Volcanos all around a large lake! Breathe taking views from all sides. It was a little cold for much activity on the lake but hiking and sight seeing around the area was wonderful.

Several picturesque towns fringe this lake, such as Puerto Varas, Frutillar. Two large and still active volcanos also fringe it. Many locals buying summer homes here and businessmen from nearby Puerto Montt live in Puerto Varas or close by.

Puerto Varas (one of the best cities to stay in Chile Lake District) borders the Llanquihue Lake. Wonderful views and lots of bird around. Very nice spot!

Yes, there are. You would arrive at Puerto Montt Airport and get transportation to Puerto Varas. You can check with your hotel if they arrange for airport pickups. We rented a car and were really happy to have it. More... More

Dear Phil, It is a very entertaining travel and with a very good road in its entirety to do the full circuit around the Lake. Visit the waterfront tourist House in Puerto Varas and ask for any map that will be very useful... More
