Southern Chile & The Lake District

Southern Chile and the Lake District is home to twelve clear blue glacial lakes, six snow-capped volcanoes, temperate rainforests with thousand-year-old trees, hot springs, and rushing rivers as well as charming towns like Villarrica, Pucón, Valdivia, Corral, Puerto Varas, Puerto Montt, and the most famous of all, Chiloé, an island with colorful houses built on stilts, and historical wooden churches, 16 of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

In addition to its natural beauty and charming towns, visitors can go kayaking, white water rafting, trekking, and skiing. There are also several craft fairs, shops, and boutiques that sell the various handicrafts made by the indigenous Mapuche people, and multiple excellent seafood restaurants. Travelers should try the local specialties of Parillada de Mariscos (grilled mixed seafood), Cancato (grilled fish stuffed with a variety of vegetables, cheese or sausage), and Curanto (various meats and sausages, fish, mollusks and potatoes and corn cooked in an earthen pit).

While the climate in the region is temperate all year, May to October can be very cold, with much more rainfall. Therefore, Spring and Summer, between November and April, are the best times to visit.
