Sleep in a ruca and spend time with the Mapuche people to get an up-close look at the lifestyle of the largest indigenous ethnic group of the country. Partake in the traditional activities and rituals of the Lafkenche people, the specific name for the group of people who inhabit this area of the country.
Listen to a first-hand account of their world view, learn about their traditional medicine by visiting their garden, and participate in culinary workshops. You can also have fun with the exciting landscapes and tours on or around the lake such as kayaking, boat tours, and horseback riding.
A ruca is the traditional dwelling of the Mapuche people, built with materials found in the environment in which it is located. It is typically round or oval-shaped, and only has one main entrance that opens towards the east.
