Lake Llanquihe Round Trip

Travel Type: Culture / Nature
Duration: 1 Day

  • Tour Description
During this tour, you will circle Lake Llanquihue. At 870 sq km/336 sq mi, it is Chile’s second-largest lake. To begin with, the journey from Puerto Varas follows the southern shore of Lake Llanquihue, as far as the small settlement of Ensenada, from where there is a wonderful view towards the three volcanoes of Puntiagudo, Osorno and Calbuco. Just a short distance north, beyond Ensenada, a stop is made at Laguna Verde, or the Green Lake. This bay, surrounded by forest and set on the Llanquihue lake, takes its name from the intensely green colouring of its waters. The journey around the lake continues, interspersed by a stroll, before finally reaching the village of Puerto Octay, at the northern end of the lake. From there, the journey continues to Frutillar along the western shore of Lake Llanquihue. During this section of the drive, you will see beautiful wooden houses from the era of German settlement along the way. In Frutillar itself, the lovingly restored houses with their brightly coloured flower decorations give visitors the impression of having travelled back in time. This is also where you can visit an interesting open-air museum with restored houses from the German colonisation era, including furniture from the earliest times of settlement. After visiting Frutillar, you will return to Puerto Varas.
