Lago del Toro is a lake located in the Magallanes Region in southern Chile. Also known as Lago del Toro or Lago Toro, its etymology comes from the lake's ability to generate 4 m swells due to a long (30 km) fetch and high winds aligned with the long axis of the lake. Locals say that the lake and the nearby mountain Sierra del Toro is named thus because the lake 'is angry a lot' ("porque se enoja mucho!"). Services on the lake include camping and fishing.
