Why We Like This Hotel

  • Host to a secluded network of 110km of trails, based within the Valdivian rainforest, and just outside of the volcanic Puyehue National Park, the scope for out-of-this-world type adventuring is phenomenal.
  • Located in Futangue Park, it’s more remote and less crowded than many other options, but it’s still well-connected, with a transfer from Santiago in just three hours, and the opportunity to combine with trips from Puerto Varas to Pucón.
  • Unique and elegant in design, Futangue's exterior is characterised by native wood, while the large communal interior spaces celebrate national artists and the Mapuche culture.
  • Embrace nature photography opportunities, trek or bike in lush meadows and forests, or pass the magical islands of Lake Ranco navigating by kayak or boat.
  • There are great spa facilities with an outdoor lap pool, indoor/outdoor jacuzzi and plenty of lounging areas around the entire hotel.

Parque Futangue was exceptional! Some of the best food / service we had on the entire trip. Spent 2 rainy, moody days taking full advantage of the spa and facilities. Would love to return to experience more of the park. Read the full review

The Futangue Hotel & Spa was one of the most comfortable hotels I've been at. Cristobal the manager is a perfect host. Andres, the designer and engineer of the property was full of so much information about geology, volcanoes, energy generation, water management, hydroelectrics. A genius man and we could have listened to him endlessly. Read the full review

Futangue Hotel boasts a year-round offering of excursions of all kinds. Climb volcanoes, bike through untouched forests, kayak at turquoise waterfalls, sail on pristine lakes, fish for a rare catch, watch birds, or rest in hot springs. Amidst these adventures, enjoy cultural visits to charming local villages.

Most excursions are operated within the reserve, but a selection will take you further afield in the Lake Ranco area. You'll be transported to all start and end points, and will be accompanied by guides throughout the activity. You can choose between full-day excursions with lunch included, or two half-day excursions, returning to the hotel for lunch in between.

Excursions can be booked at the hotel, with guides able to make recommendations. Please note that all excursions are subject to availability and weather conditions.

Hiking & Biking

Hike or bike through the native forests of this private nature reserve to reach Lake Pichi, nestled in an amphitheatre of majestic mountains and waterfalls. Hike to the summit of Cerro Mayo which offers incredible 360° views of snow-capped volcanoes and Lake Ranco, or bike into a remote and almost unexplored river of volcanic lava.

Hikes and bike rides range in difficulty from relaxed to strenuous and duration from a few hours to a full day. Some include transport to the start/end points and others are combined with kayaking or nature spotting and photography. Guides set a pace to suit the individual guests on each trip and will stop along the way to point out details and draw attention to the wildlife.

Kayak trips are available and taking to the water is not only an amazing way to see your surroundings from a different perspective, but to also forge your own way into areas otherwise restricted in access.

Paddle on Lake Pichi, nestled amid lush vegetation and forest-covered mountains. These trips last for half a day and are suitable for beginners.

There’s a huge network of trails in the park that offer fantastic hiking and biking. There’s even a special trail for Darwin frogs, but we saw plenty of them even in areas where they weren’t expected.

About Futangue Hotel


Located in the foothills of the Andes Mountains in the Los Rios Region of Chilean north Patagonia, Hotel Futangue is based in the Valdivian rainforest -one of the most biodiverse rainforests in the world. It’s also close to the volcanoes and lava fields of the Puyehue National Park.

The 110km of world-class trails within the park are predominately used by guests alone - you'll feel that you're the first person to ever experience an area.

Despite its remoteness, Futangue can be reached easily. The transfer from Osorno Airport is just 1½hrs. Flights from Santiago to Osorno are regular and also take 1½hrs. Transfers from other nearby airports are also available. By road, Valdivia is 2hrs and Puerto Montt 2½hrs.
