Native Chilean palm trees are beautifully showcased at the La Campana National Park, a World Biosphere Reserve located close to Valparaiso.
You might be fortunate enough to spot the magnificent puma that stalks furtively throughout the Andes Mountains. Perhaps you’ll be rewarded in the south with a glimpse of native deer species; the elusive pudu, the world’s smallest deer, or the majestic huemul.
