Cruce Andino invites you to follow the route that more than 400 years ago the Huilliches, the natives of Southern Chile, used as a commercial route, Now, after four centuries of history, we invite you to "Sail along the Andes Range" from Bariloche In Argentina to Puerto Varas in Chile through the Andean Lakes and Volcanoes, an area that shows an example of how nature has preserved and will continue preserving this veritable paradise on earth. The scenery is stunning lakes and Volcanoes on route. This tour operates the opposite way as well.
Today you leave your hotel and travel along Lake Nahuel Huapi, passing the beautiful Swiss style houses with their colourful gardens to Panuelo Port where you take a catamaran for a sail on the lake. Sail on to Puerto Blest admiring the splendour of the Tronador mountain which has nine glaciers on its summit. Then enter the Perez Rosales national park and cross the border into Chile and check into your hotel.
The morning is free for you to enjoy one of a number of excursions before going sailing on Lake Todos los Santos where you get spectacular views of the Osorno Volcano. Continue to Puerto Varas then Puerto Montt with a visit to the Falls of Petrohue on the way where the rugged shapes of volcanic rock are bathed in green waters. Your tour ends in Puerto Montt or Puerto Varas where you will be taken to your hotel for your stay.
