Lake Tour from Bariloche to Puerto Montt

Available once again, this excursion has become a classic. Today, the two emblem cities of Argentinian-Chilean Patagonia may be joined again: San Carlos de Bariloche and Puerto Montt.

After being cancelled for a long time, one of the most extraordinary tours in Southern Argentina is now available. It joins the Cities of San Carlos de Bariloche and Puerto Montt across the Andes on a catamaran.

The beauty of the tour itinerary is second to none. Both cities are joined through five land and three lake destinations. It is an ideal way of getting to know both countries.

It is a day-trip but there is also the chance to spend the night in Chile, at the coquettish City of Puella, where visitors may enjoy all the adventure activities available.

What captivates foreign tourists is that in a matter of hours visitors may get a general idea of both Patagonian countries, which of course includes tasting cuisine specialties.

The travel agency in charge of this adventure today is Cruce Andino and they have made this tour famous worldwide.

The tour leaves from San Carlos de Bariloche at 7 o’clock in the morning. The adventurers get together at Puerto Pañuelo (Argentina), feeling eager to get on board the catamaran that will sail across Lake Nahuel Huapi up to Puerto Blest.

Once they reach Puerto Blest, the group lands and is driven by bus to Puerto Alegre, where they will embark again in order to sail beautiful Lake Frías up to their next destination.

At this spot, they must get off the boat to carry out all the migratory proceedings at the Chilean Customs Office. Back on the bus, a two-hour journey across the Chilean geography will lead them to Peulla, a small district in Chile where they may choose to stay overnight.

When they reach Peulla, Lake Todos los Santos (Vicente Pérez Rosales National Park) is the ideal spot to have lunch and make a stop to enjoy and comment on what they have experienced so far. After digesting their meal, the group gets on a catamaran again to sail this wonderful water body, from which the magnificent presence of the Osorno Volcano and its always snow-capped top may be observed.
