  • Ah been is one of the best trips we have ever had with my family, the place of dreams with its flora, fauna and unique landscapes. Good infrastructure, clean bathrooms, spacious sites for camping and marked trails. The only thing that leaves much to be desired is the attention to the public that it occurs within the reception of paths, we start asking for a map of the park or par trails to locate us and plan five days we stayed at the campsite the Ñirres and the response that we receive by s u part was "is the responsibility of CONAF deliver maps" (ask in the goal of the Park and we were told that it was responsibility of paths). Over the next few days we went to ask for indications on the paths that we could make with our three-year-old son and the responses were quite basic and not very willingly, it can perhaps be understood during high season or high-demand days but the truth is that the second week of March there were few people in the Park, perhaps for being Chilean or young paid us no attention. Because we realized the great attention given to foreign tourists. We plan to return to this park in a few years more to make the path to the "Sierra Nevada" hopefully we find a better provision by the Staff of paths and greater presence of brochures. Greetings from Santiago

  • The Park is very nice, it lacks to improve many things (as it is typical of the parks administered by conaf) as paths, bridges, etc. The colors of pretty amazing lagoons, the grandiose llaima volcano, and the trails surrounded by pine and really interesting Coigües. There are volcanic stones, where you can see fossils (if you have patience). More difficult trekking is sierra nevada, it is recommended to contact someone to take them and to know the place. To get from Temuco, it is best to hire an operator, since the nearest town is Melipeuco, and the distance to the Park is very long, for more than one day. They can stay a night in melipeuco, negotiate with the operator and then go to icalma which is very close to the place.

  • We stayed in the cabins within the park for xmas weekend. It seems as we were the first people to use the Llaima cabin for the season. The cabin felt like it was brand new and was just the right size ...  more »

  • Whatever time of the year you choose, it will probably be the best day of your life. I've been to many National Parks in Chile and this is still at the top. In the summer it can get crowded since it's got one of the best camping facilities plus different sizes of log cabins. The lake is engine-free so it's very clean. Perfect for kayaking. Super Family friendly. They even offer activities for kids like group games and walks.
  • Had a wonderful ride through the park on a motorcycle. Stopped for a picnic at one of the lakes. It was one of the best rides of our ten day trip.
  • Beautiful park! Easy to get to from Tecumo. Entrance fees per person are 4,000 pesos for a Chileno and 6,000 pesos for a foreigner during peak season, which starts in November. There's a dirt road through the park, which we did in our small rental car without any problems. There are a few spots in the road where you do need to go slow and be careful, but unless the weather is bad you should be okay with just a car. Recommend checking out the Seirra Nevada trail to the Condors Lookout, which is about 1.5 to 2 hours round trip.
  • We stayed at the Sendas Conguillio inside of the park. While it was pricey it was beautiful and we were there virtually alone (Dec 24-26). There is so much to see in the park; it's amazing and other-wordly. You should definitely see this place.
  • Beautiful place with several different landscapes to enjoy.
