The Lake District


The lakeside towns of Pucón and Puerto Varas are the most popular starting points for visitors to Chile’s northern Patagonia.

It is a place to ride, paddle, and hike amidst the wilderness of lush pastures, crystalline lakes, raging meltwater rivers, and snow-capped volcanoes.

This is one of the world’s adventure hotspots and its isolation means that large areas remain wonderfully free of tourists.

In the summer, scale the Osorno volcano, plunge into thermal pools, raft the mighty Futaleufú River, or relax with a picnic by the lakeside. In the winter, the slopes of the Chillán volcano offer some of the best cross-country skiing in South America. The Lakes are a year-round destination with much to offer experiences at all levels.

For an exceptional trip, we steer guests to a superbly luxurious clifftop reserve, a family-owned farmhouse and a cosy three-suite lakeside boutique. Each offers something totally different and some of the most experienced guides in the region.

The Lake District is a haven of natural wonder, where the wild beauty of Patagonia unfolds in a symphony of crystal-clear lakes, verdant pastures, and towering snow-capped volcanoes.

Here, adventure and tranquility coexist, inviting you to embark on a journey through landscapes that inspire awe at every turn. Whether you’re paddling across serene waters, hiking through lush forests, or riding through open fields, the Lake District offers an unparalleled connection with nature.

Known as one of the world’s premier destinations for outdoor enthusiasts, this region remains blissfully untouched, providing a peaceful escape from the bustle of tourist hotspots. Summer months burst with activities, from climbing the majestic Osorno volcano to soaking in natural thermal pools and white-water rafting on the Futaleufú River. Winter transforms the landscape into a snowy wonderland, with the Chillán volcano’s slopes offering exceptional cross-country skiing opportunities.

The Lake District is a year-round sanctuary for those seeking either adrenaline-fueled adventures or moments of serene contemplation by a tranquil lake. For those desiring an exceptional stay, we recommend exclusive accommodations like a luxurious clifftop reserve, a charming family-owned farmhouse, or a cozy lakeside boutique with just three suites. Each location provides a unique vantage point of the region’s splendor, accompanied by some of the most skilled guides to enhance your exploration.
