Around and about Pucón there are many national parks and reserves where you can enjoy a full day trekking, or even follow a circuit and camp overnight. Huerquehue National Park, Villarrica National Park, El Cañi Reserve are in all the guidebooks and will never fail to delight.

However, there exists a little-known wilderness on the road towards Argentina where you can enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and Araucaria forests, as well as spotting wildlife that is curious to take a look at those who dare to step off the beaten track.

4 Lagos Andinos Sol y Nieve Pucon

This area, called Puesco, is actually part of the Villarrica National Park, though it is far from the main entrance located close to Pucón from where you can access the full day Villarrica volcano hike. Officially known as the Andean Lake Circuit, to reach the area you leave Pucón towards Curarrehue, the centre of the local Mapuche community. After around 40 minutes the mountains seem ever closer and you can begin to appreciate the spectacular rock formations called Las Peinatas (The Haircombs) and Colmillo del Diablo (Devil's Molar).

A Sol y Nieve day tour to do the Andean Lake Trek will stop at the Conaf information center to take a look at the small flora and fauna museum before continuing on to the Momolluco waterfalls and Quillelhue Lagoon. Both have viewpoints where you will stop for photos and also to fully absorb the magnificence of the mountains and rock formations.

By this point of the day you will be really close to the border with Argentina and are at the very bottom of the imposing Lanin volcano. A short walk will take you to the physical Argentine-Chilean border where we will see a Christ Redeemer statue that is testimony to the close relations between these two Andean countries.

From there you will continue onto the Huinfiuca Lagoon trail which is relatively short and appropriate for all ages and fitness levels. At what seems like a private beach on the shores of the lagoon you will enjoy our picnic lunch with the Lanin volcano overlooking the well-deserved sojourn.

After some time to enjoy the peace and the silence of Huinfiuca, you will leave the majestic mountains behind but will stop in Curarrehue at the cultural center and handicraft market to learn more about the traditions of this ancestral community before returning to Pucón.

This full day excursion that unites culture and nature allows both an insight into the local community as well as offering optimum chances to spot local fauna such as the Magellanic Woodpecker.

Well worth factoring into your stay in Pucón! To book in advance contact Sol y Nieve here. We look forward to welcoming you to showing you the lost wilderness away from the crowds!
