Lake District , Chile

Chile Lake District custom travel itineraries and places to stay.

Puerto Varas, located on the shore of Lake Llanquihue, is the ideal base for exploring the surrounding lakes, forests and fjords of the Lake District. 

Puerto Montt is the primary port and gateway for travel to southern Patagonia:
The Austral Highway heads south from Puerto Montt through the Aysen Region ending over 770 miles away in Villa O'Higgins.
The Navimag Ferries depart from Puerto Montt through the Patagonian fjords south to Puerto Natales.
Skorpios cruises sail from Puerto Montt to the northern and southern Ice Fields.

Chiloe, an archipelago of hundreds of islands, can be visited on a day trip or on with several days spent at a lodge. Castro, Ancud, Dalcahue, the village of Chacao and the penguin colony at Puñihuil Bay are just a few of the places you can visit.
