It is located at the southwestern shore of Llanquihue Lake, 20 km away from Puerto Montt. Puerto Varas gathers poetry in its streets with rosebushes, and the touching emotion that the lake will make you feel thanks to its intimate bay. The reflection of the German colonization remains in the constructions and gardens. The Osorno and Calbuco volcanoes in the horizon reaffirm the facts: the insertion of different cultures in difficult and desolated territories, where nature placed the greatest beauties but also its greatest harshness as challenging humans.
The city of Puerto Varas is nowadays one of the most important tourist destinations in Chile; it has a very interesting architecture and hotel infrastructure with many options for visitors: Hotels, Cabins, Campsites and Lodgings. Many activities may be performed: trekking, horse riding, rafting, ascents to Osorno Volcano, and the favorite activity: sport fishing, performed by both national and foreign visitors, who specially come to this area during the season to enjoy this wonderful sport.
During your visit, you’ll be able to go to the Iglesia del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús (“Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus”), the Casino of Puerto Varas, the Lutheran Church and Puerto Chico with its constructions of early 20th Century.
