  • In this park, you will find the Osorno volcano. The area of the Park is very large and there are several points of interest spread for him.

  • I cannot describe the color of this water. I was really surprise because wasn't expecting too much of there. 
  • There's no way come to Puerto Varas and not knowing the Park. Within the Park are the ascent to the Osorno volcano, jumps to Petrohue, Lake and many others. Sunny days leave the more beautiful still.

  • Most beautiful place in the world. I went there for trout fishing and had one of the greatest experiences on my life.
  • Extraordinary. I have walked both walk (trekking) and kayaking on Lake Todos los Santos (crossing Petrohue/Peulla) a couple of times. Captive. Paddle looking Osorno, Puntiagudo and Tronador, between huillines, Martín Pescador... and ancient forests is truly magical. The leap of Petrohué is wonderful. A variety of species of fungi, lichens, amphibians, flora. Side note: striking that within the same unit, there are huge summer houses (mansions in a nutshell) with grass and all sorts of exotic species that have started to invade the area, such as Ivy. Saw, in an of them, a person spraying (with coverall, mask, gloves) the garden of them owners (that van 1 time to the year) in their barges, motorbikes of water... . It is unheard of strange as also the Turistour company that is a kind of mafia. Just is what the Rangers can do against esto. I took all measures to make the expeditions leave no trace and put us many difficulties while the rest almost intervenes significantly both in landscape as affecting the flora and fauna (use of wood) for the chimneys of the houses. Is well surrealistic. I hope that you can better order the thing at the normative level and increase the powers to the Rangers.

  • I'll know this park. Stunning landscape nature in its splendor. The Chilean people captivated me in the previous trip. I come back again on vacation to continue getting to know this wonderful country. November 2015 met the Chilean towers south of the glaciers Painne and fascinating fjords... Am now discovering their culture and geography his people... from the RegionX

  • Surrounded by volcanoes. The Park is very nice, I was lucky to meet the two routes under the petrohue waterfalls, there is much info about the place, its volcanic formation, its flora, its fauna, see large trees undercut by the River, etc. You can take excellent photos
