Parque Nacional Queulat, Puyuhuapi

#1 of 14 in Outdoors in Aisen Region
#Outdoor Activity, #Must See
Dominated by the Patagonian Andes, the pristine Parque Nacional Queulat is a vast national park largely unspoiled by human influence and known for its remarkable variety of natural attractions. The 150,000 hectare (339,000 acre) park features tall, snowcapped mountains, lakes, lagoons, and fjords. Arguably the park's biggest feature is the Hanging Glacier, which creates two rushing waterfalls that drop into a milky white lagoon. Explore the park's evergreen forests and fjords, where you can encounter a large variety of colorful birds, Chilean dolphins, the world's smallest deer species, and on the rare occasion, pumas. Put Parque Nacional Queulat into our Puyuhuapi route website to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Puyuhuapi.

  • We wanted a ride by boat to get to the foot of the glacier but before paying came a horde of screaming kids and we preferred to reach the mirador for the most difficult. If I remember correctly were 3 km uphill and downhill. the day was rainy and also presents the steps high and muddy. upon arrival the glacier far enough and the dark and foggy day prevented the best shots. at the end of your visit you will remember if only because of the grind.

  • I was surprised by vegetation and amount of waterfalls falling by where the vista look. A unique beauty.

  • The Park is beautiful and want to stay all day there. I wanted to go see the snowdrift in boat, which charge $10,000 per person. We arrived at 12 and already had 3 hours of waiting for boats. Too much.

  • Very nice Park, apparently has an extremely diverse flora. Most of the Park runs through drive by Ruta 7, and on the way there are some viewpoints and small trails (few) most important trails are the enchanted forest and Ventisquero Colgante. The Ventisquero Colgante Glacier is in the main part of the Park, paid access (5000 pesos for foreigners). There are three ways to view the glacier, the trail of 3.3 km (ida 2:30), by a mirador (5 minutes walk from the parking lot) and for access by platform (including accessible for wheelchairs), 50 m long. The vision of the glacier is good even in the options easier than 3.3 km trail. The mirador of this long trail if you have a broader view, with a lake. The trail is officially categorized as average, is a relatively steep climb especially the first third. Take into account that in moderate step climb takes around 2:30. There are some focosndenlamanno way, but it is possible to Pierce all carefully without getting dirty. There is a point in the last part, which goes through a very wet, as a small source. It wasn't deep and carefully we could pass without getting wet. The back, walking also moderately, lasts about 2 hours.

  • Fantastic place! Be sure to make the trails and the boat ride to the foot of Ventisquero Colgante ... rain or shine!!!

  • Compulsory stop for those who roam the southern road, is an unforgettable landscape for nature lovers 😍 would happily go. There are several paths to tour the Park, you have to go with time to know enchanted forest with good weather, with lots of rain, some trails are cut by the current of the river. The path to the hanging glacier is short, also you can go on boat across the lagoon to see the glacier much closer, but additional trekking to get another view. Outside of the Park close to the entrance, there is a place where you can lease parts or lease land for camping, also rent bikes there.

  • Excellent Park, some trails, Ventisquero Colgante (3.3 km, about 2:00 and a half round trip trail hard, steep and with a lot of mud and a small shallow river, with attention gives to spend at all without getting wet or getting dirty). The view is really beautiful and worth. The enchanted forest trail was closed indefinitely because there was an avalanche (this in October 2017).

  • Good place. Clean bathrooms and showers. The walk to the glacier on the trail and in the raft are fantastic
