Full description
Enjoy a full-day shore excursion exclusive for in-transit cruise customers. Get picked up from the cruise terminal in Puerto Montt in the morning and meet your tour guide next to your ship. Then, head to the Angelmó area in Puerto Montt, famous for its many handicraft shops, the Fishermen’s Cove, and the local market. Here, get a glimpse of the fishermen's daily activities as they bring their fresh catches to market. From the market, move on to the German Settlers Monument, located in front of the main square and the cathedral. Find out more about the architectural heritage and the mix of cultures with your English, Spanish, and Portuguese-speaking guide. Next, head north to Frutillar, a beautiful village that recalls old Bavaria, where the first settlers in the area came from. Walk around its beautiful, old, German-style houses, and admire the gardens and incomparable views of the Osorno and Puntiagudo volcanoes. Visit the lake shore and see the Lake Theatre where a famous classical music festival takes place every summer. Continue along Llanquihue Lake to arrive at the lovely Puerto Varas, also known as the City of Roses. Visit the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church, an exact replica of a baroque church in the Black Forest in Germany. Explore the Old Neighborhood where the first Germans settled, then go downtown along the border of the beautiful Llanquihue Lake. Savor lunch in a typical restaurant before being returned to your cruise ship at the port in Puerto Montt.
