The tour sets out bordering the southern shore of Lake Llanquihue, taking the route towards Petrohue to visit the Petrohué River falls in the Vicente Pérez Rosales National Park. Once admitted to the park, a gentle hike along the paths leads to the impressive Petrohué falls where the water cascades over volcanic lava that poured down from the Osorno Volcano. The volume rate of the river’s water flow can reach an average of 370 cubic meters per second, increasing during the rainy season, when the water level of Lake Todos los Santos rises almost 2 meters. The water of the Lake is usually clear with a bluish hue. It’s a great place to take pictures and enjoy the surroundings. The tour continues to Lake Todos los Santos or Esmeralda Lake, surrounded by steep hills with a few small plains from where three snow-capped mountains are viewed: Osorno Volcano to the west, Puntiagudo Volcano to the north and Tronador volcano to the east. The forest covering the hillsides is the Valdivian Temperate Rain Forest of the Andean kind. There will be time to admire the scenery before returning to the hotel.
