Nature Museums Sightseeing

City of Roses

Overlooking a lake, with a conical volcano looming in the background, Puerto Varas enjoys memorable scenery but retains its authentic atmosphere. Founded in 1853, the city of around 37,000 people has strong Germanic roots--its initial population consisted of 212 German migrant families. The city's traditional wooden architecture, built in German style, reflects that heritage. During your Puerto Varas vacation, you can make the most of a range of outdoor activities available in the area, including canyoning, kayaking, and hiking. Use our international travel planner: Puerto Varas and all its delights await.

Where to stay in Puerto Varas

To enjoy views of the volcano, stay as close to the edge of Llanquihue Lake as possible. Most higher-end accommodations sit right on the lake's shores, with a range of resorts and boutique hotels offering a touch of luxury. Look a few streets back from the lake for a choice of budget hostels and small guesthouses. Reserve your place in advance to avoid disappointment, regardless of the season.
