  • Visit Petrohue River

    River & Volcano

    I have just returned from a five week trip to Chile with my university. Of all the places we visited and things we did this was definitely my favorite. The river and volcano is unbelievable! It is wihtout a doubt the most beautiful place I have ever seen.

    The prehistoric surroundings

    Green everywhere on the Petrohue River

    The surroundings of the river are very green, with lots of trees and mountains. It is said that southern Chile keeps its forests like they were when the dinosaurs were alive. No wonder that the Discovery Channel's documentary "Walking with Dinosaurs" was filmed in southern Chile.
    So if you want a taste of the past, come to Chile! You won't regret it!

    Saltos del Petrohue

    Well known to any visitor coming here, it's a must-see. They're not huge or fall from a high altitude, but the clearness of the water, the volcano and the surrounding mountains, make the fall even more beautiful.
    Look out for the salmons on the river, just below the waterfall.

    The road

    As one approaches to the Vicente Perez Rosales Park, where the Saltos de Petrohue are, the surrounding change dramatically. Big mountains surrounded by coigue trees give a pleasent feeling to everyone. This is the road to get there. Simply beautiful.

    Osorno Volcano, Llanquihue Lake and I

    On the way from Puerto Varas to Petrohue, you'll go around the Llanquihue lake, the biggest one in Chile. Behind it, the Osorno volcano, one of the many Chile has.
    Imagine the picture without me, the landscape is much better!!!

    Petrohue is a nice place to walk around for an afternoon - definetly worth the trip and the scenery from the bus that goes there (we took the bus from Puerto Varas) is nice as well.

    Ignacio, Pablo, myself & Rodrigo @ Petrohue Rive

    The Petrohue River comes from the Todos Los Santos Lake, a huge lake at the top of the Andes. That's the reason the water is so clear and so cold.

    Osorno volcano

    It's there, and it's impossible to miss. It's huge but it's not active. That doesn't mean that it might erupt someday, but its crater is not open. For the time being...

    Petrohue river passing through the volcanic soil

    As you might notice on the ground, the volcanic soil is clearly seen. The Osorno volcano erupted many years ago, leaving its melting lava all around.
