Hike Paso Desolación

Paso Desolación: Vicente Pérez Rosales National Park

This active hike covers a large and scenic section of the Park Vicente Pérez Rosales. This Park was the first that ever opened in Chile, in 1926. Paso Desolación is a 12 km. path on the east face of the Osorno volcano, which offers stunning views over the lakes that surround this section of the Park. Along the way we will pass through areas covered in volcanic ash, over the forest and the fields on the slopes of the mountain. Here, you’ll see how the Andes mountain range emerges at the horizon as we reach the emerald waters of the Lake Todos Los Santos, where we end the hike and start the way back to town.
