For over 98 years it has been one of the most important trips in Chile, showing people the natural beauty of southern Chile and Argentina with a crossing between Puerto Varas (Chile) and Bariloche (Argentina).

The Andean Crossing© originated in 1913 with Ricardo Roth, who began taking European tourists over the mountain range on unknown routes.
