Our Expert Guides will lead you on a thrilling trekking tour along the infamous Desolation Path. We'll leave from Puerto Varas and began hiking near the Petrohué Waterfall. We will venture through green trees, emerald waters, and black earth (caused by volcanic eruptions) - to the entrance of “Desolation Path” (Sendero Desolación). The contrasting colors of these landscapes is breathtaking - to say the least.
The trail we'll take is located in the eastern slopes of Osorno Volcano, and reaches an altitude of 1,100 meters. Here, we'll be able to appreciate panoramic views of Tronador Volcano, Cerro la Picada and Lake Todos Los Santos. The path we take separates the Osorno Volcano and the extinct La Picada Volcano - both in the heart of Vicente Pérez Rosales National Park. Along the way we will see a variety of native species, including beautiful birds and rare reptiles.
After 6 hours of walking, we will reach a lookout point from where we'll observe the region’s volcanoes, lakes, and hills. We'll then continue to explore Vicente Perez Rosales National Park, the oldest National Park in Chile. This park is located in a beautiful forest, and is home to Coihues, Notros, Ulmos and other volcanic ecosystem species.
Join us on this amazing journey through some of Chile's most awe-inspiring landscapes. Challenge yourself with a level 7 trek, discover nature's beauty, and see views that will create memories to last a lifetime!
