If you have an adventurous spirit and don’t mind a bit of mud, Pucón, Chile, is calling your name. Tucked away next to a serene lake and a scenic volcano, the town is a popular destination for adrenaline junkies and sports tourism. You’ll be overwhelmed by the number of tour operators and full-day adventure programs, including snow skiing and snowboarding, white water rafting, canyoning, kayaking, horseback riding, natural hot springs, ziplining and skydiving.

 

The striking natural surroundings range from waterfalls and lakes to rainforest nature reserves and mountainous regions.

 

Villarrica Volcano

This active volcano is part of the Pacific Ring of Fire and is open to climb year-round. Strap on your hiking boots and head to the top to see views of at least seven surrounding lakes.

 

White Beach

Known as “Playa Blanca” to Chileans, this beach on the shores of Caburga Lake is a lesser-known hideaway compared to the overcrowded Pucón beach. You’ll fall in love with the clear water and surrounding trees at first sight.

 

El Cañi

El Cañi is a series of hiking trails through ancient volcanic craters and lagoons. You just may spot foxes and pumas on your trek through the park.

 

Volcanic Cave Tours

Visitors can book a tour to explore one of Pucón’s volcanic caves that lay 1,300 feet underground. Put on your headlamp and prepare to be wowed by the volcanic caves formed by lava eruptions and glaciers.
