Lake Crossing:Chile-Argentina.
The story begins in 1913 when a group of tourists led by Ricardo Roth crossed the Andes Mountains along a route joining Peulla in the Chilean side with Bariloche in Argentina. Linking these two countries, CRUCE DE LAGOS® is born as an ecological adventure not to be missed.

Nowadays, it is an association of Chilean and Argentinian companies which together have a marketing office that promotes CRUCE DE LAGOS®, Lake crossing all over the world and helps tour operators to sell the product.

Cruces de Lagos (Lake Cruises) offer 2 days cruises between Puerto Varas and San Carlos de Bariloche, the best way to see one of the most picturesque areas in the World.
