Cruce de Lagos

Before I left to come south my host mom told me a millon times that I had to go to Lago Todos los Santos. When I arrived I found out that the only way to go there is on a tour bus, and there's only one company that has a boat to cross the lake. Since I had been told to go I bought into the monopoly and purchased a day excursion (for details see the review). Unfortunately it was very cloudy and rainy the whole trip, which didn't lead to great views. I could definitely tell that when it's clear it would be spectacular. The lake is surrounded by 3 volcanoes and tons of mountains, which is a setting very different from any place I've travelled before.
After crossing the lake the boat arrived in Peulla, which is a town that exists for the tourists that come from Puerto Montt/Puerto Varas, cross the lake and either return or go on to Bariloche. We spent about 4 hour in Peulla during which time I hiked the small trails they had made to entertain passengers for the few hours they spend in Peulla. When 4 pm came I was quite happy to get back on the boat and go back to Puerto Varas.
