Rare beauty with several trails and tucked away campsites. Would have liked to walk more of the trails but the steep staircases were tricky in wet weather. The sendero Los alerces is a highlight...to see trees over 3000 years old simply incredible. An outdoor paradise

The park is not famous because it is difficult to access to it. I did Sendero Cacadas route. It took me 3 hours. The route is medium: not easy but not too much difficult to walk. The camping site is in a good condition. I...More

We booked a night in the expensive cabañas in this park and they are certainly worth the money for beauty and proximity to the park, the food in the cafe was excellent too. The problem was with the hikes in the park. After our night...More
