Tour to Chile: Andean Araucania

About The Tour

Discover the wonders of the Andean Araucania; a spectacular landscape of flora and fauna. It has been protected by the establishment of several national parks; and the first one we shall visit is the Tolhuaca National Park. Though small in size at 6.474 hectares there is much to see; forests to walk through with special species like araucaria (monkey puzzle), tepa and laurel. The Malleco has a mighty waterfall 49 metres tall and within the park are thermal waters springs. 

We will also visit the Congillio National Park; ten times larger than Tolhuaca at 60.832 hectares. It’s name in the local mapuche dialect means ‘water with pine nuts’.  The volcano Llaima dominates the landscape and has created several lakes. Many areas of this park are still unexplored, so come adventure with us!
