The mystique of the Lakes District in Chile
The Chilean Patagonia surprises with its many spectacular faces, and up in the north, the Lake District rises as a region full of lakes, rivers, volcanos, mountains, forests, and great things to do all year long.
The scenery has been linked to Switzerland several times, due to its geographical similarities and the alpine villages built by the first settlements.
The sub-region of Araucanía, is home for the iconic “araucaria” trees (a type of cypress), and it´s a great place to enjoy and relax at one of the local lodges, such as Hacienda Vira Vira, in Pucón.
Puerto Montt, it´s probably the most strategic point to connect all the highlights in the area. It´s the arrival (or departure, depending on the direction) point for the Lakes Cross Excursion coming from Bariloche (Argentina), a spectacular and unique way to cross the Andes range through the lakes.
The archipelago of Chiloé is a group of hundreds of islands, facing the Pacific Ocean, which largest one is Isla Grande. The traditions of the ancient inhabitants still present nowadays, and can be seen in different folkloric and cultural events. The flora and fauna in this ecosystem is very rich, including ocean wildlife.
There are many ways to reach the Lakes District, either from Argentina (through the lakes cross excursion), or from many other parts of Chile, by land, sea, or air.
