Stretching from Puerto Montt to Temuco, the Chile lake district is comprised of lush farmlands, dense forests, snow-capped volcanoes and beautiful lakes, probably making it one of the most visually pleasing areas of the country. The Chile lake district was earlier inhabited by the indigenous Mapuche tribe before the German, Austrian and Swiss immigrants took over and transformed this province into one of the best dairy farmlands of the country. Heavy influence of German culture can be seen in the region’s architectures and culinary styles. However, the real action lies in the region’s many national parks and adventure hotspots of Pucon and Puerto Varas, drawing thousands of visitors annually. Indulge in stunning hikes and volcano climbing adventures along with river rafting, kayaking and horse riding. In winter, skiing down the snow-cloaked volcano is a bonus.
