During our most recent visit to South America, we had a fantastic day trip from Puerto Montt into the stunning Chilean Lake District. In addition to our tour guide, Patty, our constant companion for the day was the Osorno volcano (Volcán Osorno).
Four characteristics of Osorno volcano really captured our imagination. The first was its amazing symmetry.
The fourth was that it’s still active, a fact brought into sharp focus by the spectacular eruption of the neighbouring Calbuco volcano less than ten months before our visit. (What I wouldn’t have given to have witnessed that!)
Over the course of the day we saw Volcán Osorno across the pristine waters of Lake Llanquihue…
…And up close and personal, climbing to within a stone’s throw of its glaciers.
Many thanks to Denis Purtov of Puerto Montt Excursions for arranging our unforgettable day.
