Sitting on the shores of Lake Llanquihue in central Chile, Puerto Varas is shadowed by the distant Osorno Volcano. This quaint town is a perfect place to unwind and soak up the natural beauty of Lake Llanquihue. Thanks to an influx of German immigrants in the 19th century, beautiful German-style buildings line the streets and lend a charming feel to the town. Explore the vast lake on a rowing boat or simply relax on the shore with a book in hand before tucking into a traditional lunch. If you’re looking for some adventure in Puerto Varas, then head to the Petrohue Waterfalls. This beautiful cascade
is only a short hike from Puerto Varas and offers the perfect place for an afternoon picnic or to enjoy a relaxing walk through the dense forest. If you're visiting in the cooler months and want to hit the slopes, Osorno Volcano has two ski resorts nearby and offers incredible views of the lake and town.
