Lakes District

Lakes district lead.jpg

Chile’s Lake District is impossibly scenic encompassing numerous glittering blue lakes and majestic volcanoes, surrounded by verdant evergreen forests, perfect for a leisurely self-drive tour.

Explore ancient alerce (monkey puzzle) forests and wind your way around picture postcard lakeland scenery on a self-drive tour. Stop to climb a volcanic peak or hike among the forests and cross over to colourful Chiloé Island, where the traditional villages still are filled with the colourful houses on stilts of the fishing communities there.

Bird-watchers will love the tranquil Huilo Huilo Biosphere Reserve close to Temuco, where you can hike and horse-ride before continuing across Lake Pirehueico towards San Martin de Los Andes in Argentina. Then follow the stunningly scenic Seven Lakes road to Bariloche.

This is a perfect uncrowded alternative lakes crossing over the Andes to unite the two lake regions of Chile and Argentina. The more adventurous can venture further south to Pumalin Park, perfect for kayaking and hiking amid breath-taking scenery.

‘Greetings. this has turned out to be a paradise in so many ways....so a big thank you from us.

Wonderful support from your company over here....we were met at the airport (with flowers!!!!!) and introduced to our personal guide who is fabulous. Can't get over the attention to detail ....cool flannels, chilled water, fresh juice on arrival, bag full of thoughtful goodies for our trip, wonderful rooms with bathrooms bigger than our bedroom at home(!) and we were upgraded to a suite and as I write we are listening to tropical birdsong as we look out over the lagoon from our balcony. Wow!!!!!

I could go on but I'll spare you.

Thanks a million

Judy and Mike’
