Start planning your cruise and book your excursions to Puerto Montt

Puerto Montt is a port city in southern Chile, located on the northern shores of the Reloncaví Sound. This MSC World Cruise destination showcases an abundance of natural and man-made wonders including towering volcanoes, lakes and rivers, 20th-century architecture, and dramatic snowy mountains. 
 
MSC Cruises excursions offer plenty of exciting things to see including:
 
• Puerto Montt and Puerto Varas
• Osorno Volcano and Petrohué
• Lahuen Ñadi Natural Monument
 
The port town of Puerto Montt, near the charming inlet of Angelmó, makes for a fabulous MSC Cruises excursion. Explore the Plaza de Armas waterfront, stop by a bronze statue honouring German settlers, and admire Our Lady of Mount Carmel Cathedral. Next, visit the small town of Puerto Varas, affectionately known as the City of Roses. Set on the shores of Lake Llanquihue, this picturesque setting is perfect for photographs. Afterwards, visit the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church and the charming Old Neighbourhood. Take in German-inspired architecture set against the backdrop of the magnificent Osorno Volcano, before strolling along the delightful waterfront.
 
Chile is home to active volcanoes such as the 2,652 metre Osorno. On an MSC Cruises excursion, you’ll venture towards Ensenada to scale this natural wonder, taking in its snowy peaks and dark green slopes. Enjoy stunning views of Mount Calbuco, Lake Llanquihue, and the blue Pacific Ocean. Afterwards, visit the famous Petrohué Waterfalls, where water cascades from crystallised lava.
 
Take an MSC Cruises excursion to the Lahuen Ñadi Natural Monument, a protected area of rainforests featuring gorgeous lakes and ancient trees — some which date back 1,800 years! Wander scenic footpaths to encounter vines, ferns, and mosses, spread out under a shady canopy of great Fitzroya trees.

    Sandwiched between the snowy white peaks of the Andes and the waves of the Pacific Ocean, Chile is the perfect country for outdoor activities and nature lovers thanks to its stunning national parks and reserves, which protect an incredible variety of plants and animals.

    An MSC World Cruise will take you to the very end of this extremely long country – over 4300 km – from Arica, on the Chile- Peru border, to Punta Arenas, on the border between Chile and Argentina, including everything else on the way! 
     
    During a cruise you may not get to see the driest desert in the world – the Atacama desert with its fascinating Valley of the Moon –, the high trails in the Parque Nacional Lauca, all at an altitude of between 4000 and 6000 metres, or the volcanic peaks and verdant landscapes of the Región de Los Lagos (very similar to the European Alps), but you will definitely have the opportunity to enjoy the wilderness of Patagonia and the statues carved by the Rapa Nui on Easter Island. 
     
    An MSC day trip will take you to the capital of Chile, Santiago, which is easily reachable from the colourful port of Valparaiso. The city is located in the country's central valley, near an area that is characterised by its vineyards, for example Colchagua Valley, and ski resorts.
