Volcano Osorno and Waterfalls
You will depart from Puerto Montt, toward the north to start a trip going along the edge of the second largest lake in Chile and the third largest in South America. The landscapes of this place are beautiful and amazing. After going along the edge of the lake, we will travel through fields to see meadows, sown lands, fruit trees, berries and livestock especially bred for meat and milk production.
In addition, we will pass places where you will see some great vacation buildings, and beautiful parks and flowers. All around it is possible to notice at first sight the German colonization influence, especially in terms of home buildings and well-grown rose, dahlia and hydrangea gardens abounding everywhere.
Then we will travel toward the east, in the direction of the Vicente Pérez Rosales National Park, the oldest and also the largest park in Chile. From the foot of the Osorno volcano we will go through a paved road up to the Centro de Esquí Volcán Osorno, located at 1,400 meters above the sea, to enjoy this place, a panoramic view of the whole lake and the valley of the Petrohué river (if weather permits).
Later, we will go down through the lava fields to continue going around the southern side of the volcano, which way will lead us to the Petrohué river, a unique place in the park, where the nature of forests typical of the south of Chile combines with the torrential river flowing over volcanic rocks from so many eruptions taken place in the last centuries.
From this place, we will follow the way back to Puerto Varas, known as the “City of Roses”, where you can walk down its well decorated and clean streets and boardwalk, which make it a tourist-face and lovely city.
