Parque Nacional Vicente Perez Rosales, Puerto Varas

4.8
#1 of 23 in Wildlife in Los Lagos Region
With its virgin lakes, dense forests, lagoons, waterfalls, and towering volcanoes, Parque Nacional Vicente Perez Rosales is a true haven for nature enthusiasts. See how craggy mountains and volcano cones dominate the skyline on all sides of Chile's first national park, established in 1926. Take a map from the visitor's center, pick a route across the river valley, and start exploring the rich wildlife. The park offers many activities, including boat riding, fishing, swimming, skiing, and horseback riding. Climb to one of many observation points and try to spot the places where lava flowed into the river and changed its course. Choose your travel dates carefully, keeping in mind that Puerto Varas has nearly 250 rainy days a year.

  • My wife and I traveled through the park from Chile to Argentina as part of a Tauck tour in South America. Great trip on buses and boats. Wonderful scenery. Some very bumpy roads and all and all a memo...  more »
  • Park well signposted with appropriate infrastructure. Receives many visitors but no riots. Petrohué River heels are not to be missed. Worth the walk. Blue water like no other.

  • Beautiful National Park located in the Los Lagos region, where you can navigate the Todos Los Santos Lake which is a must if you're in the region. Water color mixed with green Turquoise is very beautiful. If you decide to sail the Lake, you were in Peulla which is of those places that you never forget.
