Vicente Perez Rosales National Park

Vicente Pérez Rosales national park was created in 1926 and is distinguished by its celestial lakes and soaring volcanoes. Lago Todos Los Santos and Volcán Osorno may be the standouts, but they're actually just a few of many. In this famous park, one volcano gives way to a lake whose shores give way to the next and volcano dominating the skyline on all sides of this storied pass through the Andes range. The needlepoint of Volcán Puntiagudo (2493m) lurks to the north and craggy Monte Tronador (3491m) marks the Argentine border to the east. From the higher levels you can see where lava flows pinched off rivers and lakes, detouring them into new bodies of water.


Pérez Rosales was Chile's first national park, but its history goes back much further. In pre-Columbian times Mapuche traveled the 'Camino de Vuriloche,' a major trans-Andean route they managed to conceal from the Spaniards for more than a century after the 1599 uprising. Jesuit missionaries traveled from Chiloé, continuing up the Estero de Reloncaví and crossing the pass south of Tronador to Lago Nahuel Huapi, avoiding the riskiest crossings of the region's lakes and rivers.

This diverse landscape and the dominant presence of its volcanoes, has turned this park into one of the principal destinations in the region of Los Lagos. Its most important attractions are its volcanoes and mountains, great forests of native trees as well as one of the most beautiful and virgin lakes in the south of Chile: the lake Todos Los Santos. The wildlife in the park consist of about 30 species including Molina's hog-nosed skunk, pudu puda (a small deer), southern river otter and puma.


Vicente Pérez Rosales National Park offers great walking trails with spectacular volcanic and crystal blue lake backdrops as well as skiing, boating, fishing, thermal baths and kayaking, amongst many other activities.
