Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.

Activities and Outings

Upon arrival to the Quincho Country Home, a briefing will take place about the region, either in the garden with a glass of Quincho Sour, inside the cozy kitchen or relaxing by the fireplace. During this time the exploration program for your stay will be fixed according to your special interests. The programs are entirely flexible and can be adjusted at any time during a stay. Most activities provided are done so on a private basis but a few explorations have to be shared such as river rafting or the navigation on Lake Todos los Santos to Peulla. Depending on the length of the activity a Quincho picnic or lucn will be sent along, or a meal enjoyed at a local restaurant.

National Park Vicente Perez Rosales, founded in 1926 and the oldest park of Chile, is just 45 driving minutes from Quincho. One of the most beautiful panoramic roads imaginable follows the shores of Lake Llanquihue with the Andes and volcanoes as a stunning backdrop.

The park's 251,000 hectares lie between Lake Llanquihue and the Argentine border flanked by Volcan Osorno, Mount Puntiagudo and Mount Tronador. A wide variety of activities are available including hiking through temperate rainforest and up the slopes of Volcan Osorno, rafting on the Petrohue River (grade 3+), a boat excursion across Lake Todos los Santos to Peulla or to Isla Madalana. Another must besides the drive half way up the volcano is to visit the waterfalls at Petrohue.

Immense Llanquihue lake covers 56,000 ha and is the second largest inChile. When German settlers arrived from Valdivia and Puerto Montt in the mid 19th century, they could hardly even see the lake due to the extremely dense native forest. Today several villages with German influence such as Frutillar, Puerto Octay and Puerto Varas thrive on the lake shores. Small museums show the lodge's great-grandparents handicrafts and tools. One favorite way to explore the past is the drive around the lake, viewing wonderful old wooden farmhouses with gardens brimming with flowers. A living testament to this history of settlement.

Set in beautiful surroundings this is the northernmost fjord in Chilean Patagonia. Following the road around Lake Llanguihue, the road splits after the village of Ensenada toward the Reloncavi estuary. The hamlet of Ralun lies at the northern end of the fjord about 30 kms from Ensenada; just a few houses and a small grocery shop but with a view to die for with Volcan Yates as the backdrop to the fjord. Following the east shore of the estuary the pretty village of Cochamo lies further 17kms on a gravel road. The main attraction beside the beautiful setting is the wooden church similar to those built around 1900 on the island of Chiloe. Several salmon farms can be seen on the way to the pristine Puelo valley which connects with Argentina. Return back to Puerto Montt on the famous Carretera Austral road passing by the entrance to National Park Alerce Andino.

Located a little south of Puerto Montt this National Park covers about 40,000 hectare and its name indicates many Alerce trees, a slow growing conifer living up to around 3000 years old. Imagine a tree where you need three or four people to make a circle around it and there are thousands of them! Several trails penetrate the forest where you can get o know the other typical native species of Evergreen woods like Coigue, Lenga, Manio, Teneo, Canelo and Tapa, among others. Hikes vary from two to eight hours.

A national reserve of approximately 34,000 ha with difficult access and Volcan Calbuco as its main attraction. This volcano erupted last in March of 1961 and is part of the Andean massif separated from the main range by Lake Chapo. Two trails allow hikers to approach the volcano and explore the evergreen forest typical of this region.

The regional capital with more than 150,000 inhabitants was founded in 1853. This city serves as the gateway between the Lakes District, Chiloe and Patagonia. Between modern buildings traditional shingle houses can be seen. The redwood cathedral on the city's plaza is the city's oldest building. A must see is the fish market of Angelmo where the huge variety of local sea food and fish can be seen.

The main island of the archipelago is 250 kms long, 50 kms wide and covers more than 9000 sq kms. A unique mixture of indigenous, Spanish and German influences is reflected in the islands culture, architecture, religion and daily life. Rolling green landscapes are dotted with colorful fishing villages and agriculture.

On the wild and pristine pacific side of the island sea wildlife gets more and more interesting. Between November and March Humboldt and Magellan Penguins nest together on a small island close to the coast which can be reached by boat. From time to time whales can be seen in the ocean. For those interested in architecture there are more than 70 wooden churches built by the Jesuits in the middle of the last century and are protected by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites.

Half-way to the ferry to get to Chiloe island and connected by a bridge with the continent, peninsula Calbuco was founded in 1602 as a Spanish fortress. Today around 12,000 inhabitants make their living from salmon, seaweed and agriculture. There are beautiful views across the channel to surrounding islands, and a further one hour drive brings you to the endless white beaches of Maullin and Carelmapu; wonderful for long wild walks open to the Pacific Ocean.

Additional options are available for active options.
Golf: Close to Puerto Varas is El Alba 9-hole golf course, perfect for experienced players.
Rafting: 1 1/2 hours on grade 3+ enjoying not only the thrill of the adventure but the beautiful views of Volcano Osorno and the river itself. Not recommended in January due to horseflies. Troublesome, not dangerous.
Sea-Kayaking: From three hours to an entire day according to the expertise of the participants.
Horseback Riding: Chilean horses with excellent Chilean saddles take you up towards Volcan Calbuco. Two hours to a full day excursion.
Trekking: from short hikes to up to full day activities in the surrounding National Parks and reserves.
Skiing: From the end of the July to beginning of September, Volcano Osorno ski center is operating with two ski lifts.
