Araucanía National Parks

Huerquehue – Trekkers´ Paradise

A-five-hour trek through this stunning national park. Huerquehue has a unique array of fauna and flora including pumas, condors, majestic fir trees and woodpeckers. The trekking route will lead you through reserves of thousand year-old araucania trees and cascading waterfalls. There are beautiful views over to Lake Tinquilco and Volcano Villarrica. Up high, the circuit takes you round three crystal-clear lakes where snowy mountains and forest-covered hillsides stand sentinel over the turquoise waters. In winter, when the park´s 19 lakes freeze over it is a trekker´s paradise. POLITUR´s specialist guide will provide information on the park, and also some local Indian myths.
