Why Visit The Chilean Lake District?

"With snow capped volcanoes peering over icy blue lakes, the Lake District is home to some dramatic scenery, but also a scattering of interesting, historic towns."

The Lake District in Chile refers to a large area south of Santiago and the Central Valley which stretches over many different regions and comprises a rich variety of landscapes and terrains. Snow capped volcanos stand guard over deep blue lakes, hidden waterfalls and dense forests. It is an area of remarkable natural beauty that is perennially popular with outdoor enthusiasts. As well as the indigenous Mapuche people the area has a strong European influence after an influx of German settlers in the mid 19th century. This gives the region a distinctly alpine feel mixed in with local folklore and mythology. It is also a good region to explore by self-drive.
