Multi Day Exploration - Chilean Lake District, Region IX, X, Chile

Back to Map 

Visited: Mid December

If you're familiar with both the Chilean and English Lake Districts you'll notice the similarities, although the Chilean version features soaring white volcanoes. Many of the roads away from the main north/south and east/west arteries are gravel, but generally well maintained and fairly quiet.
A suggested 8 day car route which explores the lakes and the national parks in the region is: Puerto Montt - Sector Chaicas - PN Alerce Andino - Puerto Montt - Temuco - Melipeuco - PN Conguillio - Cunco - Villarica - Pucon - PN Huerquehue - Villarrica - Lican Ray - Coñaripe - Puerto Fuy - Choshuenco - (road to Enco not so good) - Coñaripe - Panguipulli - Los Lagos - Entre Lagos - PN Puyehue - Osorno - Puerto Octay - Petrohue - Cochamo - Ensenada - Puerto Varas - Chacao - Castro - Cucao - PN Chiloe - Chacao - Puerto Montt - Correntoso - PN Alerce Andino - Puerto Montt
