This is a great wilderness area of forest with birdlife and ferns. There is a small camp site and one or two lookout towers from which you can see the city of Valdivia on its inlet to the south, the Pacific Ocean to the west...More

This is not your average hiking park. First the drive to it is over gravel roads and although the park is close to Valdivia will take an hour plus to arrive as you have to go quite slowly. Park entrance fees are 3,000 pesos per...More

I have been at the park plenty of time. Infrastructure is good. Given that near-virgin forest is found at so many other places (e.g. Reserva Punta Curiñanco) I consider that tourists that have done a good research should visit other places too which have types...More

We spent there 1 day and it was a great time. There you can find several 25-30min trekkings and beautiful views. The entrance fee is 5000 CLP for foreigners.

Very beautiful park consisting of real native untouched woods. With great views at the miradors, over the sea and over the land. You need a good day to discover all.

If you like the forest and nature, is a must go. You will find beautiful "selva valdiviana" with easy trails for all ages. The walk to the top will take 1,5 hour aprox and it is totally worth it On top of that, your half...More

You should take the way over the "Ruta del mar" from niebla. It's so beautiful with some miradors on the way. We enjoyed that way along the coast a lot. The park itself was ok but not that special. The short hikes were interesting, unfortunately...More

Drove to the site and then walked to the summit through the forest. There are lookouts at the top and you can see several volcanoes if the weather is suitable. The forest is nice enough just not great.

It is a long, steep drive to get there, but worth every minute. I am not a big hiker, but these trails make me feel totally alive! Great for family. Terrific terrain. Amazing view from the top.

The only option to get there was either to rent a car or pony up the 15000 chilean pesos per person which is what we did. I liked the park and would have loved try the 'canopy' as that's supposed to be great but didn't...More
