This year we spent Christmas in the Conguillío National Park and New Year in the Huerquehue National Park in the Araucanía region in the South of Chile. In both places we staid in a cabin right in the park. This allowed us to extensively explore both parks by foot and car while enjoying the comfort of a cabin in the middle of nature. The cabin in the Conguillío park was located in a beautiful forest of Araucaria trees close to the Conguillío lake and with a view of the Llaima volcano from the terrace. The cabin in the Huerquehue park was located in a dense forest of Southern Beech trees and within a 5-minutes walk to our private beach at the Tinquilco lake.
Have a look at some impressions from both parks in this picture gallery and these panoramas.
We wish you all the best for a Happy New Year 2019.
