Parque Nacional Alerce Andino, Puerto Montt

(4.6/5 based on 280+ 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.

  • A beautiful park full of different trees and animals. Very good care and with trails for hiking. Not to be missed jumps and ancient larch. The children walked the 8 k without problems. It would make other circuits. The Rangers are also very attentive. Recommended.
