  What to do around Pucon

Pucon is one of the centers of outdoor and adventure tourism in southern Chile. Besides the time spent with your spanish courses, there's still the opportunity for a lot of activities.

In organizing tours, we work together with local agencies (e.g. to climb the volcano) and outfitters (e.g. horse riding) so we can find the best provider for each activity. The trails in Huerquehue National Park can be easily explored on your own (a guide can also be arranged). For climbing the volcano Villarrica you need equipment and an experienced mountain-guide. This trek cannot be done without a guide.
As a language school we are not a tourism agency, but we provide as much help as we can. We can supply information about where and when the buses leave and help you book an activity in advance. The prices we quote are approximate and may vary as companies change their rates.

The excursions may be made all year round unless stated otherwise. The prices are per person, including transport, entrance fees, equipment and a local guide.
