Jewel-blue streams, cascading waterfalls, dazzling glaciers and spectacular wildlife. Welcome to Patagonia. Easily one of the most awe-inspiring geological spectacles on earth, it is home to some of the most staggeringly beautiful protected areas of wildlife in the world. Located at the southern end of South America, between Chile and Argentina, this sparsely populated region is not far from being the 8th wonder of the world. As a result, it is no surprise that many bucket lists include trekking through the fjords and glacier-filled sceneries of Patagonia. Attracting travellers from all around the globe, the top highlights and tourist hotspots are the Torres Del Paine National Park in Chile, and Argentina’s Los Glaciares National Park.
On the face of it, Pucón may seem like just a sleepy picturesque town nestled in the heart of Chile’s lake district on the shores of Lake Villarrica. With its quaint wooden buildings and panoramic views of the imposing Villarrica volcano, you may be fooled into thinking that Pucón is known for its aesthetics and little else. In reality, this charming facade hides Chile’s biggest adventure tourism hub!
