The Patagonia of the Lakes

To the south, Chile merges with Argentina in the so-called Lake and Magellanic regions.

The first stop is Puerto Montt, Puerto Varas and Chiloe Island, a region that offers a curious mix of active volcanoes, pingineras ports and Chiloe Island with its stilt houses.

On the Argentine side, Bariloche is the most important city, followed by San Martin, El Bolson and Esquel. Together they make up the so-called corridor of the 7 Lakes.

Crossing the mountain range, by land or also through the crossing of lakes are Puerto Montt and Puerto Varas. Interesting contrast, with the Pacific in the background and surrounded by volcanoes, some of them still active.

Puerto Montt is also a port of departure for cruises that connect with the Chile of Puerto Natales and the Torres del Paine mentioned above.
