Parque Philippi, Puerto Varas

3.4
#7 of 7 in Parks in Puerto Varas
Set on a small hill, Parque Philippi features several scenic trails and roads that lead to the top, where panoramic views look out over Puerto Varas and the nearby lake. Hike up the steep trails, observe the different vegetation, and try to spot various species of birds. The small city park stands as a living reminder of the ancient rainforest that covered this area before colonization. Look for a monumental cross that lights up at night, and a zipline that runs through the trees of the park.

    Accessed by paying a voluntary input, you reach a parking lot and then it travels on foot or by bike, we find only a viewpoint, for children it is fun to walk up and down. It is good to know and walk awhile.

    Beautiful. I didn't want to leave. It was so quiet and peaceful in the morning, and it's not that big. Full of green and with nice views. There's a spot halfway through that has the best view of the lake, but come on, the real landscape is the actual park. I'd go there everyday if I lived nearby.

    What a short, cool hike

    Quiet place to stroll. Good views. You can climb by car up to the top, but it can also be walking without difficulty. The cycle tracks are downhill and very frequented by locals. The two stars is less by the amount of trash accumulated in some parts of the road and in some farms.

Where to stay in Puerto Varas

To enjoy views of the volcano, stay as close to the edge of Llanquihue Lake as possible. Most higher-end accommodations sit right on the lake's shores, with a range of resorts and boutique hotels offering a touch of luxury. Look a few streets back from the lake for a choice of budget hostels and small guesthouses. Reserve your place in advance to avoid disappointment, regardless of the season.
