Lake District Chile
The further south you go in Chile, the greener it gets, until you find snow-bound volcanoes rising over verdant hills and lakes. This bucolic region makes a great escape to a slower pace. The Araucanía, named for the monkey-puzzle tree, is the center of Mapuche culture. Colonized by Germans in the 1850s, the area further south is a provincial enclave of stocking-clad grannies, küchen (cake) and lace curtains. So perfectly laid-back, you’ll start to feel a little sueño (sleepy). Don’t. Outside your shingled dwelling tens of adventures wait: from rafting to climbing, from hiking to hot-springs hopping, from taking onces in colonial towns to sipping mate with the local huasos. Hospitality is the strong suit of sureños (southerners), take time to enjoy it.
