Lava fields, cloud forest, araucaria trees, waterfalls...what a wonderful place to visit! We were there only a few hours, and had to choose what to see. You could go back for many visits and be enchanted each time!

Great rain forrest with huge and very old trees as well as big Lava fields. We recommend entering from the north entrance (with 4x4) and crossing the park north to south. We liked the northern part of the park more.

Accessible and easily suited to both long and short trips, this park has an almost lunar landscape with the black lava fields contrasting against the snowy peaks. The forests are ancient, the lakes are deadly still, and if you are lucky you will glimpse the...More
