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 an hour away from the city center.

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 we couldn't do the big hike to the top, maybe you can see more from... 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 want to spend the extra. The hiking trails were well laid out but there didn't... More

A great day for a family outing with easy trails, a great canopy line (for additional cost) with 4 super high and long line, and also good camping sites to stay or have a picnic. Clean bathrooms available as well as basic coffee shop. Would have appreciated that the guides were more expressive and passionate about the place, telling us... 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 person. Once you arrive the park doesn't have traditional hiking trails. You drive from trail... More

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 and the volcanos of Argentina to the east including beautiful Volcan Lanin.
