Chile Pucon - Villarrica (Nearest Airport: Temuco)
Experiencechile.org can arrange either self-drive itineraries in this area including hotel selection to your budget and preferred style choice, private transfers to each hotel and excursions.

Located 790km south of Santiago and 112km from Temuco, these two towns straddle Lake Villarrica and are dwarfed by the active, snow-capped Villarrica Volcano. Villarrica lake is the most northern lake of significance in the Chilean lake chain effectively marking the start of the Chilean Lake Region coming from the north.
 
Pucon has developed into a "boutique" lake-side village and a very popular place during the summer break months of January and February. The area to the east of the lake is spectacular. The lake itself is bordered by rolling hills that rise up into mountainous terrain on the north-eastern quarter, and by the magnificent conical, snow-capped and active Villarrica Volcano on the southern side.
 
Both the villages offer a great base from which to explore the area, although Pucon is considered to be the principal village and certainly more lively than Villarrica. Pucon offers a number of good restaurants, lively bars and outdoor activity shops. This zone is a haven for those who like outdoor pursuits such as: white water rafting, climbs to the top of the volcano, hikes into the national park, mountain biking, skiing in winter, fishing and boating; and for those who prefer a slower pace there is golf, walking and hot springs to unwind in! You can participate in as many or few of the activities available or just sit back and read a good book!
