#7 of 11 in Nature in Pucon
National Park Nature / Park
Enjoy a range of hiking options at Santuario el Cani, one of Patagonia's most picturesque and memorable trails. The forest shelters one the world's oldest tree species, the araucaria. This private nature reserve covers an area of 607 hectares (1,500 acres), and trails here generally require a full day of trekking, so those of low fitness levels or walking experience should approach with caution. If you're up for the challenge, take the three- to four-hour trek to the highest point at the park--prepare to go uphill almost the whole way. Using our international travel planner, Pucon attractions like Santuario el Cani can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

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.

  • The path is EXTREMELY steep at the start that I almost gave up. After the refugio, I actually got lost so I turned back. The path is not well-marked so be-careful. Also, there are cows and goats that ...  more »
  • Hold on until the top: the view is breathtaking! You can go there in bus. P.S: if you have walking sticks, take them with you, you will need them!  more »
  • Took a bus from downtown for 700 CLP one-way (USD$1) that drops you off right at the start of the path. There is a station there with maps where you pay the entrance fee of 4000 CLP (USD$6). The hike ...  more »
