Generally keeping to the low ground of the river valleys, you can explore the beautifully verdant landscape of Vicente Perez Rosales.
From the shore of Lago Todos los Santos, make your way to the relaxing hot springs at Termas de Callao, and on to Lago Rupanco.
There is one refuge, en route, by the Termas (but you can walk there and back in a day). Camping will be necessary if you are going to the Lago. Check the latest position.
If you don?t want to end up at a different trailhead (at El Poncho), then you can turn around at the thermal baths retrace your steps. This used to be more of a problem, as getting a boat back across the lake was unreliable, but there are now companies which provide guides, food etc. for the trip ? such as Petrohue Expediciones.
Have a look at TripAdvisor ? there are tens of millions of reviews, so you may get good, current views on this walk.
