Day 4: Pichillancahue Glacier and Hot Springs Hike

  Today you will leave Pucón and take a break from the bike. After a van transfer to the National Park Villarrica, we arrive at the Pichi Llancahue Glacier trail. Make sure your shoes are laced tightly, as you will hike to a phenomenal glacier, completely covered by the volcanic ash from the Villarrica volcano. After hiking 30 minutes you’ll enjoy the stunning views of four volcanoes: Lanin, Quetrupillán, Villarrica and Mocho-Choshuenco. The vegetation changes from raulí (Nothofagus alpina) and hualle forests (Nothofagus oblicua) to gigantic thousand-year old araucarias. After the hike, relax your muscles at the Geometricas Hot Springs, which offers the perfect combination of thermal facilities and natural surroundings. Termas Geometricas has 16 strategically located thermal pools, ensuring that you will never feel overcrowded. As you relax in the hot springs, enjoy views of the vast landscape. Once you are rejuvenated, you will be transferred to the Huilo Huilo Biological Reserve, where you'll have a delicious dinner. Overnight at the incredible lake-front hotel Marina del Fuy.

Day 5: Huilo-Huilo Bio Reserve, Rafting and Hiking

Today you will explore the Huilo-Huilo Biological Reserve. Start the day with a whitewater rafting excursion down the clear, blue-green waters of the Fuy River. You'll raft the section called "bridge to bridge," which will take about an hour. The warm, clear waters come out of Lago Pirehueico, deep in the heart of Chile’s Lake District. The Fuy’s astonishing clarity is a sight to behold. With a dense canopy of coihue trees overhanging its banks, the river has an exotic, even ethereal, feel to it. The lower section is a 4km-long, mostly class 3 wave train. After rafting, you'll eat lunch at Peterman's, a local microbrewery. Next you'll have the choice of a hike in the temperate rain forest or relaxing at the hotel and enjoying the lake views. The hike follows the Magnetic Stones trail (3-hour hike, moderate difficulty). The highlights of the hike include a botanical forest, scenic clear-water lagoons, mighty waterfalls, and amazing views of snow-capped volcanoes. If you would like to learn about the reserve’s plants and wildlife, there are nature walks that focus on botany, bird watching, and geology, as well as flora and fauna interpretation. Later you can relax at your lake-front hotel and then get ready for tonight’s dinner. Accommodation: Marina Del Fuy Hotel Meals: B,L,D

Day 8: German Settlers Route Ride

Today starts with a transfer from your hotel in Futangue to Puerto Octay village where today's bike ride begins. Here you will start your ride towards quaint villages with a strong German heritage. The route consists of rolling hills with some flat stretches until you end the ride by the beach of Lake Llanquihue, where a unique landscape is waiting: the Osorno Volcano with its perfect cone. You will enjoy an incredible buffet lunch in a German-style family-owned restaurant and then resume cycling towards the village of Frutillar, famous for the world-class classical concerts that take place in the Teatro del Lago. During this ride, you will have views of four volcanoes (Osorno, Puntiagudo, Casablanca and Puyehue). With the lake on one side, green pastures and fields on the other, and the snow-capped Andes in the distance, this will be a picturesque day. You'll end the ride in the village of Llanquihue and enjoy a well-deserved local beer. After you have quenched your thirst, you'll be transferred to the five-star Cumbres Patagonicas hotel and spa in Puerto Varas. Tonight is the farewell dinner at a truly unique restaurant where you will sample traditional Chilean dishes and flavors prepared in tapas style with wine pairings.
