Pucón & Lake District

Chile's Lake District, in the Southern Central region, has been a magnet for European settlers since the 19th century, giving many of its towns an alpine feel with their wooden architecture and Germanic named local beers. The fertile countryside is punctuated by snow-capped volcanoes and brilliant emerald lakes, ideal for walking, hiking, horse riding and boat trips. The combination of the cool mountain air and the warm summer sunshine makes for a particularly refreshing and relaxing ambiance.

Mountain town on the shore of Lake Villarica in the heart of the beautiful Lake District and overlooked by a snow-capped active Villarica Volcano. There are numerous outdoor activities and mountains trails for walks, water sports, white water rafting, kayaking and in the Winter, skiing and snowboarding.
