  • The proximity to Puerto Varas, meet the National Park Vicente Perez Rosales becomes a must. There are a number of options: with or without adventure activities (Rafting). The Park is extremely well maintained. Although in the summer, sunset occurs around 9:00 pm, the Park closes early. Recommend to consult the hours of operation.
