We’ll depart Yan Kee Way Lodge and travel through Villa Ensenada to the skirts of Volcano Osorno, to the entrance of Vincente Perez Rosales National Park and the
Laguna Verde area. Our expedition takes us along the skirt of the volcano, where we will enjoy the native plant and animal life while proceeding to our destination, “Los
Pilleyos”. We’ll continue into Vincente Perez Rosales National Park to visit an area where we may see the glacial run-off from the volcanoes’ slopes and glaciers,
together with other points of interest.
We will then proceed to the famous Petrohué waterfalls or “Los Saltos”. The falls were created, first by the enormous lava flows of Osorno Volcano, which
cut-off the flow of water between Lake Todo Los Santos and Lago Llanquihue. When it did so it formed a new outflow from Todo Los Santos, now known as the Petrohué River. The
volcanic flows created a rise in the land mass, which immediately came under attack by the new and powerful Petrohué river. The lava has been, and is being sculpted into
unusual forms by the relentless flow of the river. The flora and fauna of the temperate rain forest abound in this area.
We will take short hikes to “Los Enamorados” and “Carrilemu” where we will learn about the different types of rocks, vegetation, and animals that
live in this temperate rain forest. We’ll complete our expedition with a visit to Todos Los Santos Lake or, as it is also known --“Emerald Lake,”-- so
named for the deep emerald color of its waters. You will want to take photos from the beach while enjoying your picnic lunch. Return to Yan Kee Way Lodge. This is a special
expedition for the family and for those who love the outdoors and wish to see and photograph the flora and fauna of this area.
