Departure from Puerto Varas on a 50 km (31 mi) drive to Ensenada and Petrohue, bordering Llanquihue Lake. On the way, some imposing views of the Osorno and Calbuco Volcanoes dominate the landscape. Once arriving to Vicente Perez National Park, the Petrohue Falls are visited. They consist of whimsical shapes of volcanic rock bathed by turquoise green waterfalls. The route continues to the pretty ecological village of Peulla sailing across the Todos los Santos Lake. Weather permitting, lovely views of the Osorno and Puntiagudo Volcanos and Mount Tronador will surprise travellers.  Arrival to Peulla, a nature lovers’ paradise. To start out on the Andean Crossing, passengers board a bus heading to Puerto Frias after going through customs on the Chilean side, crossing the Andes Mountain Range at 976 meters above sea level (3,202 ft.) After reaching Puerto Frias, a cruise on Felix Frias Lake follows, leading to Puerto Alegre. From here, a bus ride to Puerto Blest comes next. The last sailing experience of the tour will be on Nahuel Huapi Lake to get to Puerto Pañuelo. Here, the last leg of the journey leads to Bariloche, an Argentinean city that fascinates tourists both in winter and summer for its ski resorts, shopping, hotels, restaurants and nightlife. Arrival to Bariloche and end of tour.
