  • It is a beautiful Lake that I am not bored to contemplate, with rain is spectacular it seemed to have no horizon, due to the bad weather we could not navigate it. The waterfront is ideal to navigate it, either from the city of puerto varas or others from the surrounding frutillar and llanquihue

  • Give the Lake is very simple, since it is gigantic. Therefore, there is a place to visit when you come to the Lake. It might be in one of the small beaches that exist or also surround it in auto and know many landscapes, viewpoints and very nice people.

  • We toured it along on a tour. Wonderful color and calm waters. Its extension is of 860 km². Its depth is not known with certainty, but some string probes have yielded figures higher to 350 m.segun data.
