Overview Of The Port Of Puerto Montt

About Puerto Montt
Puerto Montt is a port city in southern Chile, South America. It is located at the northern end of the ReloncavĂ­ Sound in the Llanquihue Province, Los Lagos Region.

The Feria Artesanal (Crafts Market) is located to the right of the pier on Coast Road (around 5 minutes away). Baskets, woollens, ponchos, leather goods, carved wood figures and alpaca rugs are all popular buys here.

Head to Pelluco, a quaint oceanside beach village about 2 miles east of Puerto Montt.

Take a scenic trip to Petrohue Falls, which lie at the foot of Volcano Orsono in Vincente Perez Rosales National Park, around an hour from Puerto Montt.

Take a catamaran cruise around Lake Esmeralda, go rafting on Petrohue River or fish for salmon or trout.

Caleta Angelmo, Puerto Montt’s fishing cove, offers a great view of Tenglo Island.

Puerto Varas, about 12 miles northeast of Puerto Montt, is charming and great for walking along the shores of Lake Llanquihue.

Parque Nacional Alerce Andino National Park protects the endangered alerce tree, some are as old as 4,000 years old.

Visit the German colonial village of Frutillar, this small hamlet perfectly preserves the German and Austrian architecture from the immigrants in the late 1800's. The town edges onto Lake Llanquihue and is filled with flowers and timbered chalets.

Fresh seafood and fish including scallops and clams can be found on menus. Try a local Chilean Pisco Sour, made with grape brandy, lemon juice, egg whites and powdered sugar.
Cruise Terminal
Most ships dock at the Public Pier inside of Canal Tenglo. Very large ships must tender to the same pier. It's roughly a 20 minute walk into town.

There are plenty of metered taxis (yellow with a black roof) at the pier. A 'colectivo' taxi works like a mini-bus, following a fixed route and picking up passengers (up to 4) along the way.
