Hike Desolation Pass
Breathe in the fresh mountain air on this rewarding day hike in the native forests and black volcanic plains beneath Osorno’s imposing peak.
The 7-hour trek starts in the hamlet of Petrohue near Puerto Varas. From here, you’ll climb a mountain pass through a barren basalt landscape that gradually transforms into lush woodland and finally unveils an astonishing view of Lago Todos Los Santos.
After a picnic lunch, follow the gnarled lava trail left by an ancient eruption to arrive at the lakeshore with time for a refreshing wild swim before returning to Petrohue and your waiting driver.
