The Alerce Andino National Park is part of the Biosphere Reserve temperate rain forests of Southern Andes and has an area of 39,255 hectares/97,002 acres. You will hike through a forest of “canelos” trees and continue to towards the falls of Chaica River, through the forest of larch and other tree species, ferns, and lichens. You'll even pass by "Millennial Larch",  a larch tree more than 2,000 years old. Along the way, you may see many mammals, birds, and fish including deer, pumas, guiñas (a type of cat), and monito del monte (tiny marsupial), Magellanic woodpecker, kingfishers, and the Harris ́s hawk. Stop to eat your box lunch and admire the surrounding nature before returning along the same path (round trip 8km/5mi) before returning to Puerto Varas.

Everything was amazing! The planning with Adventure Life went smoothly. The actual trip was fantastic! One of the best trips I have experienced. The cruise staff members were knowledgeable and attentive. I will be writing more about this on the blog!
