Lake District Discovery

Wicked Campervan in lake district

Trip between the lakes in a Wicked Camper

Can you believe that so many lakes can coexist on a little strip of land? Well, they can! And just a few miles from each other… Don’t miss the opportunity to drive among millenary trees, beds of lava, colorful lakes and landscapes. Each lake has one, or multiple volcanos (some still active) close-by, releasing the vibes that makes this region so special.

Starting from Temuco, a first nice stop is the Conguillío National Park, one of the most popular parks in Chile mainly due to his imposing volcano and wild life variety. Driving south, you will find Villarrica and Pucón, both places marked by the German influence, and located on the shore of Villarrica Lake. You can find there good food, hot springs and amazing nature and parks as the Huerquehue National Park.

Head then to the Seven Lakes District, considered as one of the main attractions in the South of Chile. This region of seven lakes divided between Chile and Argentina have amazing spots to go fishing, trekking, swimming and way more activities!

The Seven Lakes are : PanguipulliCalafquénRiñihuePirihueicoNeltumePellaifa and Pullinque.

From Pucón, you can also cross the border to San Martin de los Andes and drive South to Bariloche where more amazing lakes are waiting for you. You can cross back to Chile through Villa Angostura and get to Osorno. On your way, don’t miss the amazing Puyehue National Park.

Between Osorno and Puerto Varas, lots of nice stops are all along the way: the towns of Llanquihue and Frutillar located on the edge of the Llanquihue lake that share the german influence and tradition. There, you can practice water skiing, swimming, sport fishing, sailing or windsurf. The lake is located near the route you must follow if you want to go to Vicente Pérez Rosales National Park, which has eight routes for trekking.
