Chile Creates Largest Marine Reserve in the Americas
The newly protected waters around the Desventuradas Islands contain many marine species found nowhere else on Earth.
In the middle of the mountains, where hills and gorges enclose several crystal-clear lakes and lagoons set among the araucarias, you’ll find the Huerquehue National Park.
When walking along its trails, you’ll come across several lagoons inside the park such as the Verde Lake, known for its deep emerald green color. If you pay attention, you’ll be able to see firsthand the many species that live in the area.
Enjoy the amazing views as you hike through the park and stop to contemplate the Toro Lake surrounded by exuberant nature. To rest, take advantage of the camping sites available or recharge your batteries in the nearby cities of Pucón and Villarrica.
