Parque Nacional Alerce Andino, Puerto Montt

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. With our international travel planner, Puerto Montt attractions like Parque Nacional Alerce Andino can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • From 9 in the morning every day of the year 4.1 km until the millennial alerce. Low difficulty can be recommended to young children

  • We carry out the path to the larch by the sectional Chaicas River. Very close to Puerto Montt, only 7 km of gravel road in good condition. Income is paid and is traversed a path without complications of 4 km, suitable for the whole family, to jump from the Chaicas River, which is very beautiful, and 100 metres away is the ancient larch. The trail continues from there with greater difficulty and much longer. Excellent to do if one stops in Puerto Montt. Carry your lunch if you were at that time.

  • Nice park. We walked to the Alerce Milenario, a very old growth cedar 12ft in diameter and very tall. Nice trail with many Tapaculos calling. This was from the southern entrance. It has a small campground and rough but doable 5 mile road in.
  • awesome hike. must do. it'd be nice if they fixed the bridge to continue the hike though.
  • Great park with an amazing forest.

Where to stay in Puerto Montt

The most attractive of Puerto Montt's accommodations sit by the water, with new-build and nicely aged hotels offering extensive views and comfortable rooms. Move away from the water and prices tend to drop somewhat; budget hotels and guesthouses cluster in largely residential areas of the city, offering a nice enough place to put down your bags and go explore the region. If your focused on exploring the surrounding landscape, consider staying close to one of the main arterial roads for convenient regional travel options.
