(220+ reviews on the web)
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
Head to Parque Oncol, a natural reserve in the Valdivian Coast Range, for unmatched views and lush wildlife trails. The 7.5 km (3 sq m) park is situated mostly on Cerro Oncol, the highest peak in the mountain range. Climb to the 715 m (2,345 ft) summit to admire miles of ocean, the Argentine border, and several large volcanoes. Explore the natural surroundings on one of the relatively easy hiking trails, or take a canopy zipline trip along the wildlife-filled rainforest. The park also offers restrooms, campsite facilities, and a coffee shop where you can relax with a hot drink. Parque Oncol is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Valdivia Edition.

  • A must, if you like nature and hiking. The most popular trail (Oncol) goes to the viewpoint from where you see the entire Valdivia city and much farther. They say in good days you can see 7 volcanoes. Trail is midium difficulty. Bring water.
  • Parque Oncol. Private reserve valdivian forest located 32 km from Valdivia (Part of the road is unpaved). Inside, there are areas for camping, picnics and canoping. There are 4 viewpoints, 2 of which are easily accessible by 4x4 car, while the others two on top are at 50-minute trek on Cerro Oncol from the road - intermediate difficulty - From the top you have a 360 degree view from which you can enjoy the Ocean, Cordillera, Central Valley, Part of Pilolcura and 11 volcanoes. among the most important:Osorno, Llaima, Tromador.
  • Very nice place for lovers of nature, beautiful landscapes, the route to the top is excellent for a day of hiking outdoors

  • I went the year 2016 and it seemed to me a place as unique and silent, animal noises are heard gratificantemente. The rise is the best of everything and when you reach the top, the view is awesome. I recommend it very beautiful
