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

We sailed the lake with a catamaran for about an hour and a half and the views were gorgeous. Highly recommended.

It reminded me of Norway a bit. We walked the Sendero del Desolacion from here and back along the lake, through the volcanic grit. It is so peaceful.

The Todos los santos lake is located inside the Vicente Perez Rosales National Park. It is a huge and beautiful lake upstream the Petrohué falls! If you want to breathe pure air and rest for a few days, this place is for you!

Don't pay for an expensive tour, you can take a blue bus (the small ones) for 2000-2500 pesos chilenos. Amazing lake, great views.

Once you arrive from Ensenada on a not too good gravel road after the entrance to the Petrohue waterfall (till then there is a very good asphalt road), don`t park in the paying lot. It is expensive and not too near to the boat trips, Drive around it to the left and get to the lake shore, where you can... More

Wish we had more time to stay and we only saw it for 30 minutes as part of a tour. We got off the bus and onto a boat for the visit. Beautiful waters and gorgeous views. A lot of exclusive homes on the shore line and a few fishing lodges around. With a little more time, worth a half... More
