Puerto Montt to Bariloche and back

by jffh

I'll be in Puerto Montt for several days before heading to Punta
Arenas. The cruise to Bariloche looks interesting but getting from
Bariloche to Punta Arenas looks like a pricey pita. I was considering
taking the cruise one way and the bus back to Puerto Montt.
Any opinions, advice?
Thanks in Advance, Jeff

No reason why you shouldn't do it. The bus/boat crossing (not really a cruise) takes a very full day, usually 12 hours from hotel to hotel, so you really want to take a break in Bariloche for a day or two at least. You can take the lake crossing from Puerto Varas as well, smaller and nicer than PM. See if you can get your return bus ticket from Bariloche in Puerto Montt before you go, or buy it when you arrive in Bariloche. The trip back by bus is usually about 5 hours to Osorno but can take much longer in summer with so many people using that pass.

the question is: how do you plan to get to punta arenas? are you flying or taking a boat from puerto montt? if so, then your plan is a good one. but if you are planning to arrive to punta arenas by road, you have to go via argentina no matter what as there are no roads in chile. so you might as well head south from bariloche.

Nuestros bosques

En esta region los bosque se denominan siempreverde. De aspecto similar a los bosques tropicale sposeen menos variedad de especies. Se supone que coresponden a bosques relictos de la ultima glaciacion que amparados por un clima templado aun sobreviven. Son muy hermosos. Se puede caminar en ellos sin peligro a animales venenosos. Son extremadamente humedos.

a half-pipe in Puerto Montt

by globetrott

I was quite surprised to see this half-pipe right in the centre of Puerto Montt, it might be a great place for your kids, while you are taking a closer look at the ancient steam-locomotives that are just a few meters from this place.

See a volcano up close

by patagoniapaul

Volcano Calbuco is a very active volcano close to Puerto Montt. In 1893 it exploded and blew it's top away in the largest volcanic eruption in Chile in living memory. It still erupts every now and then. It is a beautiful mountain located in the Parque Nacional Llanquihue. A 40km drive will take you to the beginning of a footpath that ultimately goes all the way to the top of the mountan. Do not attempt this without a local guide!

The trip to the lookout, though, is a nice hike and requires no guide. It does require a moderate level of fitness as one has to scramble up some steep rocks along the way but it is not very difficult or dangerous.

The view from the lookout point (Esp=Mirador) is lovely and worth every drop of sweat!

From the mirador the footpath goes into the forest and there are no views of the volcano. It also deteriorates into a muddy wet path. I recommend that this part be avoided.

It takes about one and a half to two hours to reach the mirador.
