Parque Nacional Alerce Andino, Puerto Montt
(4.6/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Hike through South America's equivalent of a California redwoods park at Parque Nacional Alerce Andino. Though it contains many trails, rivers, and waterfalls, the highlight of the park remains the Fitzroya cypress forest, covering approximately 200 sq km (77 sq mi). Explore the many paths leading through the forest, over the rivers, and up the mountains, and admire the views of pristine nature. Keep an eye out for deer and monkey species that call this area their home. Plan your visit to Parque Nacional Alerce Andino and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Puerto Montt itinerary builder.

  • For those who like us out to the environment, and enjoy the protected areas, this large park, allows us to enter the size of the Chilean, of up to thousands of years old larch in ancient forests, and observe with astonishment. Good access, very well maintained by Conaf, with clear paths, can organize walks of short, medium or long-term, for sites where you will find beautiful flora and fauna typical of Chilean wet forests. Recommended 100%, like in many places, looked after by conaf, missing in access, a meeting place, explanation graphics of its history and the species best known, cafeteria and point of sale of siuvenirs, outside the city gates to

  • a beautiful place to walk and explore has waterfalls and lagoons, they are more or less 11 kms to the millennial alerce hence must be followed until the gaps that were closed when we went, but totally worth it. It must be comfortable clothes and water, you don't need anything more.

  • It is a good choice for light, but recommended camping there or go trekking at sunrise, since the routes are long and not achievable in a single day.
