Travel: Visiting the Lake District from Puerto Varas by Hortense
Puerto Varas Hotels
One of the highlights of
any trip to Chile, the Lake District is made of wonderful landscapes of
shimmering lakes, pristine forest and imposing peaks. The capital of the
"Los Lagos" region, Puerto
Montt, may not seem like it has much to offer with its chaotic streets
and far from beautiful architecture. The city rapidly developed following
a salmon fishing boom and the increase in tourism to the region, but without
any kind of urban planning involved. However, it boasts excellent tourism
infrastructure and is the perfect launching point for expeditions into
the stunning Lake District.
|Travelers looking for a
more peaceful destination can stay in Puerto Varas, a small residential
town located on the outskirts of Puerto Montt and which is home to many
excellent, comfortable hotels, as well as good restaurants. Situated right
on the shore of the striking Lago Llanquihue, Puerto Varas is a great base
for tours on and around the lake, and is a charming fishing village which
has managed to retain its picturesque charm even as tourism grew.
Puerto Varas is also the
gateway to the Parque Nacional Vincente Perez Rosales, a beautiful national
reserve protecting the entire area, and home to several beautiful lakes
of various sizes. Between the hustle and bustle of Puerto Montt, and the
wealthy crowds of Pucon, a nearby lake town, Puerto Varas offers a great
alternative to visit the region.
Within the park, the eastern
slopes of the awe-inspiring Osorno volcano provide for an excellent day-trip.
You can travel to Ensenada, a tiny village located right at the foot of
the volcano. With a few lodging and dining options, this is a great base
for those who wish to get away from it all and enjoy a full nature experience.
accommodations are equipped with their own kitchen and provide stunning
lake views, perfect for independent travelers who just want to enjoy nature
at its best and stray away from the regular crowds of tourists.
Puerto Varas itself is a
pleasant town which can easily be explored on foot. Settled by the German
around 1910-1940, it features many wooden buildings directly inspired by
early 20th century German architecture, which makes for a nice, old-fashioned
atmosphere. At least 8 former settlers' mansions have been declared national
monuments and deserve a visit. You'll find some of these beautiful colonial
homes on Purisima street: Gastof Haus, Casa Yunge, Casa Horn, Casa Opitz,
and Casa Maldonado. A few of them have been turned into hotels.
