We Are Here

Chile – Puerto Varas

From Bariloche, we crossed the Andes over to Chile, through the snowy border crossing.

Puerto Varas is a small town with lots of good hiking nearby. We set off for Vicente Pérez Rosales National Park, near Volcán Osorno.

It’s a very beautiful park with some black volcanic rock and great scenery.

There are also some great waterfalls called Saltos del Petrohué, with a cloudy view of the volcano in the background.

It gave me a chance to use a new setting I have found on the camera. Slow motion video!

The town is well known for its German traditions, as a lot of German speaking people settled here when the town was founded. It shows in some of the architecture.
