Petrohué Waterfalls, Puerto Varas

Marvel at Petrohué Waterfalls, a long series of waterfalls that cascade down a volcanic rock chute. Backed by the prominent Osorno Volcano, the falls tumble from pool to pool formed by the region's distinctive black basalt formations, beginning in the Petrohue River and ending in Todos los Santos lake. Explore the lushly forested surroundings, fed by the clear waters of the river. You can even try your hand at kayaking or rafting on certain sections of the falls with a guided tour.

  • I expected more but it's wonderful, they could lengthen the bridges. there is a small place to buy souvenirs and have a normal coffee
