We did the Cruce Andino from Bariloche, Argentina over the border which leads into this park. This park is one of nature's best - you are surrounded by the Andes, volcanoes, green and teal lakes, silence and no cell service. You truly feel like you...More

A one hour drive from Puerto Montt brings you to this 1926 established NP. The colours of river are striking and the rapids exciting to view and hear. Further up gravel road you reach Lake Llanquihue where one should take a boat ride and view...More

Amazing scenery and look-outs, was not too crowded in December. Information available in the park buildings as well as gift shops. Gift shops have a lot of fairly priced local merchandise.

The park is well maintained and at several points there are public restrooms as well as small gift shops. We spend at least an hour at Petrohue Falls and then went on farther to the shore of Lake Todos Los Santos. Definitely worth a visit!

This park is the first park created in Chile, the oldest one and one of the most visited ones. You have long day hikes or smaller ones. And a most see which is Saltos de Petrohue falls.

I would still go hike in Saltos de Petrohue, just don't try to walk all the routes, you can easily turn back when you decide you would like to. Enjoy!
