Puerto Montt

Hi, I have 3 nights in Puerto Montt, can anyone suggest activities for the 3 nights, i.e., is there any 1 day boat tours near the glaziers that can be done as I don't have the time to go all the way down the cost.

Thanks
Graeme

Hi I am posting a reply however I am interested too in the answer because we will be there soon. So I am telling you what I have researched.
If I were you I would take the lake crossing to Bariloche, you can do it in one day or in two days staying in a hotel in half way (in Chile) The great thing about it, is that is not expensive
$160 dollars one way and you can take a bus back for $20, but what people do not realize that the crossing in itself is a woderful sightseeing experiece, lakes, volcanos, water falls , islands.
You stop for lunch. and I guess there must be other stops too.
We are looking forward to go. We will be there early December. We shall be coming the other way from Bariloche and once in Puerto Montt we are planing to take a tour to the Isla Chiloe. That is another option for you. But I honestly believe that the Lake crossing will be fantastic. Let me know if you do it, if you like it. Thank you.

Hi scotwid and Graziella5b did you do the Lake Crossing? I did it last month and thought it was great. I was amazed with the panoramic views and the beautiful lakes and volcanos and greenery along the way.
How did you like it ?
