    We have been in Puerto Varas for 5 days. The only time Osorno volcano was not obscured by clouds was the night before and the morning of this trip. The guide said that we were lucky as it had been cloudy and raining for over a week. But instead of seizing the opportunity and going to the volcano straight away, he took us to Petrohue first, then wasted another hour while he and the others went on an 'extra' boat trip on Lago Todas Los Santos, which was not even on the itinerary. (My husband and i did not go on this as we had booked a trip which included this a couple of days later. Only then, at nearly midday, did we go to Osorno and as we made our way there, it became covered in heavy cloud, so there were no beautiful views and the experience was a great disappointment.
    I fully understand that good weather and great views can not be guaranteed....but he had a great opportunity to give us that....and he missed it. Osorno was the main headline of the was first on the list to be visited on the itinerary i looked at when i booked the trip.
    He made a poor decision and spoiled the day.

    I had huge difficulties contacting the local tour to get information on pickup. Though I emailed also they did not give me direct access to them until very late in the process. In short we missed our tour even though we continued to try to contact them up to the morning when we landed in Puerto Varas. Very disappointed!

    Excelente passeio. Petrohue é simplesmente deslumbrante, completado com um excelente passeio-navegação no Lago Esmeraldas. O Volcano Osorno é maravilhoso, quero dizer, a sensação de estar no vulcão é maravilhosa. A vista é encantadora e a proximidade da boca do vulcão é causa uma adrenalina diferente. Acho que se deveria ter mais tempo livre no ponto de apoio/base . Chega-se com fome lá em cima, e o tempo para dividir entre comer, ver loja e caminhar ou ir no é muito curto. Só isso de falha.

    Wonderful trip to the heights of the Osorno Volcano. The guide was helpful and made our trip to the volcano and neighboring lakes an unforgettable experience.
