Bike tour around Lago Llanquihue
With 860 km², the second largest lake in Chile stretches like a small inland sea at the bottom of the volcanoes Osorno, Puntiagudo and Calbuco. The Lake is the ideal place for a varied bike tour, picturing the rural idyll of the landscape on one side of the lake and the foothills of the primeval forests and the lava fields of the Vicente Pérez Rosales National Park on the other. The tongue twister Llanquihue (Jang-kie-we) comes from the language of the Mapuche and means "Where to jump into the water". In fact, during summer, both during and after the bike tour, the lake offers a refreshing bath.
The tour can be taken in both directions, only the views change.
