They served as motors for harvesting- and other agricultural machines in the beginning of the 20th century. Along the river Imperial and across the coastal mountains, we cross the Moncul river to a sandbank with a nice beach. We pass through the small fisher-town Puerto Saavedra, walk a little bit on the black sandy beach, close to Boca Budi and taste some seafood or fish. Only people, who don’t mind the chilly water will have a swim in the pacific. Crossing the peninsula Huapi, we may see many black-necked swans on the lake Budi. We return on the other side of the river Imperial, pass through Padre las Casas, and have dinner at Adela y Helmut.
Via Villarica we reach the lake Calafquén and following the shore to Coñaripe. Leaving the asphalted road, we wind us up a narrow road between forests and rocks, until we reach the thermal-springs. Here we find some wooden houses with grass covered roofs and numerous clean thermal pools, built directly in the rocks. The whole complex is developed by wooden footbridges, over a river. An unforgettable experience. Before we head back, we eat our snack. A quick city tour shows us Villarrica's markets. Adela awaits us for dinner
It’s a longer ride through the UNESCO Geopark Kütralkura, but the impressive views make it worth doing it. It’s described by many travel guides.
