Located 790km south of Santiago and 112km from Temuco, Pucón has developed into a “boutique” lake-side village and a very popular place during the summer break months of January and February. In fact, today, it is saturated during the months of both January and February and if you have the option try to visit outside of these two months. The area to the east of the lake is spectacular. The lake itself is bordered by rolling hills that rise up into mountainous terrain on the north-eastern quarter, and by the magnificent conical, snow-covered (at its summit) and active Villarrica Volcano on the southern side. This zone is a haven for those who like outdoor pursuits such as: white water rafting, climbs to the top of the volcano, hikes into the national park, mountain biking, skiing in winter, fishing and boating; and for those who prefer a slower pace there is golf, walking and hot springs to unwind in! You can participate in as many or few of the activities available or just sit back and read a good book! It is also an ideal place where you can do nothing and just relax and enjoy wonderful scenery. Experience Chile offers a high-end all-inclusive option here where the accommodation and food are “top-end” and excursions are accompanied with educated guides, or we can include other hotels, with stunning views to the lake, under a bed and breakfast program.
The drive time from Santiago is usually around nine hours. However, flying from Santiago to Temuco is only 1.5hrs or less and from here you can drive to Pucón, which will take 1.5hrs or less.
Climbing Villarrica Volcano, in the winter – skiing down the same volcano; swimming in Lake Villarrica, horse riding, hiking, hot spring baths at Termas de Huiffe or Termas Geometrica (and others), white-water rafting the Tabancura river, fly fishing, sailing and a number of other adrenalin-pumping options. Visits to numerous National Parks and other lakes in the area.
In summer months (December, January, February), shorts, short-sleeved shirts, something warmer for cool evenings and cooler nights. Always bring alternative clothes in the event the temperature cools right down. Rain jackets, outdoor shoes or boots (not city shoes). Sun glasses, hat, sun-protection cream. The usual summer weather here is similar to that of the UK in the summer.
