Llanquihue lake in Puerto Varas is so big that Zara and I had a pretty interesting argument about whether this is a lake or the sea. When a lake gets so large that it has waves in it, I tend to think that it’s more like a sea. Couple that with that big ship thrown in there and you’re really left scratching your head.
We were unlucky because on a good day you can see the snow capped Osorno Volcano on the other side. However, this majestic lake was a satisfying sight indeed!
Have you visited Frutillar and Puerto Montt while you were in Puerto Varas? I’ve been to those towns in 2011 and really loved them.
We didn’t go to Frutillar but we did stay in Puerto Montt for a couple of days before going South.
Really liked the town and enjoyed the fish market – I remember we had some delicious salmon and sopaipillas over there! ;)
