1. Up and Down At Volcano Villarrica

2. Huerquehue National Park Exploration

What can an adrenaline jerk find in a national park exploration?

The Huerquehue National Park in Pucon has a little bit of danger for you.

Long hiking through the park under the ancient Araucaria trees, passing the clearest lakes and the springs, getting up to the peaks of the mountains.

You can reach a waterfall and it’s even more adventurous in wet weather when it’s muddy and slippery.

3. Horse Ride

Horse riding is actually not so safe. 

We used to think that horses are nice and trained. 

Nevertheless, they can notice a yummy leaf somewhere in the mountains and take you for an adrenaline ride. 

But there is no better way to enjoy the incredible views of Pucon other than riding a horse.
