Biking The Lake District

Cycle along the coast of Lake Panguipulli on one of most beautiful biking tours Chile has to offer.
Relax with a soothing soak in the Huife hot springs.
Learn about the unique plants and wildlife on a tour through the Huilo Huilo Biological Reserve.
Picture this: a landscape where fjords, volcanoes, turquoise-hued lakes, ancient forests and a shimmering blue sky blend together in one continuous panorama.
Now picture villages dotting that landscape where the doors open to warm kitchens and home cooked food served around a wood-burning stove. Pablo Neruda famously said, “He who doesn’t know the Chilean forest, doesn’t know this planet.

We couldn’t agree more, except to maybe add a bike to the mix. Ride Patagonia. Get to know the world. This morning we’ll transfer to the beautiful Lake Panguipulli to cycle along the coast on one of the most beautiful rides Chile has to offer. Revel in a fun descent out of Panguipulli, enjoy a delicious picnic lunch by the beach, and be treated to stunning views of the Choshuenco volcano. After lunch, opt to continue riding another 15 miles along the lake to Choshuenco village or hop in the van. From here, we’ll drive to Huilo Huilo Natural Reserve, where we’ll have dinner and stay overnight at the unforgettable Nothofagus Hotel & Spa.

Named for the deep freshwater lakes that dot the landscape and snowcapped volcanoes that dominate the horizon, Chile’s Lakes and Volcanoes region is a naturally spectacular location for a bike tour. You’ll be treated to stunning views of the Choshuenco volcano, and the chance to fly high over the rainforest on a canopy tour. We’ll cycle another wonderful route along Lake Llanquihue. Our approach reveals an amazing sight, as the snowcapped Osorno volcano appears to rise directly out of the lake. We’ll be treated to stunning views of this awesome volcano along our ride today as we pass through the village of Ensenada, continuing on to the Vicente Pérez Rosales National Park. Hike a short distance to visit the dramatic Petrohué Falls before we transfer back to our hotel in Puerto Varas and celebrate our farewell dinner together at our favorite local seafood restaurant.
