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!
Have you ever gone trekking? If so, you’re sure to agree that trekking enables you to experience a new way of life, surrounded yourself with nature, and meet new people. Even when it doesn’t go exactly as planned, or you get lost, it always makes for a memorable or exciting story to look back on.
If you’ve never trekked before, a great place to start is La Parva in Santiago, as it has gentle slopes, flat terrain, and doesn’t require any technical skills.
What’s there to do in Santiago? That seems to be a question I hear often. Everyone talks about traveling to Valparaiso, Viña del Mar, or Arica, and although those are interesting places to visit, Santiago also has great places to explore, especially if you want to get in touch with nature and take a break from city life.
What makes Bariloche so attractive?
San Carlos de Bariloche, a small city with a very European style to it in the midst of the impressively green National Park Nahuel Huapi and by the shoreline with the same name has become one of Argentina’s top tourist destinations. Combining the incredible views of stunning nature with a town full of character, it attracts thousands of tourists every year who come to enjoy both summer and winter activities in the Lake Districts.
