Hot springs, high mountain peaks, alpine lakes, sandy beaches, rivers, volcanos, waterfalls, wilderness environments, and a rain forest climate: these are but a few examples of the variety you'll find in the enchanting Los Lagos region in Chile. And when you stay in one of our vacation rentals in the beautiful country of Chile, you can rest assured that you'll have a safe, inviting, and private home base to return to at the end of each adventurous day.
Carve your way down the powdery slopes in the winter, and in the summer, hike the lush, green forests, or take exciting rafting trips down rivers as you soak up the Chilean sun. Drop your hook in one of Los Lagos' shimmering lakes, then return home to your vacation home in stunning Puerto Varas and cook up a delicious dinner.
With 18,759 square miles of territory to explore, from Corcovado National Park and Pumalín Park to the town of Puerto Montt and Chiloé Island, you'll have an abundance of natural wonders to explore and experience, from the towering Andes to sandy beaches and everything in between. For a change of pace, indulge in the history of this spectacular part of the world to see wooden churches, whale-populated fjords, and houses on stilts.
In addition to stunning natural beauty and fascinating history, Los Lagos is steeped in mythology, mystery, and legends. Due to the isolation Chiloé Island enjoyed when the Spanish arrived to overtake Chile, it has formed its own unique mythologies, many of which center around the importance of the ocean in the locals' daily lives. Participate in the folkloric festivities, browse the handicrafts, and indulge in the cuisine to begin to get a sense of the lore that serves as a foundation to this magical archipelago.
Whether you choose to visit in the summer or winter, and whether your visit is short or long, you'll leave transformed from the time you've spent and the experiences you enjoyed in this stunning and diverse region of Chile.
