Araucanía offers an almost endless list of outdoor activities in the beautiful landscape of forests, lakes, rivers and volcanoes that extends from Pucón towards the Andes. One of these volcanoes is Sollipulli, a popular ski resort, with a crater covered by a glacier that’s 6km wide and 600m deep. Nearby lies Huesquefilo Lagoon, surrounded by an ancient Araucaria forest, which offers photogenic views up to Sollipulli’s snowy peak. A perfect hike takes visitors from the town of Melipeuco southward toward Sollipulli, through lush meadows and shady forests, up to the higher ground with its pines and Coigüe trees, where a memorable view awaits – one the Mapuche have been appreciating for centuries.
