What you can expect


Puerto Montt City Highlights

Enjoy complimentary pick-up on a private vehicle with a/c from your cruise port or hotel. You will first go on a panoramic drive around Puerto Montt while your guide points out areas of interest as you make your way towards the city center. Once you reach the town square (plaza de armas) you will see the oldest standing building; the famous wooden cathedral built in 1857, inspired by the Parthenon in Athens.

Puerto Varas

You will head north to the town of Puerto Varas. Puerto Varas was colonized by German settlers and is known for its German traditions, beer seafood, natural scenery and luxurious hotels. This town is located on the shores of Llanquihue Lake and the perfect cone of Osorno Volcano and the snow-capped peaks of Mt. Calbuco and Mt Tronador are visible from the lakefront. You can enjoy walking around town filled with fragrant roses and historical statues that represent the history and founding of the town.

Fundo (traditional Chilean ranch)

Then it's time to visit the fundo (ranch). You'll be warmly greeted by the huasos; similar to America's cowboy or Argentina's gaucho, the huaso is an excellent horseman and ranch hand. Here, you'll learn all about the world of los huasos, their customs and traditions all the while enjoying some Pisco Sour, skewers and "chupe de jaiba." You'll also be able to watch their skills at work as they show off their Chilean horses in a rodeo.

Show of Cueca

Enjoy folk music and dancing while you sit down for a hearty lunch.
Lunch Time

Typical Chilean Lunch

Enjoy lunch of empanadas, spit-roasted barbecue beef accompanied by salads, sopaipillas and pebre all accompanied by refreshments including Chilean wine. For dessert enjoy some kuchen, German pie.

At the end of the day, you'll return to port along the same scenic route with a better appreciation of the acclaimed huaso and the Chilean horse, and their contributions to Chile.
