    Chaiguata lake

Chile’s Lake District lies in the ‘La Araucanía’ and the ‘Los Lagos’ regions. The Lake District contains 12 large lakes and at least a dozen smaller lakes with between them rivers, waterfalls, forests, hot springs, the Andes and 6 volcanoes, the highest of which is the Villarca volcano (2847 metres).
The Lake District is definitely one of the highlights of your trip to Chile! A special region for those who love nature and outdoor sports, the landscape is often compared to Switzerland. It definitely has some common ground, but it also has its own identity.

Conguilio National Park
Temuco, the capitol of the ‘La Araucanía’ province is also called the gateway to the ‘Conguilio’ National Park. The name of the park is derived of a word from the ‘Mapuche’ language that means ‘water with Araucaria seeds’. The park has a surface area of about 608 km2. In short, the Llaima volcano, the Sierra Nevada, lava streams, lakes and beautiful forests with Araucarias and Nothofagus trees are what make this park so beautiful.

Chiloé
Puerto Montt, the capitol of the ‘Los Lagos’ province is also called the gateway to Chiloé. The Chiloé archipelago consists of 30 islands. Isla Grande, the largest island in the group is Chile’s second largest island (after Terra del Fuego). Everyone that visits Chiloé is charmed by its beauty. Partly because of this, it has managed to safeguard its rich ethnic and folkloristic traditions. This is a place where abundant nature goes hand in hand with very friendly inhabitants, fantastic mythology, a special gastronomy and 150 extraordinary churches and chapels. These churches and chapels have been on the UNESCO world heritage list since 200.

It is a sparsely populated area with a Northern European climate. The summers can be quite agreeable. This region is well suited to travel with a rental car because of its good infrastructure and short distances. 

Tip!
If you have booked a domestic flight, from Santiago or another northern city, make sure you’re seated on the left side of the plane. This is where you have the best views of the Andes Cordillera. If you’re flying north from Punta Arenas, make sure you’re seated on the other side.
