#1 of 24 in Wildlife in Los Lagos Region

    Not to be missed visit especially with Sun. From Puerto Varas jumps 40 minutes or less bus. $1,200 per person leave you right at the entrance. Entry costs $ 1,500 pesos. Go with comfortable clothes.

    The Petrohue River Falls are unforgettable and the view of the Osorno is spectacular. Walk down runways seeing several jumps with the color of the emerald-green water with the contrast of the black stone is wonderful.

Where to stay in Puerto Varas
