The Puyehue National Park offers dozens of walking trails through thick woodland. The woods are home to many native trees unique to this region, such as Coigüe and Arrayán and some interesting flora, including a huge native rhubarb species called Nalca - much coarser than rhubarb and usually enjoyed by Chileans with salt.

Due to volcanic activity in the area, there are many natural hot springs in which to relax and soak in after a walk, with temperatures up to 42 c. You have the option to enjoy the fully equipped pools at Termas de Puyehue Hotel & Spa or the natural water basins of the Termas de Aguas Calientes (or perhaps both).
