Queueing up for an hour to get on a cable car did not appeal and we set off to drive round the full extent of the lake. The views of Volcan Osorno and its sister peaks made it a great drive. Given this was our last day in the van before relying on pedal power, we were determined to go large on the food front. We got ...

Now that we're at the end of our cruise, let me rate and summarize the excursions we took:
