  • A beautiful park to admire the visual proporciona...com nature hiking trails and places for a good rest, has a good infrastructure ... really liked it, but you'd have to check the time of entry, as well as the rates of entry into the Park.

  • This is a fabulous place for a day hike. We spent 8 hours on the trail. The scenery and views are spectacular. We also enjoyed seeing old-growth trees and the unique Araucanía trees.
  • Went in December, and I can tell that it's one of the most beautiful sceneries that Chile could offer. Hiking up until Lago Verde was medium in difficulty, but so beautiful! Worth every step up hill 😉 Prepare to take a very cold bath in Lago Verde, amazing!!!
  • Beautiful encounter with ancient araucarias forest sorrounded by mountains and lakes
  • The views for the lakes, the accessibility for cars, and the trails are really well planned. The trails are rather short, the lengthier one is just 2 days long.
  • Beautiful park. We went in the winter and hiked sendero los Lagos and it was absolutely stunning in the snow. If you are in the area you can't miss this park!

Where to stay in Pucon

As a world-renowned haven for outdoor adventurers, Pucon features a wide range of options when it comes to places to stay, though the bottom line for even budget prices is significantly higher than elsewhere in Chile. Many of the most affordable establishments are the hostels clustered in the city center, which often feature communal areas popular with the backpacker crowd. On the other end of the spectrum, you can opt for upscale lodges with their own pools, restaurants, and Wi-Fi capabilities, also within walking distance of just about any place in town. Pucon teems with adventure travelers in January and February, when prices go up and availability plummets. Make reservations ahead to avoid disappointment, or opt to go outside the height of tourist season.
