The Lakes

The lakeside towns of Pucón and Puerto Montt are the most popular starting points for visitors to Chile’s northern Patagonia. Most come to ride, paddle and hike amidst the wilderness of lush pastures, crystalline lakes, raging melt-water rivers and snow-capped volcanoes. This is one of world’s adventure hotspots and its isolation means that large areas remain miraculously 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 in terms of not only destinations but also experiences at all levels.

For the most exceptional experiences, we steer guests to a superbly luxurious cliff top reserve, a family-owned farmhouse and a cosy 3-suite lakeside boutique. Each offers something totally different and some of the most experienced guides in the region.

Whichever piece of region you explore, there is sure to be a valley of lush green vistas awaiting. Start planning your luxury vacation to The Lakes Region of Chile with our experts!
