The Andean crossing is the natural route that connects Puerto Varas with Bariloche. A trip that includes the best landscapes of forests, lakes and volcanoes. An experience to repeat over and over again.

This is where historical people went looking for new routes. First it was the Aborigines that opened the doors to a possible cross between two countries. Then came the Jesuits who came from the Island of Chiloe seeking to bring their beliefs to a territory virtually uninhabited. They walked endlessly, up and down thick hills with vegetation. Enchanted by their beauty they began to explore possible new routes ... until the German settlers arrived with the desire to industrialize and to grow the commerce in both countries.

Today, hundreds of tourists are planning their vacations that include a stay in Puerto Varas to visit Lake Llanquihue, Frutillar, Chiloé Island and then cross to Bariloche.

The Andean Crossing considers 180 kilometers of pure nature that mixes vegetation, lakes and roads that cross the Andes mountain range being its most outstanding gems the Lake Todos los Santos (Chile) and Lake Nahuel Huapi (Argentina) with its impressive turquoise colors.

The road is lost in the Andes mountain range. Navigations, panoramic views and even adventure activities can be done. Some say it is a trip inside another trip ... An almost infinite destination among forests of coigües, ulmos, olivillos, lakes and volcanoes.
