It's worth your while stopping at Rio Correntoso, the smallest river in the world, for a look. It's more tranquil than you'd expect looking at it from the road above. Lots of fat trout in the water below. Best way to get there is to...More

This is a beautiful spot with the turquoise colour of the river between the two lakes surrounded by the snow-capped mountains so has full marks for natural beauty. However the signage off the main road is very poor, as it the dirt track to the...More

Only a few kms away from town, this short river offers nice views of the lake and surrounding forests. The color of the water is just amazingly green. You can cross the bridge and then walk the shore. Go early to avoid lots of people

I loved it, they have it all, the perfect views, rooms, food, hotel service...I know it is rather pricy but they have specials and discounts so do not doubt it. I will be back soon!!!

This is approached by a short but rough road. It is a nice view of an old bridge and this very short "river" connecting the two lakes. We took a peep as it was recommended to us, but against the other outstanding views on the...More
