adventure begins in Pucón, a small city located right next
lake Villarrica and at the foot of the live Volcano Villarrica and in the vicinity of three parks and a large ski resort.
Huerquehue National Park:
Also known as the "messengers’ place” in Mapuche language, the attraction generates an exuberant vegetation thanks to its abundant rains. Araucarias, mañíos, tepas and oaks, are some of the flower species, while the fox, cougar, pudú, chucao and guiña take part of the place's fauna.
You haven't been to Pucon
unless you have stayed at the Antumalal.
It's a beautiful hotel
situated on a hillside overlooking 14 acres of trees, garden
and the beautiful
Lake Villarrica. Everyone should stay here for at least a
day and night. Landhaus
is an excellent farm-stay place and the food at their restaurant
is first class and very delicious.
For those who
prefer the ultimate in luxury, the 5 star Villarrica
Park lake Hotel comes highly recommended.
If instead you are looking for a high quality but economic hostel
we can highly recommend the recently remodelled Hostel
With two National
and one private park in its vicinity, Pucon is a great starting
point for a wide range of activities and adventures.
