Pucon Travel Guide

Pucon is a pretty resort town situated on Lake Villarica, set against the looming backdrop of the live Villarrica Volcano. The town has excellent tourist infrastructure and is one of Chile's most popular domestic holiday destinations. Surrounded by one private park and two national parks, Pucon is the focus of the Lake District's adventure tourism industry and is a growing centre for outdoor sports including hiking, kayaking, whitewater rafting, windsurfing, horseback riding and mountain biking. More relaxing outdoor activities in Pucon include fishing, birdwatching, soaking up the sun on the lakeshore, or bathing in the nearby hot springs.In the winter months, skiing and snowboarding in Pucon are the major attractions, and the resort is one of the few places in the world where visitors can ski on a live volcano. Travellers should note, however, that although the conspicuous activity of the Villarrica Volcano is delightful in some ways, it also means that adventures on the slopes of the volcano are sometimes suspended due to the volcanic activity. The last serious eruption was in March 2015.
