White Volcanos of Puerto Varas
Track: Loncoche to Puerto Varas, Chile
Puerto Varas is such a lovely town, with breathtaking views of the lake and the volcano from the hotel room. It was a nice Lazy Sunday with a twist. New information acquired meant: on to Google Earth to re-plan a major part of our trip.
Meanwhile, thinking out of the box: photography gear can help out as an essential part to get laundry done. How? Well....
Day in Key Statistics
262 km - distance covered
98 km/h average speed in 2.40 hours motion time
One crucial Tourist Office visit - meaning we spend the evening re-planning the upcoming week of our trip.
Due to a tragic mud-slide at the village of Santa Lucia mid-December 2017, that part of the road is still blocked.
The alternative is a ferry, for which the waiting list is several days. Alfajores (our favourite Argentinean cookie) here we come!! We need to re-route through Argentina.
Fun Fact - Good to Know...
The volcano Osorno has a height of 2661 km above sea level. Wiki says the last eruption was in the year 1869, so we can sleep without any worry!
Highlights of the day
The hotel room has the most perfect view of the vulcanos - waking up, we will see the famous volcano Osorno. Wow!
Sleeping in, with a nice morning walk in village Loncoche - where on Sunday morning apart from some dogs, everyone seemed to still be sleeping. Lovely laid-back atmosphere!
Travelling means pilling up laundry to be done. The tripods came in quite handy!
Gourmet dinner a la Cissy a La Cama: Lays Classic, Taco Chips in Xmas green and red colours, dip from a glass jar bought in Bolivia: Cheddar-Jalapeno. It was So Chemical, we needed to throw it away with the label ‘Toxic Waste’. It was seriously uneatable. Long Fingers Biscuits as dessert. Note to self: maybe tomorrow go out for a proper dinner.
