Depart from your Puerto Varas or Puerto Montt hotel or pier. Our excursion takes us around Lake Llanquihue. This is the third largest natural lake in South America and second largest in Chile at 886, 000 km. sq. and 350 meters deep. It is surrounded by several small towns and magnificent scenery, including Osorno and other volcanoes. We will stop to visit a number of them, depending on time, weather, and your interests.

We had the best time ever with Andres! What a blessing to be in a foreign country and have a "local"really show you around their area with pride, dedication, enthusiasm, and pure kindness. He was very personable and knowledgeable about Chile, the different regions, and the people. We were more than satisfied, and will definitely refer any and everyone to your company when asked about visiting Chile
