P U E R T O O C T A Y is one of the least visited towns in Lake District Chile. It has the most German influence with very little amenities for tourists. The town is small and most of the old German houses are uniquely built with wood.The drive to Puerto Octay is the most picturesque of the area. The winding road takes you through farms, sheep, cows and a beautiful aerial view of the lakes and the surrounding towns. All types of cheese and yogurt are found in a corner store in Puerto Octay’s town center. The cheeses are cheaper than those sold in Puerto Varas.If you are in Puerto Octay, remember to visit Octay Lacteos the biggest cheese shop in the town, just across from the town square. Puerto Octay is still non-touristy and offers visitors a look into the locals’ lifestyle in Lake District Chile.

REVIEW OF KARYN SCANLAN 25 FEB 2013: My visit with Juan to Puerto Montt and the surrounding districts was fantastic and a highlight of my recent South America cruise. Juan tailored a tour to accommodate my limited mobility and his tour exceeded my expectations. Juan’s local and expert knowledge combined with his warm and friendly personality ensured I enjoyed a comprehensive overview of this amazing region. I would highly recommend his professional guiding service. Karyn Scanlan, Australia.
