There is a nice short walk you can do which takes 2 hours from the park rangers place. We drove there from town which doesn't take long. Basically you follow the trail through the picnic area until the trail splits (there is a sign) and...More

We visited with a local guide, but you could easily go on your own. We hiked the (10k) Carpenteros trail. Quite rough in places, with a number of steep sections. Take binoculars as there is plenty of bird life to see, especially woodpeckers. We arranged...More

This national park is lovely. We took a short boat ride along the Cochrane River to a mirador and walked back from there along a good trail. The views of the River Cochrane were great with the water in the river being crystal clear.

The Reserva offers both short treks and multiple day ones. All with absolutly breathtaking views of the River Cochrane and Lake Cochrane. There is a strong possibility to spot a huemul, the endangered type of deer. In fall the foliage is beautiful.

The reserve is easily accessible from Cochrane. When you are staying in Cochrane, you can walk towards the east out of the city and you will see a sign pointing left towards the dirt road leading to the entrance. It will be about 45 minutes...More

The Tamango Reserve is very close to Cochrane, and offers great opportunities to see the endangered huemul deer - I have seen them there several times. The river is a crazy blue color that looks almost tropical - super beautiful.

the entry fee is 5000CHP, quiet a lot considering the mediocre shape of the trail - this is a hard walk to the lakes. The lagos are very quiet though and the refugio such as a further camping invite for a night under the stars....More

Well worth the drive from Cochrane. We went quite late in the afternoon/early evening, which is the time when the light is at its best for photography. The road from Cochrane is rather bumpy and in some places narrow, fortunately we saw no other cars...More
