Hotel Cumbres Patagonicas
Travel Blogs from Puerto Varas
On the first night in Puerto Varas, as we were sitting in the cosy hotel lounge, in front of the roaring fire, happily tucked up in huge arm chairs with llama wool blankets, tucking into a huge platter of local salmon and German-style cold cuts, sampling the local wines and being the backing singers for a local guitarist singing a lot of Cat …
Apparently there are 2000 volcanos in Chile. My favourite volcano by far is Osorno (active), white capped and pyramid shaped it is visible directly across the lake from our hotel bedroom. We're very lucky, it transpires, as both today & yesterday have been glorious. Blue skies, sunshine and best of all wonderfully clear views of the lake and …
We are now in chilly Chile and it has hardly stopped raining since we crossed the border 5 days ago. Good weather to write a blog so I will catch up with our recent activities.
