Saturday - Yan Kee Way Lodge - Boat Trip & Wine Tasting and Dinner

You will be greeted in the Puerto Montt Airport.  Transfer to Yan Kee Way Lodge, accommodation in Bungalows or Chalets, welcome cocktail and lunch in our Latitude 42 Restaurant.  At 4:00 p.m. we depart our beach in a boat for a cruise on Lake Llanquihue, which is the third largest natural lake in South America.  Small towns, many of which incorporate the word “Puerto” in their names, surround it.  Puerto Varas, founded in 1854 by German colonists in their efforts to colonize this beautiful, verdant but forest covered land.  In the years thereafter, additional small towns sprung up around natural ports, using the lake as the only means of transportation in the area.  Yan Kee Way Lodge is located in the South East corner of the Lake, in a small bay or “ensenada” which was once the port of Ensenada, and now is a small village with the same name.  Our Lodge location is unique; perhaps the only place in the world like it. Volcano Osorno terminates at the waters’ edge, forming the North Eastern shoreline of the bay. It is one of, it not the only, places in the world where one can see a volcano in a stand alone setting.  The most similar comparisons are Fuji in Japan and Mt. Rainier in Washington State.  Unlike other volcanoes, Osorno is not lost amidst a surrounding mountain range.  One can see precisely where this 8,730-foot volcano begins and ends.  Our expedition departs from the beach in front of Yan Kee Way lodge.  We will have the opportunity to appreciate the scale of the lake and its surroundings.  It’s easy to imagine what the early day colonists must have felt in their small boats as we look at the wooded shore line and contemplate their thoughts as they moved across the expanse of this lake using oars, the wind and, finally, steam for propulsion.  We will enjoy a pleasant trip along the shore of the Lake, were we will see beautiful landscapes near the impressive cone of Osorno Volcano.  The lush native vegetation covers the many lava fingers that fan out, reaching out into the lake, creating, a series of small coves along the shoreline.  Depending on the day and the season you will spot local wild life along the wooded shoreline.  The waters are clean and clear. One may see through the water, to depths of over 30 feet, to the lake bottom.  During the fall, you may have the opportunity to spot salmon and trout that use the fine bottom sands and underwater springs for their spawning grounds.  We will return to Yan Kee Way in time for our 7:00 p.m. Wine Tasting and dinner.  Enjoy the facilities of our spa before retiring for the night.

Sunday - Yan Kee Way Lodge activities & return to Airport

Breakfast.  Free day to enjoy the beautiful landscape, take photographs or walk along the beach.  If you prefer to be indoors, you may watch TV (satellite), listen to music, read a good book, play board games in our lounge or enjoy the facilities of our spa.  This may be an excellent opportunity to take an excursion or visit tourist attractions that you haven’t yet seen.  Transfer to El Tepual airport.
