Reserva Nacional Malalcahuello, Malalcahuello
(4.8/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Survey the volcanic charcoal landscapes of Reserva Nacional Malalcahuello, a desert panorama reminiscent of the Sahara but with more of an ash like, dark appearance stretching for 303 sq km (116 sq mi). The two hour trek shows the best facets of the national park, though longer trails are available. Take plenty of water along as the desert like conditions here make it very hot. 4X4s can be rented for those who would prefer not to traverse the uphill volcano ascent by foot.

  • Safety pin if you like trekking, Araucaria mother, near the hotel of corralco, the viewpoint of volcanoes, past the hotel and native pizza

  • Clues for all tastes! Great instructors! Delicious skiing in a park, you can see various animals and a beautiful sight! It's worth it! The only problem is that the hotel until the track has to use a bus that sometimes it takes and to return the track when you're already tired mind.
