Pucón is an outdoorsy town with unlimited natural beauty and plenty of adventure, even on cloudy or rainy days! This glacier trek in the Araucanía region of Chile is one of those activities that can be enjoyed rain or shine. After several hours on the Pichillancahue Glacier, we will soak in the one-of-a-kind Geometric Hot Springs. Whatever the weather, these renowned hot springs are always the perfect way to end the day.
We will spend our today together just southeast of the famous Villarrica Volcano. Since this area is almost always protected from cloud cover and rain, we will able to enjoy a leisurely walk through through the lush forest of the ancient araucaria trees as we make our way to the Pichillancahue Glacier.
The Pichillancahue Glacier has been nicknamed “cloudy glacier”. Volcanic ash covers most of its surface, giving it a somewhat “cloudy” look. As we make our way higher and higher on the glacier, this gray color will become increasingly more apparent. Not to worry, however. This gray color will not dull your spirit!
Throughout this tour, we will see breathtaking views of the nearby volcanoes including Lanín, Quetrupillán and Mocho-Choshuenco. The proximity of these volcanoes has created a unique array of flora and fauna, which we will also be able to observe throughout our trek!
Our time together will not end here, however! A relaxing bath in the most beautiful hot springs in the area awaits!
The Geometric Hot Springs are located within a natural gorge and feature 20 pools with temperatures between 37 – 45 degrees Celsius. These unique hot springs encompass more than 60 sources of pure thermal water and are connected by a 450 meter walkway. To top it off, these hot springs are surrounded by abundant vegetation, native forests and even waterfalls! Some say it’s like heaven on Earth.
