In July of 2001 the construction of the route 69 between Puelo and Caleta Puelche has been finished opening thus the path for a roundtrip around the Reloncaví Estuary. Starting from Puerto Montt go towards Puerto Varas to take the route 225 bordering the southern shore of Llanquihue Lake until the beautiful village of Ensenada. After Ensenada take route 69 to Ralún where the single track bordering Reloncaví Estuary starts. The dusty single track to Puelo will lead you along Reloncavi Fjord deeply carved into the pre-andean hills which forms thus a unique landscape of sea and forested mountains. Having good weather you can sea the snow-dripped peaks of Yates volcano already from Cochamó. In Puelo starts the new part of the track passing by almost untouched landscapes. In Caleta Puelche take the ferry to Caleta la Arena, from where you get back in about one hour to Puerto Montt. The tour is about 290 km long and can be made in one day. You can complement this trip by an additional visit to the wonderful Tagua Tagua lake following the track from Puelo about 12 km towards the mountains.
