Afterwards, we will carry on towards the north until reaching our last destination, Puerto Octay, a small German village built in 1857, whose untouched style is the vivid reminder of the times in which, because of the lack of roads, the inhabitants of the age had to navigate for five hours to Puerto Varas.
