Located in the heart of “Araucanía”, in Chile’s Lake District, the homeland of the courageous Mapuche people, breath-taking glacial lakes mirror the frosted tips of volcanoes and lush flora decorates national parks. Once a war ground, this area stretching over 99km2 (38 mi2), saw the Mapuche people resisting the advances of Inca and Spanish invaders. Thriving farmlands transformed into a tranquil tourist mecca, where a colourful intricately woven tapestry of quaint villages, such as Pucon are sprawled along the shores of the Villarrica Lake, near the active Villarrica Volcano. Evergreen rainforests, sparkling lakes and massive Araucaría (or monkey puzzle) trees, some over 1 000 years old, add to the idyllic landscape waiting to be explored. This region is both the gateway to Patagonia, and a thrilling adventure haven.
