This hike will take us to different parts of the Vicente Pérez Rosales National Park. We will begin by taking a chairlift up the Osorno Volcano to a height of 1,670 meters above sea level, where we will see the impressive Lake Llanquihue, Chile’s second largest lake, as well as the peak of the Calbuco Volcano, and the Reloncaví Sound. 

We have two options for our descent; we can hike down along the El Solitario Trail through secondary forests or we can visit the beautiful Laguna Verde and walk along its short interpretive trails. Next we stop for lunch, either at the hotel or in a spot hidden among nature on the banks of the Petrohué River, and then continue on to our next destination, one of the region’s touristic icons, Saltos de Petrohué—small turquoise-colored falls formed by centuries of erosion from the Petrohué River flowing over solidified lava. 

This beautiful spot also provides impressive views of the Osorno and Puntiagudo Volcanoes and the imposing 3,491-meter Mt. Tronador, the highest peak in the southern Andes. The journey ends in a sector called Petrohué, where the river ends and we can see the Todos los Santos Lake with its glittering emerald-colored waters, immersed in the Andes Mountains.
