Petrohué to Peulla – a cruise with Cruces Andinos Nov 03, 2016
Our tour in the Vicente Perez Rosales National Park included a catamaran cruise on Lago Todos los Santos from Petrohué to Peulla and back. The company responsible for these cruises, Cruces Andinos, provide them as part of a package which allows tourists to travel between Chile and Argentina, or vice versa, by boat and bus across the Andres, but it’s also possible to do as we did a and take the cruise as a return trip on the lake as part of an excursion from Puerto Varas.

The boats are modern and comfortable, with plenty of interior seating (which we appreciated on the wet day when we made the trip) as well as room out on deck for photo-taking. The lower deck has a small coffee shop where you can buy various refreshments as well as souvenirs of your trip (postcards, Cruces Andinos baseball caps etc.). There’s also a tour desk where those who want to can book to do various activities in Peulla such as a canopy tour or horse-riding. We hadn’t been warned that these were available for an extra fee so hadn’t brought a large amount of cash, but in any case, the weather was too poor for these to be very appealing. So instead we relaxed and enjoyed the ride and what we could see of the scenery.

The one way trip from Petrohué to Peulla took about 90 minutes and we had three hours at Peulla before the return trip back to Petrohué. On that return trip the captain made a short stop at a waterfall that tumbles into the lake at one point, but otherwise it was a simple retracing of our route out to Peulla.
