Downtown we shall take time to walk about the main squares and historical monuments. Afterward we shall visit the port itself including the fish market of Angelmo where there is a large handicraft market full of artisans and lots of fresh shellfish. From Angelmo we continue on to Puerto Varas where we shall be staying (one half hour north on the shores of Lake Llanquihue.) Once here we shall enjoy a brief tour of the City of Roses as it has come to be called because of the tremendous variety of roses all over town. Afterward, we shall take you to your selected hotel and you will have the rest of the day to spend at your leisure. After dinner you might want to stroll along the shore of Lake Llanquihue.

Day 05 Puerto Varas - Peulla - Bariloche
Breakfast. In the morning we set out driving along the southern shore of the lake toward Ensenada. Even the hardest of adventurers will find it difficult not to stop and take a few photos as we approach the Osorno Volcano. Our first real stop however will be at the Saltos de Petrohue. This serie of rapids and waterfall were formed a long time ago by the cooling lava from the volcano towering behind them. They form an impressive sculpture of extruded volcanic rock shaped by thousands of years of thundering water flow. Upon arriving at the landing of Petrohue we shall board the catamaran and prepare for our crossing of Lake Todos los Santos or All Saints' Lake. The lake is surrounded by high mountains whose lower slopes are thickly forested. As we pull away from the landing and the mouth of the Petrohue River, the view is quickly stolen away by the tremendous size and proximity of ice-capped Osorno Volcano behind us. The rest of the morning we'll be sailing. To the south high above the forested shore you will see the peculiar shape of Mt. Puntiagudo and a series of waterfalls. We shall arrive in Peulla (pronounced p-way-a), at the eastern end of the lake about lunchtime. This is the heart of National Park Vicente Perez Rosales. Here we shall enjoy a lovely hike to the Cascada de La Novia or, the Bride's Waterfall, amidst native growth of the 'Valdivian Rainforest". Departure by motor coach over the Perez Rosales Pass and into Argentina. On the Argentine side we meet a ferry which takes us across Lake Frias and afterward a bus shuttles us to the final boat ride across Lake Nahuel Huapi.
