Full description
Discover both a lake originating from a glacier and an active volcano famous for its perfectly-shaped crater with this package. Choose to depart from Puerto Varas or Puerto Montt. After pickup from selected hotels in Puerto Varas and Puerto Montt, head to the southern shores of the Llanquihue Lake, where you'll learn about the German settlers and agriculture in the region. Once in the Vicente Pérez Rosales National Park, admire the imposing Petrohué Waterfalls, which stun visitors with their turquoise waters. From there, make your way to the origin of the Petrohué River, Todos los Santos Lake, and visit some of its sleepy beaches. By then, you'll be at the foot of the Osorno Volcano to enjoy a stop for lunch in the village of Ensenada (lunch not included), before continuing up to the ski resort on the volcano. En route, take in stunning panoramic views of the Petrohué River Valley and the beautiful Llanquihue Lake.

We had a good time. One thing to note is that all the extras you need to pay for really add up. Our guide spoke clearly and slowly enough for me to understand most of what she was saying in Spanish. Between her and the driver they were able to translate most if it to English as well.

The volcano, the waterfall, and the national park or wonderful. The lunch and the transportation were terrible. Lunch was highly oversalted and not edible. Transportation seating was very, very uncomfortable. We had a van here the next day that was 1000 times better.

Excellent and interesting tour. Guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We had a very enjoyable day trip. Unfortunately at this time of year due to the lack of water, the falls were not as spectacular as they can be, but still worth seeing. Boat trip on the emerald lake was superb. Volcano was amazing and lunch halfway up superb. The owners prepared everything fresh and were very hospitable. Brilliant trip.
