  • I was So impressed. Very beautiful area of Puerto Varas. Lake Llanquihue is the second largest lake in Chile... It's great for walks and relaxing and stunning scenario for photography. There's a view to the amazing Osorno Volcano too. I recommend going there for a day or two. You can visit the city of Frutillar in the same day, is close by and gorgeous too.
  • This lake is gorgeous with the volcanos. It makes for good pictures when the sun is shining on the snow.
  • Amazing lake. It is peaceful, with breathtaking views. Its water temperature allows you to swim and the shallow depth, to be sure of children's safety. Sorrounded by two volcanoes, you can take incredible pictures at any time of day. Another important feature is that the northern road has many miles of cycle road.
  • love it
