Puerto Varas lies due west of Bariloche at the edge of Chile's Lake District. It offers a distant view the still active Osorno and Calvuco volcanoes.

The town's distinctive shingled houses are indicative of the areas early German settlements.

Close by is Petrohue' Falls flowing through a unique volcanic landscape, and surrounded by a rain-forest.
