Hike in a monkey puzzle forest
Climb through Valdivian rainforest to reach a viewpoint over turquoise lakes.
The lushly forested slopes of Huerquehue National Park are an inviting setting for a day’s hiking. Starting amidst tranquil lakes, you’ll climb through Valdivian rainforest, full of monkey puzzle and the distinctive Araucaria tree with its whorl of needle-like leaves sweeping horizontally out from a towering trunk. Occasional glimpses of Villarrica volcano through the openings in the foliage, or in the mirrored surface of a lake, give a foretaste of the awe-inspiring vistas you’ll enjoy at the top.
