“Loved the park and loved staying at the Refugio Tinquilco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We thought that the park was one of the nicest areas we hiked in in the Lake District in Chile. The Lake Loop trail is wonderful, especially if you get an early start in the morning before the majority of day trippers start out. We also enjoyed the incredible hospitality of Patricio at the Refugio Tinquilco and suggest booking several nights with him! We stayed two and should have stayed more.

“Excellent day hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Excellent day hike past a series of mountain lakes at increasing altitudes. The entire circuit is quite strenuous but you can go as far as your fitness or time allows and it is still worthwhile.

“Beautiful views and waterfalls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

While visiting friends in the area, we went for a beautiful hike into the park - to get some exercise as well as to see some waterfalls - it was amazingly beautiful - remember to look back as you climb or you may miss a view of the Villarica volcano!

“Great hiking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Even in the rain, this was a nice hike. I am 50+ years old in fairly good shape,but with a few "worn spots" and I enjoyed the well maintained trails and had no trouble keeping up with the younger, fitter, members of our group. Don't miss the waterfall for great photos!
