PUERTO BLEST



EXCURSION TO PUERTO BLEST, LOS CANTAROS CASCADE AND LAKE FRÍAS
The trip starts at Puerto Pañuelo, on the Llao Llao peninsula and you sail along the narrow and long Blest channel. As from your departure and during the whole trip you will be able to admire a spectacular landscape, including thick cypress and coihue woods covering the hillsides, majestic mountains that surround Nahuel Huapi lake and clear waters from thousand year-old glaciers, duplicating the beauty of the surrounding landscape in their reflection.

The entrance of Blest channel is "guarded" by the Capilla and Millaqueo hills and Centinela Island, the place where the mortal remains of Francisco Pascasio Moreno, the designer of National Parks, are buried. After sailing along the channel for a few minutes you can see the Mellizas Islands (Twin Islands). Very close to this place the maximum depth of the lake has been measured: 464 meters (as known at present). Before getting to Puerto Blest you go past Las Arañas Beach and Blanca Cascade.

After sailing for about an hour, you get to Puerto Cántaros, located on Blest Bay. It is an area of Valdivian Rainforest, one of the rainiest places in the country (3,000 mm annually) producing lush evergreen vegetation, with large trees, such as coihues and larches, alternating with a shorter bush vegetation featuring creepers and lianas. Everything is always humid, so this is a suitable place for the growth of herbs, moss and fungus.

On foot, along an incredibly lush pathway, you get to Los Cántaros lagoon and its waterfall, from which the opposite side of Puerto Blest, the starting point to get to the international Pérez Rosales trail, is visible.

Once in Puerto Blest, you can visit the hostel, with its warm style, and an interesting interpretation center of the area, some meters away from it. At this place it is possible to hear the hushed roar of Frías River, that flows into the lake "dyeing" it emerald green.

If you enjoy walking, you can take an easy-access road, only three kilometers long, that goes to Puerto Alegre. It takes an hour and a half to visit the place and come back, a very worthwhile experience.

From Puerto Alegre you can take "El Caleuche" catamaran and sail along Frías lake to the port of the same name. Frías lake is an unbelievably green color.

An international road to Chile, the neighboring country, starts at this point. Taking the Pérez Rosales trail you can cross the border and arrive at the location of Peulla. From here, you can tour around the Chilean lake region.

Thick woods of lignum vitae and giant larches, some of them estimated to be over 1500 years old, are admired by the tourist throughout the tour. Creepers, ferns and moss are some other inhabitants of the Valdivian Rainforest. This is an incomparable landscape.

Then you get to the Customs, where you take the bus to Peulla. Here you board the catamaran to sail across Todos los Santos lake to Puerto Petrohué; and from that point, you can board the bus to go to Puerto Varas or Puerto Montt.
