Parque National Vicente Perez Rosales clearly is a world treasure. With crystal clear rapids and sparkling lakes, the area is a must see for another in the Lake region of Chile. Driving around the various lakes to get to the park can take some time, but definitely enjoy the scenery along the way. The architecture blends beautifully with the natural environment, and you'll feel like you're in Europe most of the time. The volcano dominates the landscape and if you have clouds...have patience! Clouds generally burn off in the afternoon.

The park protects the body of Todos los Santos Lake and a large part of its catchment. The outlet of the lake at the Petrohué locality gives rise to the Petrohué River. A short distance downstream, still within the limits of the Park, the Petrohué river flows through the Petrohue Waterfalls.
We did a quite enjoyable cruise on Todos los Santos Lake, followed by a tour of the waterfalls. Petrohué Waterfalls is a chute-type waterfall in the upper reach of Petrohué River in Chile, a short distance downstream of the source of this river in Todos los Santos Lake. However, from the ground they seem more like rapids than waterfalls. That said, this is a beautiful place to visit on a nice, sunny day. There are a few other trails to walk but there was not all that much to see on the parts that I walked.

We trekked the to the Desolacion Sendar (trail) to a view point, a good climb (3.1 km @ 35 - 40 degree incline) that was an incredible view of the lake and Mt Osorno. The trail starts with an easy 1.5 hr hike on soft sand, Sendero Los Alerzales then to Desolacion. We had lunch at the view point then returned to Petrohue via the lake. That also was wonderful to bathe our feet and just contemplate the beauty of this area. All told, it took us 69 year olds approx 6 hours to complete this well marked loop. One exception to "well marked" - once returning from the beach to Petrohue, they tell us to return by following to the right. We thought it was wrong; it wasn't. Continue downhill to the right, and you'll get back to the starting spot without difficulty. Beauty: amazing. Level of ability - medium unless you try and do in the heat of the day. Then it is much more difficult. Suggest that anyone start the trail before 10 a.m. as much of it is without shade.

Even though we could not see the volcano due to cloud cover, we still enjoyed our tour of this park. The rapids are beautiful and can be viewed at multiple spots. There were interesting rock sculptures (made by stacking the rocks) on side paths near the river bed. Only wish our tour guide for this cruise excursion spoke better English and did not leave us on our own to explore the area.

We did a very enjoyable one way 5-6 hour hour hike through the park from Camino La Picada to Petrohue. Most people would do the round trip from Petrohue to the designated view spot or higher to ridge. Either are on challenging terrain but through diverse landscape. Views throughout are stunning. Osorno Volcano from many angles and up close, taking in the lake and ruggedness of the national park as you reach higher view spots, range of smooth paths to volcanic river beds. A truly beautiful area. The downside is relatively poor trail markings in many parts. We were with a guide and be of at least moderate fitness in solid walking shoes. It would not be an extended walk I would consider safe to do if not familiar with the area. Need to carry (in and out) food and liquid needs.

A 23km round trip from the park car at Lago Todos Los Santos. If you are staying in Puerto Vargas you can take a one hour bus for 2,500 pesos to the lake. The sign says 8 hours to complete the hike but my wife and I ran it in 4.5 hours so I think it would take longer than 8 hours to hike it. It is very runnable with the first 4k and last 4k being basically flat. You can hike only to the mirador (6kms) if you like. This gives great views over the lake and surrounding mountains. From the mirador the path gets steeper and the views are not so good. The path ends in the middle of nowhere (Desolación !) on the other side of the volcano.

This was the first park in Chile. The Petrohue River's Waterfalls are breathtaking. You can see the Osorno Volcano Mountain off in the distance which is 2600 meters high. It last erupted on Jan 14, 1835. It is shared by Chile and Argentina.

The park is just as pictured here. Great views, waterfalls and forests. We took a local bus from Puerto Vargas....highly recommend that as an easy way to get around and to travel with locals. We don't speak Spanish and we were able to do fine. We wished we would have studied up on trail descriptions more thoroughly before we went because the signage wasn't intuitive enough for us, and we ended up getting a smaller than we wanted. Still, goregeous place that makes a great addition to a trip

This trail offers beautiful views of The Volcano Osorno, Lago Todos los Santos and several other volcanos and mountains. We hiked it on an extremely hot day and we could not finish the trail as there is no shade and the sun became unbearable. Beware that the trail is packed with “coliguacho” or large horseflies that will fly around you constantly making your hike pretty unpleasant!

This is a very nice Park and of course the hilite of our visit was a view of the waterfalls.
There are plenty of other attractions to see as well and the trails are very well maintained so you can enjoy a nice leisurely visit.
