• Parque Metreñehue

    Km 10 Camino a Caburgua, Pucón .

    Within Parque Metreñehue itself there is so much to enjoy. The 4-hectare private park offers space to wander along our hidden trails through native forests and always with views of Villarrica volcano. The park has access to the Trancura River, an outdoor pool and a children’s play area. In addition, you can take part in a unique “forest therapy” activity (Shinrin-Yoku) within the park. This concept involves “bathing yourself in the forest”. It is a slow walk in the forest and river, which will allow you to reconnect with nature and is super beneficial for health and personal well-being.

  • Villarrica volcano

    Volcán Villarrica, Panguipulli, Chile .

    Villarrica ( /ˌviːəˈriːkə/ VEE-ə-REE-kə) (Spanish: Volcán Villarrica, Mapudungun: Ruka Pillañ) is one of Chile's most active volcanoes, rising above the lake and town of the same name, 750 km (470 mi) south of Santiago. It is also known as Rucapillán, a Mapuche word meaning "great spirit's house". It is the westernmost of three large stratovolcanoes that trend NW-SW obliquely perpendicular to the Andean chain along the Mocha-Villarrica Fault Zone, along with Quetrupillán and the Chilean portion of Lanín, are protected within Villarrica National Park. Guided ascents are popular during summer months.

    Villarrica, with its lava of basaltic-andesitic composition, is one of a small number worldwide known to have an active (but in this case intermittent) lava lake within its crater. The volcano usually generates strombolian eruptions with ejection of incandescent pyroclasts and lava flows. Rainfall plus melted snow and glacier ice can cause massive lahars (mud and debris flows), such as during the eruptions of 1964 and 1971.

    Villarrica is one of 9 volcanoes currently monitored by the Deep Earth Carbon Degassing Project. The project is collecting data on the carbon dioxide and sulphur dioxide emission rates from subaerial volcanoes.

  • Trancura River

    Trancura River, Curarrehue, Chile .

    Trancura River (also known as Pucón River or Minetúe River) is a river located in the La Araucanía Region of Chile. Its headwaters drain the southeasternmost portion of Villarrica National Park, including the northwestern slope of Lanín volcano. The river flows initially to the north and from its junction with its main tributary, the Maichín River, the Trancura turns in a westerly direction until emptying into the Villarrica Lake, after having received the waters of Caburgua Lake through Carrileufú River. This latter river emerges at the Ojos del Caburgua and is fed by the Liucura River, which further has as a tributary the outflow stream of Tinquilco Lake.

    The town of Curarrehue is located near its confluence with the Maichín River.

    The river is used for rafting by tourism companies in Pucón.
