Hi, we would like some advice regarding our plans for the Lakes District this September 6 - 16.
Stay 4 nights in Puerto Varas and do day trips i.e. Chiloe Island,
Petrohue Falls, Lago todos Los Santos, Frutillar either with a local tour company or local buses. Not sure if we are confident enough to hire a car.
Full day lakes crossing to Bariloche, is it cheaper to go by bus half way and then on the lakes if we have done the Lago todos Los Santos cruise already.
2 nights in Bariloche, Any suggestions for our day in Bariloche or should we stay longer?
Bus to Villa la Angostura and San Martin de Los Andes, stay the night then cross back into Chile and stay a couple of nights in Pucon.
Transfer to Temuco to fly back to Santiago.
Would we need to pre-book the lakes crossing or buses at this time of year and also do they run everyday or are we better to book a tour that covers all this area and so would be more organised?
Any advice will be appreciated.
