The 10 Best Things to Do in Puerto Montt, Chile

November 11, 2017 Brandee Mangan

Established by German immigrants in 1853, this is now the key port, transit and business hub of the Lakes District – a good place to replenish supplies, pick up Chilean crafts and get an urban jolt before moving on to more pristine pastures. If you're in the mood to sample some of the famous local salmon, the Angelmo harbor market should be your first stop. From there, it's a short boat ride across to Tenglo Island for views of snow-capped volcanic peaks. Santiago is a two-hour flight away.

Volcan Osorno

Snow-capped and shaped like a perfect cone, this striking volcano overlooks a beautiful lake.

Reviewed By ACL3112 - UK

It's a great drive (windy and steep) but the views are well worth it. We did no get to the top, we just enjoyed the environment of the National Park. You get a great view of the volcano from Puerto Montt on a clear day.
The town does not offer a great deal, we thought it looked a bit dilapidated - it really i just a gateway to the wonderful country side.

This subtle park holds no thrills but a water shed for ecology and enology. Rapids, falls and lakes of crystal clear water remind us that civilization can be curbed from taking over nature. Walks into the woods allow a peaceful respite from the city.

Seno de Reloncavi

Reviewed By Robert S - Santiago, Chile

Large protected bay with snow-capped volcanoes in the distance. Water relatively mild for swimming. Only visual drawback is Puerto Montt, which despite its terraced setting has grown too large and unattractivebut doesn't impact the overall setting and the shellfish are to die for.

Parque Aiken del Sur

Reviewed By Craig-World-Travelle - Agoura Hills, California

We hiked to the falls on a very easy, well maintained and well marked interpretive trail. Signs point out the flora and fauna of the area. Along the way you can see several types of birds including the Huet-huet. The trail takes you to the falls which is the highlight of the hike. From the falls you can walk to the restaurant where they cook lamb over an open fire in traditional style. They also do traditional dances.
The area is very lush and beautiful. Wish we could have spent a longer time here.

We were greeted by the nicest person (Lio). Obviously loves to educate people as to the environment and the raising of animals. It was a very enjoyable day spent walking trails along a stream, through Forests and flowers. Another path led to the paddocks of many farm animals and pets. There were goats, sheep, horses, chickens, ducks, rabbits, birds and many more. You can touch feed and mix with most if not all of the animals. The kids as well as the adults, like myself, loved having the interaction with the animals. It just makes for a very enjoyable experience. A day well spent.

Patagonia Trout Adventures is a first class operation made up of world class trout guides in Nick, Kris and Greg, an extraordinary chef, Carolina, wonderful accommodations and incredible access to phenomenal pristine trout water! All details of our trip were extremely well planned and comunicated from travel into Chile to travel out. The fishing was spectacular on amazingly beautiful and pristine rivers and streams with literally no other fisherman in sight. The incredible fishing was accompanied by a stay in a rustic, comfortable lodge with modern amenities offering incredible views and the warmth of lodge owners Benjamin and Elise. Throughout our stay, Chef Carolina delighted our senses with incredibly prepared locally sourced meals that rivaled the beauty of the landscape and the amazing fishing experience. One of the things I found most enjoyable was their focus on local traditions and customs which elevated the overall enjoyment of the journey for me! You will learn how to properly pass the mate!
The fishing program was truly awesome and unique as we visited three rivers in three separate drainages. Nick, Kris and Greg are the nucleus of the team and have extensive and intimate knowledge of these waters. One of the highlights of our trip was a two day overnight experience at a private cabin with comfortable beds, full kitchen and bath with hot water and a shower. It also had a fire pit and wood fired hot tub for the most incredible star gazing imaginable! Classic way to ease the shoulder after a day of chucking streamers to big trout relaxing under the watchful eye of Orion and the Southern Cross! Overall, this is a great team, adventure and experience that I could not recommend more highly!

Laguna Verde

Reviewed By GrumpsDC - Cheltenham, United Kingdom

We were taken here by our guide after visiting Volcan Osorno. The lagoon is interesting in itself but our walk through the adjoining forest (where there were a lot less people) during which she pointed out a lot of local nature was a lot more so.
