Your journey at a glance

Embark on this exciting 9-day itinerary that explores the glorious landscapes of southern Chile, including various destinations that are well off the beaten track. Once you cross the Bío-Bío River, the spectacular Lake District begins some 500 km (310 miles) south of the Chilean capital of Santiago. From this point on, temperatures are lower, the air more humid, and snow-capped volcanoes and ancient forests drape the landscape.

However, this region is not only about nature, but there are also significant cultural attributes that make this terrain really interesting. The Mapuche Indians form Chile’s largest ethnic group, and it was in this area that they fiercely defended their land against the Incas and the Spanish, proving themselves courageous and daunting opponents. Neither empire advanced beyond this area, such was their resilience. German settlers arrived to the region in the 19th Century, and their stamp is particularly visible in-and-around Puerto Varas. Marvel at Chile’s natural and cultural wonders while traversing this breathtaking region.

2 nights Santiago | 1 night Puerto Varas | 2 nights Huilo Huilo | 3 nights Lake District
