We will visit the rucas (houses) and have the chance to get to know traditional clothing, musical instruments.
DAY 2 FD TREKKING LANIN
On the border between Chile and Argentina and on the foothills of the Lanin Volcano, we invite you to come on a beautiful trek surrounded by Araucaria trees and Andean lagoons. This is a fantastic trek that doesn’t require previous experience or even that you be in good physical shape as most of the walk is over flat, rolling hills and under the cover of trees.
DAY 3: FD GEOMETRIC HOT SPRINGS
We will our way towards the towns of Lican Ray and Conaripe before driving up a gravel road towards the Geometric Hot Springs. These springs, anciently called Cajon Negro, are immersed within the majestic beauty of the Villarrica National Park. These are the result of an ambitious project carried out by the architect German del Sol, who, by using only wood and noble materials sought to take nature into geometry so as to achieve a harmonious whole. You will enjoy resting in these therapeutic waters and then have lunch in the covered rustic kitchen with a wood fire to keep you warm.
