Stand in the shadows of one of the world's most active volcanos at Lago Villarrica. The lake, known for its impressive views of nearby Villarrica's snow-capped peak, covers a surface area of 170 sq km (65.6 sq mi), with several towns perched on its shores. Go for a swim at the main beach, in the town of Pucon, where large crowds gather in summer to enjoy water temperatures around 20 C (68 F). Kayak out onto the lake to take in the scenery in peace.

Where to stay in Pucon

As a world-renowned haven for outdoor adventurers, Pucon features a wide range of options when it comes to places to stay, though the bottom line for even budget prices is significantly higher than elsewhere in Chile. Many of the most affordable establishments are the hostels clustered in the city center, which often feature communal areas popular with the backpacker crowd. On the other end of the spectrum, you can opt for upscale lodges with their own pools, restaurants, and Wi-Fi capabilities, also within walking distance of just about any place in town. Pucon teems with adventure travelers in January and February, when prices go up and availability plummets. Make reservations ahead to avoid disappointment, or opt to go outside the height of tourist season.
