Reserva Nacional Malalcahuello, Malalcahuello

4.8
#1 of 7 in Wildlife in Araucania Region
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.

    The reserve is beautiful, with its Araucarias milenarias and little foxes walking through the Woods. The scenario of the volcanoes leaves the place even more special!

    great place to learn to ski and make friends, especially if you have small children. Nice structure without a lot of people

    Chile is beautiful what you look at. If you enjoy nature visit this place that mixed forest of Araucaria, amazing volcanoes and local fauna. The views from the Ski Center are striking in winter.
