Tolhuaca National Park is a Protected Area created on October 16, 1935 in an area of 3,500 ha that was previously part of the Malleco National Reserve. In 1985, a second section of Malleco National Reserve was also made part of the national park. Malleco National Reserve was the first protected wildlife area in both Chile and South America, so the land within Tolhuaca National Park is one of the oldest protected areas on the continent.LocationThe park is located in the commune of Curacautín, which lies within Malleco Province in La Araucania Region in southern Chile. It encompasses part of the forested lower western spurs and foothills of the Andes. Adjoining the park to the north is Malleco National Reserve. The park has an elevation of 700- asl. It includes small lakes and numerous ponds, among them the Laguna Malleco and the Laguna Verde. The source of the Malleco River is located within the park and Tolhuaca volcano is situated in near the park, dominating its vistas.Access and attractionsThere are two main point of access to the park. The first is via "Inspector Fernandes Road", 5 km north of the town of Victoria, along 74 km of gravel road. The second access is located at Kilometre 34 on the road between Curacautín and Tolhuaca Hot Springs.
Parque Nacional Tolhuaca is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Curacautin Edition.

  • Like everything in those sectors, is very nice Park, walkable and with views and beautiful landscapes. Recommended by 100% perfect to go with the family.

  • A park where you just hear the singing of the birds and as collide loose them in the trees. A great scenario for family, partner or friends in this park can be a trek of 2600 metres above sea level and located with a wonderful postcard, where you can see a lagoon surrounded by araucarias, arriving will feel a calm and a desire to not want to leave. That if trekking is strenuous, recommend you take much much water because the rise is matador but not to surrender, the only downside of the Park when I was non desia few meters left us and I already wanted to quit, but don't give up really is worthwhile to get to that place where not may believe that a Lake has formed at the top of the Hill. A fact you ascent is as 3 hours or more it will depend on pace that each carry but decline less 1 hour. So my people I recommend this dream place.

  • Great Park, though needs better descriptions for each of the walk about WHY they are good, not just their locatkons
  • It's nice, but like most of the national parks, they focus on summer tourism. It has no good trails...

  • Landscapes of access on foot or by bicycle in travel of less than thirty kilometres. Equipped campsite and always attentive Conaf Park Rangers.
