Approximately 4 Hours
Pass through the center of Puerto Montt city with its typical square and cathedral. The latter is the town's oldest building. Leaving Puerto Montt, you will head towards Puerto Varas, situated 12 miles away.
Puerto Varas,the City of Roses, overlooks Lago Llanquihue. This is Chile’s second-largest lake, where the perpetually snow-covered Osorno and Calbuco volcanoes are perfectly reflected in the lake’s clear waters. The costanera (coastal road) leads to Puerto Varas’ main square with its gardens and historical monument.
Travel another sixteen miles north to Frutillar for a leisurely drive through the town’s historical areas. The houses here are surrounded by beautiful gardens and are built in a style reminiscent of Germany’s Black Forest region. You’ll pass by the Lutheran and Catholic churches and stop at the Colonial Museum to see the exhibits depicting the life and times of the region’s first German settlers.
You will have time to visit the Angelmó Handicraft Market on your own after you return to the ship. The market is a 400-yard walk from the pier.
