Explore the lushly forested surroundings, fed by the clear waters of the river. You can even try your hand at kayaking or rafting on certain sections of the falls with a guided tour.

  • It is a majestic place, which you filled with many positive emotions when you enjoy the air, nature and the magic of its spectacular landscape. The blue of its waters, the green of its forests and mountains of the place make you feel tiny but full of joy.

  • The Park is huge and if you don't have much time, visit at least the heels of Petrohue. Simply the most divine landscape that I experienced with the volcano in the background framing the falls. Water with a striking color, it looked like Emerald. Would come back again without thinking.

  • The falls weren't very great in my opinion, coming from Pacific Northwest of the USA. Additionally the last bit of trail leading to the falls was closed but this information wasnt mentioned anywhere in the town, before we took a 45 bus to the falls. Since the waterfall isn't too high/tall, we couldn't get a good view of the water fall with the last portion of the trail closed.
  • Just awesome
  • Overcrowded. Underwhelming. Overhiped
  • You must to make a stop here for this wonderful sight
  • Unfortunately only Turin ripoff. So how the Park is nice two different prices for national and international is that can't... 😭😳 Desgraciadamente, sólo Turín. Tan hermoso como el parque también precios diferentes para nacional e inter Nacional no funcionó tiene dos... 😤😠
