Description

Patagonia National Park is located on the very south end of Chile, on the border with Argentina. It was declared a national park in 2018 and integrates the surface of the former Lago Jeinimeni National Reserve and the former Lago Cochrane National Reserve (Tamango). The park landscape consists of many different ecosystems including mountains, glaciers, grasslands, riparian forests, and wetlands that are home to extensive flora and fauna. Throughout the park you will find numerous trails of different levels of difficulty. You can also find several camping sites in the different sectors. Plan your route in advance since both some trails and camping services are not enabled all year round, they only work from October to April. Those of the Valle Chacabuco sector and Jeinimeni sector are open from October to April. The Tamango sector is open all year round.

Length: 10.5 mi • Est. 5 h 39 m
This hike follows the Avillas river upstream to a suspension bridge and returns on the other side. There are pretty steep inclines on this trail and the narrow trail follows a couple of ledges on very steep hills, so definitely not for people with fear of heights. This route can also be extended into a point-to-point but continuing north to the Jeinemeni Trail.Show more

This follows the road up to the viewpoint. The road is not passable without a high clearance vehicle. You won't need 4x4 though, at least not for the first 3km. If you have a regular car, park at the campsite and hike up. The view at the end is incredible. Please note that Patagonia Park is only open October - April annually.Show more
