And the best way to link both sides of the lakes district is the Lakes Crossing. Going from Puerto Varas to Bariloche, or vice versa, you can visit both sides and enjoy a unique experience crossing the Andes… by the lake!
And the Lakes Crossing can be done in two ways. You can take a full day trip, starting early in the morning and arriving late in the afternoon to the other side; or choose a 2-day trip and overnight in Peulla, located in the middle of the route, to have some free time and enjoy many activities available there, like trekkings, biking, or just relax and watch the landscape which is wonderful.
