Soak in a Chilean hot spring
Bathe in steaming natural pools in a magical setting of Valdivian woodland.
After a day’s hiking or sightseeing in the cool climes of the Chilean lake district, there’s no better way to unwind than with a dip in the naturally warm thermal waters of one of the area’s hot springs.
Hidden deep in native forests, these pools bubble and steam invitingly within an enchanted setting. The Geometric hot springs are perhaps our favourite, with a chain of cinnamon-brown walkways etching striking patterns across the lush surroundings as streams cascade in between the natural pools.
