When you are lucky on a sunny day, it's great to walk along the shore and enjoy the view on the volcanoes.

It doesn't matter which town you go to along the Llanquihue Lake, you'll love every one of them. The spectacular views of Three surrounding volcanoes is something you don't normally see. And having direct access to one of them is also worth the trip. There...More

The lake seems like and ocean- it has small waves with wind, a little beach downtown Puerto Varas. The views, when the sun comes out, of Volcanoes Osorno and Cabulco are really breathtaking. You can take boat trips on the lake.

We just walked along the lake shore. It is quiet, beautiful, as is portrayed with Vulcan Osorno at the other side.

This is a very scenic boat ride on a beautiful lake. It reminded me of Lake Tahoe. When we were there the mist was hanging in the canyons that came down to the lake creating a beautiful scene.

Views are amazing from anywhere around the lake. Great restaurants and hotels. Great way to know the culture in this area. The views of the mountains are incredible. The area is known for its cattle and dairy. I recommend trying a streak and the cheeses.

Low cloud obscured the tops of the volcanos while we were staying in Puerto Varas but driving around the lake was still beautiful & it was interesting to hear the history of the area & learn about the salmon industry.

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
