Explore the evergreen forest

Sendero del Río

Walk bordering the wooded banks of the Risopatrón river. On this journey, you can discover the intensity of the Patagonian cold forest.

This path was built in a cautious way to not intervene nature, for this, the trees were respected and the river bank was followed, resulting in an incredible path that mixes with nature, where you can fully feel it and observe it.

In this path you can see a large number of birds and large trees, some with more than 100 years. On the way we can see large Coigues, Tepas and the reddish Arrayanes. Surely observe the curious Chucao, or the coveted Magellanic Woodpecker, among other birds. Being this path on the edge of the Risopatrón River, it was necessary to build around 36 small wooden bridges, since the river changes its flow and course practically every winter. There is a very special footbridge that crosses the Risopatrón river through the treetops. It is practically part of the trees.

Sendero Laguna los Pumas

This lagoon is located at the top of a hill located in the Queulat National Park, 5 km south of the Lodge along the Carretera Austral is the beginning of this path. The path winds up by the hill slope until it reaches a small gate, where the lagoon is located. Due to the height, the morphology of the forest of this place, changes substantially compared to the cold jungle, which commonly adorns the landscapes of the area. So it is possible to appreciate the different types of vegetation in the area, based on the height. This is considered a highly difficult trail due to its elevation, it is mainly made up of steps, which are quite high, so it is not recommended for someone with knee difficulties. It's possible to appreciate even more diversity of flora and fauna in the area as it is a longer trail.
