An Adrenaline Boost: 14 Canopy Platforms You are adventurous and you like to be overwhelmed with adrenalin? If taking a canopy ride 40 meters above the grounds sounds interesting enough for you, then keep reading. Jumping board for this tour is Puerto Montt, the capital of the Lakes District. Since the canopy platform is connected with the port with about 2 hour drive, this trip can be a good option for a shore excursion. This area is one of the most spectacular in Chile where beautiful lakes and dozens of active volcanoes dominate the landscape. The tour continues through the wild beauty of Chile’s Lake District, viewing the charming city of Puerto Varas, Lake Llanquihue, South America’s second-largest lake, and the impressive view of the snow-capped Osorno Volcano ( if the weather permits ). Driving along the shore side and past the village of Ensenada in order to arrive at the Vicente Perez Rosales national park where on the slopes of Osorno Volcano, overlooking Lake Llanquihue is Canopy center, a big resort of 500 acres providing a fantastic landscape view and a great spot for taking pictures. Feel free like a bird and fly over the 3 miles long vale. If you are wondering about the safety precautions, this activity is perfectly safe as it is supported by the steel cables and you will be provided with professional equipment. The trees are very thick and you will be approximately 40 meters above the ground. The maximum speed one can make is 45 km per hour. The 3-miles long structure and 14 Canopy platforms are placed firmly in the high treetops; they are linked together by steel cables. Visitors will be provided with the highest quality harness, specially designed for professional climbing. The adrenaline, the beautiful scenery of Lake Llanquihue, Osorno Volcano, birds, butterflies and some wild animal, are generally part of this exciting activity, suitable for all ages. If there are good conditions, a stop will be made at a local handicraft market to buy some souvenirs. Snack option available at additional cost. We recommend that guests wear warm layered clothing in order to fully enjoy and participate in this excursion, a rain coat, comfortable walking shoes, a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen are also recommended.
