  • We went to the Lanín National Park with my family to know this Lake and we were amazed with the beauty that offers. The landscape is impressive. Crystal clear waters, beaches with black sand and the Lanín Volcano (snowy background when we were). Excellent!

  • Place paradise that visit annually with my family and friends from makes more than 25 years.-the summer is the best time to enjoy it-us are located always in the camping Bay Cañicul; possesses several has the Lake Huechulafquen.-also has cabins, something rustic, but with all the necessary amenities for tourists. Services of the campsite (dressing rooms and bathrooms) need a start-up value, although in January 2016 I noticed some improvements in relation to the previous year-no let make the Lake route which departs from Puerto Canoa to a few km from the campsite.
