      We are taking a cruise to South America in end Dec. The first stop is at Puerto Montt. Instead of joining the Shore Excursion program offered by the cruise line, we would like travel on our own for greater flexibility and seeing more. From 8:00- 17:00, is it possible to tour around Frutillar and Puerto Varas on our own by local transport?

    • what to do in puerto montt

      by bean4bean4 Online Now Jan 19, 2009 at 11:00 AM

      I,ll be in Puerto Montt on Feb 3 for 8 hours.

      I'm hesitating between:

      - osorno volcano and petrohue falls
      -puerto varas, frutillar and a view of osorno and lake lianquihue
      -petrohue falls and the lake district
      - save some time to visit the city

      I'm interested with the volcano, but considering that if I choose this tour I won't have time to do anything else, is it a good choice?

      if instead I choose to go to Chiloe, would it be feasible to do it in the time frame available?

We also looked into the bus ( but we are unable to figure out the time table (where is Puerto Montt listed as a departure point, what is the name of the bus terminal in Puerto Montt). We also looked into the possibility of flying via LAN Chile, but they do not offer a flight on either of the days we can go (March 11th, 12th). We are even interested if we can arrange a private flight from Puerto Montt to Bariloche. Any help would be appreciated (websites, names/phone numbers, Tourism contacts, travel agent contacts, etc).
