Day 1: Transfer from Temuco Airport
Transfer to your accommodation in Pucon (approx. 1.5 hours). Choose the style and level of comfort that best suits you from 5* luxury with uninterrupted lake views to small boutique bed and breakfast style accommodation in restored historic houses. For more information visit our Hotels in Pucon page.
Day 2: Day hike
Enjoy a day hike climbing the Villarrica volcano. This perfect cone shaped volcano with its open crater and simmering lava pool makes for the most incredible day hike. The hike can take up to 9 hours but this is very dependant on the time of year. No previous technical experience is necessary just experience of long day hikes. At 2,847 metres, the views from the top are reward enough for the challenge of hiking to the top. Standing on the edge of a smouldering crater, with views north and south of the Andes mountains is a truly unique experience. After the descent return to your hotel to relax.
Day 3: Mountain biking
Today's tour is designed for mountain bikers who want to experience an exciting descent from the base of the Villarrica volcano. We leave from Pucon by truck with our bikes in the back and make our way toward the ski centre. After driving up to the highest possible point, we begin our descent down paths that take us over incredible volcanic terrain with unparalleled views of Pucon and the Villarrica lake below.
Duration: 3 - 4 hrs
Distance: 20 km / 13 miles
Day 4: Rafting trip
Today you can get out and enjoy some rafting on the rivers. It doesn’t matter if you decide to do rafting alto (high) or bajo (low), we can guarantee you will get your adrenaline pumping. During the trip of approximately 1.5 hours you will float down class 4 to 5 (alto) or 3 to 4 (bajo) rapids, passing native forests, waterfalls and the unique landscape of this region. From the first minute, this rafting tour is full of fun and adventure!
