Volcanoes, Glaciers, and Rich Chiloé Culture

Puerto Montt is an urban oasis surrounded by the breathtaking volcanoes, glacial lakes, and parks for which the Chilean Lake District is known. As the region’s commercial hub, Puerto Montt offers the perfect blend of shopping, sightseeing, and history that elevates any South American cruise itinerary.

Start with a trip to the Angelmo Harbor Market to enjoy the ocean breeze and peruse stalls selling everything from freshly caught fish to rainbow-hued alpaca wool goods sure to keep you warm during those chilly days at sea. For a taste of local flavor, try cancato—a famous Chilean favorite dish made of fish, chorizo, tomato, and cheese. After your meal, take a boat across the Tenglo Channel to Tenglo Island, where you’ll be treated to fantastic views of Osorno—a snow-capped volcano known as one of the most active in all of the southern Chilean Andes.

Once you return to the mainland, make your way through the streets of Puerto Montt and marvel at the city’s unique architectural design. Then visit the Diego Rivera Art House, where you’ll find sculptures, photographs, and other works by acclaimed local artists. Put the finishing touch on your day in Puerto Montt at the museum’s chic in-house café and boutique before it’s time to board the ship for your next South American adventure.
