Puerto VarasSituated on the shore of the Lago Llanquihue, the city Puerto Varas is renowned as one of the most beautiful towns in Chile.
Today, it offers the visitor an astonishing landscape, a good hotel and gastronomy infrastructure, a modern casino, a beach at the lakeshore and in the summer various open air cultural and culinary activities.
The fast growth of the coastal town Puerto Montt, 20 km from Puerto Varas, made Puerto Varas a residence of choice, which led to an increase in population and an enrichment of the urban life.
While in Puerto Varas you can engage in activities such as trekking, horseback riding or rafting and treasure the view by making sufficient pictures while ascending the volcano Osorno.
