OSORNO VOLCANO

The perfectly conical, Osorno volcano looms large over Todos Los Santos and Puerto Varas in Chile. In a calm display of Forward thinking, and perhaps a little vanity, she has never ‘blown her top’, preferring to let off steam Through the 40 fissures around her base, ensuring she is always the centre of attention.

Itinerary

Met upon arrival in Bariloche, on the shore of Lake Nahuel Huapi. Transfer to hotel.

Morning tour along the picturesque ‘Circuito Chico’ is probably the world’s most scenic city tour, and the view from Campanero Hill is justifiably regarded by National Geographic as one of the finest on the planet.

Sit back and enjoy one of the most beautiful ways to cross a border on the famous Lakes Crossing which transports you to Chile via a series of boats and buses, during this 12 hrs journey.

Sail across Andean lakes surrounded by snow covered peaks and drive through thick forests with superb views. Be dropped off at your lakeside hotel in Puerto Varas.

Full day guided tour of the heritage and culture of Chiloe. Visit some of the 16 World Heritage wooden churches, the iconic palafitos (timber houses on stilts), and have some time in the handcraft markets in Dalcahue, the best in Chile.

Transfer to the airport and fly to Punta Arenas where you will take a regular bus across the Patagonian steppe 3 hrs north to Puerto Natales.
Transfer to your hotel on the shores of the fjord.

Full day trip to the astonishingly beautiful Torres del Paine NP, the 8th wonder of the world. Gaze in awe at the majestic Towers and Cuernos.

Take a bus across the border to Argentina and into the pretty village of El Calafate. Afternoon to explore the town and maybe search for flamingos on the lakeshore.

Full day trip to the colossal performance that is the Perito Moreno Glacier. The most accessible advancing glacier in the world, it creaks and groans as it pushes Forward. Stroll along the walkways and take a front row seat to watch and listen as the regular ice calvings, thunderously crash into the water below.

Transfer to the airport for your onward travel.
