La Ruta de los Parques

Hike Alerce Andino

Interpretative Hike National Park Alerce Andino

Alerce Andino National Park is located between mountains, volcanoes and the Pacific Ocean. This full-day excursion will take us along the coast to the beginning of the Carretera Austral. Here, we will hike for approximately 5 hours inside the park, surrounded by the exuberant temperate rainforest, including the old Alerce trees (Fitzroya Cupressoides). You’ll see the transformation of these mountains throughout millions of years, and the resulting landscape of rivers, waterfalls and lagoons.

During the drive to the park we will make stops at local villages along the coast and to admire the ocean view of Reloncavi Sound known as “the gateway to Patagonia”.
