The shuttle companies at Temuco’s Airport are called TransAraucania and Survip. They have a counter at the airport and they offer regular and private shuttles to Pucón at $80.000 CLP.

This wonderful circuit can be done by pedaling for seven days, from North to South. This 7-day cycling adventure will take you to Chile’s Lake and Volcano District, you’ll discover a fascinating scenery: blue/green lakes, amazing active volcanoes, snow-capped peaks, green meadows and stunning lakes.

One of the greatest pleasures in life is traveling and seeing new places, and if you do it on a bicycle, the experience can be transformed into something different and unforgettable.

DAY 2 – Pucón to Panguipulli

From Pucón you will start cycling direction South East, you will discover El Carmelito and Los Chilcos Beaches on Lake Villarrica´s shore, start your cycling journey  heading to Panguipulli.

There are many cool things you can enjoy there, but be sure to stop at:

– Montaña Mágica Lodge,  nestled in the thick jungles of Chile’s Huilo Natural Reserve (home to the Huilo-Huilo Falls, Pudu, the world’s smallest deer species, and the longest zip line system in South America), the Montaña Mágica Lodge is a fantastical waterfall/hotel/volcano that looks like it was built by ambitious hobbits. 

– Termas Geometricas a Japanese-inspired labyrinth of hot springs that is hidden in the forest, a stunning maze of red planks that wind through the trees like something out of a mythological Japanese wonderland. Suspended over a flowing stream, the red  walkways leading to the various pools are made entirely of wood that stands out in stark contrast to the surrounding wilderness. There are 17 pools in total at the spa, each of them fed directly from a natural hot spring via wooden pipes that run beneath the walkways.

DAY 3 – Panguipulli to Los Lagos

The Panguipulli Lake is one of the Seven Lakes in the southern Chile. Of glacial origin, it is enclosed by mountain ranges of the Andes, on all sides except the west, where the town of Panguipulli lies in the Central Valley. The lake is drained by the Enco River that flows south to Riñihue Lake.

You will continue South East heading to Los Lagos. On your left side you will still see Lake Panguipulli and then, Lake Rinihue, Mocho Choshuenco Volcano, Huilo Huilo Reserve and San Pedro´s river will be following you on your right, parallel to T-39 road.

DAY 4 – Los Lagos to Futrono

Take T55 Route you will enjoy Mocho Choshuenco Volcano at your left and Lago Ranco at your righ side.

The commune of Futrono hugs the northern shore of Lake Ranco. The sister town of Ranco is opposite the lake, and both towns rest within the base of the Andes Mountains in the Region of Rivers of Chile. Futrono’s local ancestral culture is a mixture of Mapuches-Huilliches, whom still live in the commune to this day. “Huilliche” means “Southern people” in Mapundungun (the language of the Mapuche people).

The Huilliche people were experts in foraging, hunting, fishing and animal husbandry. These activities allowed them to live a majorly sedentary lifestyle, where they could focus on developing their culture principally in the arts (textiles and craftsmanship) and cuisine.

The Huilliches are geographically concentrated in lakes Maihue and Ranco, both located in the pre-mountain range of the Andes and connected through the Calcurrupe river.

In Futrono, one can enjoy the following activities:
• Canopy activities within nature.
• Trekking through natural trails.
• Horseback through natural trails.
• Recreational fishing and tourism, guests can also opt to fly fish! Among the main species that are abundant in the rivers in the area we can find Rainbow Trout, Cold Trout, Perca Trucha, and the Chilean Silverside.
