A hike of just under 100km, which follows the path formed by the volcanoes Casa Blanca and Osorno.
Our first base camp at the Bertín Lagoon we find in the National Park Puyehue in the province of Osorno. From here we climb the volcano Casa Blanca. The descent leads us south and brings us to the nearest Rupanco Lake. In "Las Gaviotas" a secluded village, without roads or telephones, we are warmly welcomed by local families and strengthened we take up the further way towards the Todos los Santos Lake. We pass the lagoon "Los Quetros", the hot springs "El Callao" and enjoy a unique view of the volcano Puntiagudo. Arrived at Todos Los Santos Lake we cross it on a small boat to enjoy the sunset from the shore. The next day we master the hiking trail "Paso Desolación" to the base camp of Osorno Volcano. We climb Osorno volcano on the north slope and choose the normal west route for the descent to arrive at Teski mountain hut, where our transport to Puerto Varas is already waiting for us.
