Lake District in Southern Chile

Lake District

The utterly spectacular landscape of the Lake District makes this destination a firm favourite of guests travelling to Chile. Breathtaking glacial lakes mirror the frosted tips of dormant volcanoes and the verdant flora of nearby national parks. Stretching over 300 kilometres (186 miles), this region was once the homeland of the courageous Mapuche people who fought off the advances of Inca and Spanish invaders. It has since grown from thriving farmlands into the tranquil tourist mecca it is today. Quaint villages, such as Pućon perch along the various lake shorelines and offer adventures such as horse riding, hiking, fishing, mountain climbing, nature walks and water sports. Pućon is situated along the shores of the Villarrica Lake, near the active Volcano Villarrica. Traveller’s visiting this destination will be treated to sensational views and landscapes as well as exceptional activities such as the opportunity to hike up the volcano and unwind in a natural hot spring.
