Stroll through ancient larch forests
Wander amongst 3,000-year-old trees in the Alerce Andino National Park.
Protecting a temperate rainforest of Andean alerce trees, this national park is a magical sylvan environment of ancient forests and rivers. The Alerce is a towering, majestic tree that can grow up to 60m in height and live for up to 3,000 years.
On your way to the park, you'll feel you've stepped back in time as you pass pristine natural scenery and traditional fishing villages seemingly forgotten by the modern world. This is the beginning of the iconic Austral Road, slicing its way into some of Chile's wildest and most remote landscapes.
Within the park there's a network of forest trails to explore, keeping an eye out for animal and bird life as you hike through timeless Patagonian wilderness.
