12 Day The Chilean Lake District
The ideal destination for travelers looking to take it slow in the great outdoors, the Chilean Lake District offers atmosphere aplenty with an abundance of adventure opportunity for when the mood strikes. This luxury-minded itinerary merges the incredible scenery of the Andean foothills with a selection of the region’s finest, most exclusive lodges.

It starts in Santiago, where you’ll learn about Chile’s complicated (and often brutal) Cold War past on a private tour of the capital’s recent history, including visits to the grand Palacio de La Moneda, Pinochet’s notorious Londres 38 prison, and the home of Pablo Neruda, Chile’s beloved poet. Later, explore the city’s lighter side on a delicious gastronomy tour complete with empanadas, Chilean pastries, and pisco sours, led by an expert private guide.

From the capital, we then head south to Puerto Varas and the serene shores of Lago Llanquihue. In the shadow of a pair of volcanoes, you’ll have the chance to soak up the scenic splendor of the Chilean Lake District from a modern spa hotel. Kayak across the lake, go fly-fishing, take a mountain bike into the hills, or relax; whatever your speed, Puerto Varas can accommodate.

Next, travel around the edge of Lago Llanquihue and up the face of the mighty Volcán Osorno for a captivating glimpse of Andes before checking in to a remote lodge deep in the emerald-green Valdivian Forest. Situated near Lago Ranco, one of Chile’s largest lakes, you’ll have full use of the lodge’s amenities and embark on your choice of activities in what many consider the country’s best-kept secret.

Last stop: Pucón, Chile’s adventure capital. A treasure trove of pristine glacial lakes, snow-capped volcanoes, and enveloping forests, just looking at this impressive part of the world is enough to take your breath away. From a luxuriously appointed lodge on an organic farm, you’ll fill your days fly-fishing for trout and salmon on the Liucura River, biking around Volcán Villarrica, paddling around Lago Tinquilco in a kayak, or by simply doing nothing at all.
