Puerto Montt is a relatively new city in Chilean colonial history. It was founded by German colonists in 1853 and named after Manuel Montt, President of Chile between 1851 and 1861.
The city is located at the northern end of Reloncavi Sound and has a role as the gateway to Patagonia to the south and to Bariloche in Argentina via the spectacular Lake District.
Puerto Mont has prospered due to salmon fishing with Chile as one of the largest salmon producers in the world.
The harbour area is the best place to visit. The covered Fish Market has some interesting produce and there are restaurants and crafts markets as well.

If time and money permits, take a short flight down to Puerto Montt. From there you can take a tour by bus and boat across to Argentina. We went only half-way and returned to Puerto Montt the same day.
