Great hiking options in this park. Not extensive loops, but enough to keep you busy for a couple of days, even without a boat to take you across the lake. Park at the free parking area, which is right past a paid parking area and...More

Don't put this walk at the top of your list. To trekking or kayaking instead of walking here on your own. In the summer the entire place is flooded with all types of flying bugs that just about turn you insane. There are several better...More

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.

One of the most interesting International Crossings is the Crossing of the Andes from Chile to Argentina, and we were delighted by our visit to Parque Nacional Vicente Perez Rosales as we crossed

This national park is worth visiting for its great views and nature. Many birds and various trees can be spotted . Greatly prepared paths ensure easy walking , clean environment and a lovely river view.

The Parque Nacional Vincente Perez Rosa includes Petronhue waterfalls, Lake Llanguihue, the largest fresh water lake in Chile and magnificent views of the volcanoes. The road is wash boarded, but is worth the jolting to get there.

It was a short walk from the entrance to the falls, through cool forest. We saw birds and beautiful views. Spectacular!

If you find yourself in the southern Chilean Lake District- this National Park is a must visit. The view of the volcanos and river is simply indescribable. It is easily accessed and has very easy hiking/walking areas to view from the best vantage points. #breathtaking

We are amazed at all the beautiful national parks we have visited in Chile and this one is no exception. Volcanoes, turquoise waters, and beautiful forests.

We spent the morning viewing the Petrohue River Falls. Fabulous colours in the water. Unfortunately there were very few birds to be seen even though they could be heard

We hired a taxi and he took us to the trails. He just needed to know how long we wanted the tour to last.

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!
