Chile travel

Arauco Territory

Let your imagination run free and feel a special connection with mother nature in the Arauco territory. Its rich Mapuche cosmovision is still practiced both inside their “rukas” (native huts) and the ancient araucaria forests that surround it.

You’ll be able learn about the roots of indigenous peoples on the tours led by them. Learn how to cook pine nut flour, how to weave on a wooden loom and gather blue eggs from their small hens. Discover the healing powers of the plants and try a delicious sopaipilla fried on a wooden stove.

Explore the thick vegetation of the area, which will surprise you with stunning natural settings. Native forests, a beautiful shoreline, rivers and lakes with calm waters framed by the amazing Nahuelbuta mountain range will charm you.

Travel to a magical world virtually untouched by humans on their lonely islands. Practice fly fishing in the streams to catch your own food and relax at the end of your adventure with a wonderful massage with murtilla cream or goat’s milk in one of the spas.
