Puerto Varas

Posted 9 months ago in Puerto Varas, Chile

We decided to leave Viña del Mar for one last "adventurous" trip at the end of our year away - it seemed like a pity to be so close to the wilderness in Chile and not visit.

In the end it probably wasn't worth the hassle of up-rooting the kids, packing all our stuff, and taking yet another flight. While Puerto Varas was nice, it was a long drive from the interesting hiking, so we spent a lot fo time in the car. And the weather was so fickle that we ended up drenched in freezing rain more than once.

But as always we managed to have a fun time, and the girls loved walking up their first volcano and stamping in the snow at the top.

We had to pop back in to Santiago for a few nights before flying home, and we managed to have a great final meal to celebrate the end of our adventures. Overall it was a fun way to finish our year overseas!
