Full description
Explore Chile's scenic Lake District on a full-day shore excursion exclusively for in-transit cruise passengers. Get picked up from the cruise terminal in Puerto Montt in the morning and meet your English, Spanish, and Portuguese-speaking tour guide next to your ship. Enjoy an included lunch and drop-off directly at your ship at the end of the day. After meeting your guide, head to the Vicente Perez Rosales National Park that borders Llanquihue Lake. Admire the amazing landscape framed by the snowy peaks of volcanoes until you arrive in the Petrohué area on the shore of Todos Los Santos Lake. Once there, walk on the trails surrounded by an evergreen forest. Marvel at the majestic Osorno volcano and the spectacular turquoise color of the Petrohué River, which jumps among great masses of crystallized lava. Next, replenish your energy with a typical lunch before continuing to the lovely city of Puerto Varas, also known as the City of Roses. See the main attractions of the city, and visit the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church. Admire the church's Baroque style, which is an exact replica of a church in the Black Forest in Germany, the original home of many of the area's settlers. From Puerto Varas, make your way back to Puerto Montt. There, visit the German Settlers Monument, located in front of the main square and the cathedral, and enjoy the architectural heritage and the mix of cultures. Stop in the famous Angelmó area and discover its many handicraft shops, the Fishermen’s Cove, and the bustling local market where the fisherman bring their daily catches. At the end of the tour, return to the cruise terminal.
