We took a tour off the ship and visited Todos los Santos (Emerald) Lake and the Petrohue River. We cruised the lake on a medium size ferry with plenty of viewing areas and lots of opportunities to view the scenery. This is truly worth a visit if you are visiting Chile. The lake is stunning and we were fortunate to... More

We took the day tour on the ferry, the trip is great of beatifull places to see and shoot pictures, then the arrival at Peuya offers horse back riding and 4x4 tours. Good place to spend the day with the family.

Start of catamaran ride from Puerto Varas to Bariloche. Great scenery when you sit outside on the back of the boat.

The lake is so blue and clean, and you will fall in love with it when you see it. You can take a boat to the island in the lake and have a nice walk.

When you drive there you are impressed by the color of the lake but dis appointée when you notice that if you don't go on a boat tour you cannot enjoy the place. For those who like to pay a lot to enjoy nature only.

The boat trip, from Peulla village to Petrohue, is very scenic in good weather. You will get majestic views of the Osorno and Puntiagudo volcanoes. But for us, going only one way and having to pay a return trip price, it is overly expensive. So, if you arrive in Peulla after a hike in Argentina, know that the boat is... More

We had a short boat trip on the lake, which was pleasant and relaxing. There are great views if the weather is good. We enjoyed the home made cake on the boat and were glad to see that life jackets were provided and it was a well organised and professional operation.

Beautiful scenery, nice place to go for a long or short hike. The water was so clear and the view from the first mirador overlooking Volcan Osorno was great, even with the clouds! It took us about an hour for 5-6km.

Understand this is a spot where folks rent a room for a few days and just relax, Maybe hike or boat. Bit remote - one small restaurant. Unfortunately we were there during the dreaded 6 weeks of horse flies that were swarming along the lake.
