Trip Details

Day 1: 

Transfer from Temuco Airport to your accommodation in Pucon (approx. 1.5 hours). For your accommodation you are able to 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: 

Today you will enjoy a day hike climbing the Villarica 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:

On this day you can enjoy some mountain biking in the area. This 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 center and 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. Definitely a great way to enjoy the most exciting thing about mountain biking.

Duration: 3-4 hrs Distance: 20 km  / 13 miles  

Day 4: 

Today you can get out and enjoy some rafting on the rivers. It doesn’t matter if you decide to do rafting “alto“ or “bajo“, we can guarantee you will get your adrenaline pumping! During approx. 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 tour is full of fun and adventure!

Day 5: 

You will leave your hotel and take a transfer back to Temuco.

This itinerary is 100% flexible so if you’d prefer more biking and less hiking or more birding and no rafting or perhaps even some kayaking then please just let your Swoop Travel consultant know and they will tailor the trip to your specifications.
