Andes Lake Crossing - Bariloche to Puerto Varas

Jump to last reply

I hate to keep bothering all of you but I have yet another question. I have read a lot about the Andes Crossing but am confused. The tour company that does the trip has an itinerary for one day and two day. I prefer doing a one day trip but would like clarification on that. From what I gathered from their website, if you do the 2 day trip, you get off the boat in the afternoon then pick it up the next day at the same time. Is that correct? It would seem the only advantage in doing that is walking around and hiking in the area.

Does the boat going from Bariloche end up in Puerto Varas or Puerto Montt? The boat tour company itinerary shows it as "Puerto Varas-Puerto Montt". We are flying out from the Puerto Montt airport in the morning. How hard is it to get transportation from the boat dock to a hotel after the boat lands? I worry about getting a hotel close to the boat dock but then we have to get to the airport in the AM? Maybe I am stresing over minutes here and the distances are close. I have a map but distances in Argentina and Chile are deceptive and driving times seem to be way longer than miles.

And Happy 4th of July to those Americans out there reading this.
