How to get there

By car:

Leave from Valdivia and take Route 207 up to Paillaco. Then continue along Route 5 until you get to the Reumén crossing and then turn right and travel the final 42 km to Futrono. Total distance traveled equals 102 kilometers of paved road.

From the South, take southern Route 5 up to the Reumén crossing and turn right. Take Route 5 once again and travel the rest of the road up to Futrono.

From Osorno, take Route 5 towards the North and travel 30 kilometers up to Río Bueno. Turn East and travel 50 kilometers more. Total distance traveled equals 80 kilometers of paved road.

Leaving from Argentina, the Cardenal Samoré international pass, former Puyehue, located 1,314 m.a.s.l., (42° 29´ 07” South– 70° 25´ 91” West), which is open all year round is a good choice. It is considered the second most important pass in the country and it leads directly to Puerto Montt (220 km away) and Osorno (117 km away), through the Chilean Southern Road and to the rest of the Chilean Patagonia.
The road is completely paved. As this is an important commercial pass, it is usual to find heavy traffic. Once in Osorno, see the tour described above for such city.

By bus

Get to Valdivia by plane leaving from Santiago and then continue by land through any of the countless interprovincial bus lines that get to Futrono.
Also from Santiago, visitors may choose to get to Futrono by land, by using non-stop bus services.
