It's a very beautiful place, it's a big lake and very quiet, but when we went it was a cloudy day. They say if the sky is clear you can see the volcanos around. If you want to there's some boats that do a tour around the lake, we paid 5.000 chilean pesos/person for 30 min.

Try the boat tour to see the surrounding areas around the lake. But view depends on the weather which is usually cloudy

We returned to the lake on a sunny day. Not many tourists so my husband and I were approached by a boat owner with an offer of a 1hour trip on a boat for 20 people for 20000peso. It was very peaceful and pretty. The water is so clear and the views up the mountains amazing. We saw areas with... More

This beautiful Lake that was formed due to the large amount of lava by eruptions of the volcano Osorno in the last centuries, allows to enjoy the magical nature of the South of Chile, which brings together mountains, forests, lakes, rivers, and much more. Not to be missed!

Beautiful lake in front of Osorno volcano. The boat ride is nothing special, specially for the price they will charge you. But it`s worth it walking around the lake.

It was a fantastic experience to travel by boat till Peulla across the lake. In this trip we could see de Osorno and Pontiagudo volcans almost all the time.

I navigated all across Lago Todos Los Santos all the way from Peulla (in one corner of the Lake) to the town of Petrohué (in the other corner). All along the way there were spectacular views of the volcanoes Tronador at first. Then on our left we had Volcán Puntiagudo, and finally, at the end of the journey, the magnificent... More

A lovely trip through the mountains on the water. We expected really chilly weather, but were blessed with a warm summer day.

The turquoise water against the lush green canopy covered mountains make for such beautiful scenery. The only negative is the bus loads of people stop at the waterfall. The good thing is the Chileans have made it so accessible as there were a lot of elderly or people with kids. If you want a quiet spot keep driving to another... More
