OPEN WATER SWIMMING IN CHILE

Lakes District

7 days and 6 nights

Puerto Varas is located at the beginning of the northern Chilean Patagonia, in the Lakes District which includes Llanquihue Lake, Cochamó Valley, Llanada Grande Valley, Chiloé Island and the beginning of the Austral Road to Hornopirén. All this area is composed of extraordinary landscapes, forests, lakes, rivers, sea, volcanoes and fields, as well as rich culture with Huilliches origins, marked by the Spanish arrival in the sixteenth century and by the German colonization in 1850. Puerto Varas is a destination that has two extraordinary conditions:

  • A very good hotel infrastructure, gastronomic options and excellent roads and airports make the city perfect as an operation centre.
  • And at the same time offers more remote places that are still virgin enough to take more direct and intense contact with nature.

The Open Water Swimming Program in Chile is focused on all people who like to learn about local culture, and enjoy sports (especially swimming), local culture, nature and amazing landscapes. We propose a 7-day program with a base in Puerto Varas and Ensenada, to go to different virgin and stunning places for open water SWIMMING.
