Circuito: This experience begins in the Petrohue Expeditions office with the presentation of the guide and description of the route for a correct development of the trekking.

Once the safety talk has been made, the 14 km walk will take us to Paso Desolación. We start towards the Arenal of the Osorno Volcano, where the magnitude of the last eruptions is dimensioned. On clear days you can see the volcanoes Calbuco, Puntiagudo, Picada, Tronador and glaciers that cover the summit of the volcano Osorno. Continuing along the old road you can enjoy beautiful views of Lake Todos los Santos. In the third alluvium is the variant of ascending by a stream of polished basalt converted from a narrow canyon.
