Description

On this unforgettable trek to Argentina, cross the Andes and end your trip in the fascinating city of Bariloche. Along the way, admire views of volcanoes, cruise across Todos los Santos Lake and admire the beautiful Petrohué Waterfalls.

Leaving Puerto Varas, head to Petrohué, bordering Lake Llanquihue, where impressive views of Osorno and Calbuco volcanoes dominate the landscape. Then enter Vicente Pérez Rosales National Park and visit Petrohué Waterfalls – whimsical volcanic rocks bathed by green waterfalls that make the perfect picture.

Next, sail to Peulla by cruising on Todos los Santos Lake. If the weather permits, you may get incredible views of Osorno and Puntiagudo volcanoes and Mount Tronador. Once you arrive in Peulla, a paradise for nature lovers, take a break with free time for lunch.

Then board a bus to Puerto Frias. After the formalities at the Chilean customs office, cross the Andes Mountain range at 3,202 feet (976 m) above sea level. Descend by a winding road to Puerto Frías, navigating by Felix Frías Lake, and arrive in Porto Alegre to take a bus to Puerto Blest.

Departing from Puerto Blest, begin the last portion of your trek on Nahuel Huapi Lake on the way to Puerto Pañuelo.

The downside is that it was raining and, we were told there, that’s usual. There should be more warnings about that when people buy the tour. Also, staff struggled to manage the logistics (luggage, customs, people with different itineraries); I expected more efficiency

Too complicated and messy as a trip with lots of queueing on and off the four buses and three boats and all the guides and officials were really sharp and bossy about how to queue and what to do, lit took me back to long forgotten memories of school trips.The two customs posts were especially tedious. The visit to the Petrohue falls was too expensive for the twenty minutes you get there. The guides spent the whole time on the bus and boat before lunch selling their activities during the three hour lunch break at Peulla. Peulla has one hotel for lunch which had reasonably good service but poor food. They don't give diners the wifi code which seems petty. The 4x4 bus from Peulla on the rough road to the Argentinian frontier is really noisy, so much so it drowned out everything the guide said about the national park. Lastly be aware that the weather is unpredictable - it was very poor on the Chilean side of the Andes, clouds and rain blocked all the views. all in all too expensive, too many people, too many transfers.
