Parque Philippi, Puerto Varas

3.4
#7 of 8 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.

  • I was in car since you can access the top of the Hill... delays a couple of minutes to arrive and unfortunately not find anything on top. The viewpoint is bad, the trees and plants cover the vista of the city (due to lack of maintenance), is neglected. There are beautiful trails to climb the Hill on foot or by bike (exclusive routes for cyclists), I think that is the only thing remarkable Hill. If they go up, do not expect to meet with a beautiful view...

  • We went to visit the cerrito Philippi and find that it is equal to 30 years ago, they have not improved it and until the wood is old... The city view is elusive, but if you're in Puerto Varas, walks to explore it

  • Only worth the exercise, since there is virtually no view from the top of the Park is covered by overgrown Philippi. At the Summit of the hill there is the stone of the picture with a commemorative plaque. Is that it. The road is paved but call anything anything.

  • 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.
  • Awesome park to do trekking, riding bycicle, photography and more! Great for exercising
  • Nice park, lovely view
  • What a short, cool hike
  • Very nice Park, lots of vegetation and trails for pedestrians as cyclists, as well as access for vehicles, both agree with several comments that should prune the place and keep it more ordered, to give more security and that you can see better the city and the Lake , the monumental cross is impressive!
