Marvel at Saltos del Petrohue, a long series of waterfalls that cascade down a volcanic rock chute. Backed by the prominent Osorno Volcano, the falls tumble from pool to pool formed by the region's distinctive black basalt formations, beginning in the Petrohue River and ending in Todos los Santos lake. 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.

  • These jumps are something not to be missed... the water turquoise speaking if only, also has two trails to traverse that take you 40 minutes alrrededor... is a place surrounded by much greenery... magic is an excursion that is reached by car by road all paved with no problem the road is all signposted...

  • No charge to enter this park and it is very beautiful. Petrohue waterfalls are very beautiful. The accessibility of the site is the first thing world. The treks in the Park are the easy level, for all ages. Recommend!

  • 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.
  • Overcrowded. Underwhelming. Overhiped
  • You must to make a stop here for this wonderful sight
  • Very nice views. Paths through trees that lead to small serene Lakes. Few people. You can go by car and only pay parking. $ 1000

  • It is a very nice place, natural beauties. Years ago had much more water, today is very dry, is a pity that the climatic changes. However, skew is a nice place to visit, and it is best that you do not pay input.
