Waterfalls, rivers, valleys and luscious vegetation are all to be found in the Alerce Andino National Park. Explore it all with this guided trekking experience.

Alerce Andino National Park Trek

At 9 am, we'll come and pick you up from your hotel in Puerto Varas and we'll head south, bordering the Reloncaví Estuary. An hour later we'll reach Lenca, and its old logging route will lead us to the Alerce Andino National Park.

Once we reach the park, we'll start our guided trek. For approximately 3 hours we'll hike through vegetation full of ulmo, guindo, Chilean myrtle and hazel trees, as well as countless more tree species and flora. You'll become a true expert!

On the trek, we'll also border Chaiquenes lagoon and Triángulo lagoon and we'll pass by the River Chaica to admire the wonderful Chaica waterfalls. Do you know why these waterfalls are so famous? You'll find out on the day!

After a brief rest to replenish our energy (we'll give you delicious picnic boxes), we'll continue our trek past one of the symbols of this national park; the age-old larch tree. You'll be surprised to find out how old this tree is, and wait till you see how big it is!

Our guided trek of the Alerce Andino National Park will end where it started, and from there we will return to Puerto Varas and drop you back at your hotel at around 2 pm.
