Excursion Around the Llanquihue Lake & to the Osorno Volcano
A full-day excursion where we go around the second largest lake of Chile, filled with native flora and fauna that will connect you with this beautiful region and with the people that will join you for this journey.
We will begin our excursion from the “City of Roses”, Puerto Varas. We will follow an ancient route used by the colonizers, around the Llanquihue lake. Then we will reach the cities of Llanquihue and Frutillar, which stand out thanks to its architecture, its gardens and an unparalleled view of the Osorno and Puntiagudo volcanoes. There, we will visit the German Colonization Museum, recognition to the German immigrants built using the façade of an old ranch house. Later, we will visit the north coast of the Llanquihue lake, Puerto Octay, a touristic area that mesmerizes visitors because of its natural beauty and the historical aspects of its streets, houses and gastronomy. Then, we will visit Puerto Fonck, Puerto Clocker, Río Blanco, La Cascada village and Ensenada, town placed at the feet of the Osorno volcano, making the town a perfect photographic point to capture the magnificent geological structure that characterizes our region. From there, we will begin climbing until we reach the Ski center and the Osorno volcano mountain, placed at 1,240 meters of altitude. Once there, you will be able to enjoy the beautiful view of the landscape, the eternal snow, water bodies and forests.
On our way back, we will visit the mouth of the Pescado river, and the towns of Los Riscos and La Poza, surrounded by beautiful green colors, until we reach the city of Puerto Varas once again.
