In Out Patagonia, 1 day, tourism buses, ferry and boat, US$ 295
Since December 2008 In Out Patagonia offers this trip called "Travesía Navegando Chile Argentina", joining the two important touristic centers of Pucón (Chile) and San Martín de los Andes (Argentina) through the Hua-Hum Pass. The first part of the trip is done with tourism buses, and then by boat through the attractive lakes Pirihueico, Nonthué and Lacar.
The passengers who would like to come back to Pucón can choose a program that includes an overnight accommodation in San Martín and taking the next day the route back to Pucón through the Tromen / Mamuil Malal Pass, at the foot of the Lanín Volcano.
Due to logistics reasons, the trip through the lakes can only be made in the direction described above, from Pucón to San Martín, but not the opposite way.

The departure is at 08:00 AM from Pucón by bus or minibus riding along the lakes Villarrica, Calafquén and Panguipulli before we arrive in Puerto Fuy around noon. There is enough time for an optional lunch (not included in the price) before taking the ferry that sails during one and a half hour through the narrow Pirihueico lake. Afterwards, there is a short part by bus to the Hua-Hum Pass, arriving first to the Chilean Customs and then, the Argentinean. Once the paperwork is done at the border, we continue towards the pier Chachín to get on board of the boat Patagonia I, which will navigate for 2 hours the lakes Nonthué and Lacar. The journey ends at the harbour of San Martín de los Andes at around 19:00 PM.
