UNFORGETTABLE HORSE TREKS.

“I have always felt that there is nothing better than travelling by horse. One's journey consists
of countless different arrivals. You come to a crossroads, at a flower, a tree, a brook, the top
of a mountain, an unusual-looking rock. It's almost as though the trail itself creates a series
of delightful little surprises in order to captivate the spirit of the traveller”. (Atahualpa Yupanqui)
To feel nature on the back of a horse is a special experience.
You will travel along ancient animal herder tracks, you will meet fascinating people who appear
to come from a different period of history. All of the horse treks take place in native forest.
If you are lucky, you will be able to see native birds such as woodpeckers, tricahues or even
the great condor itself. Advance booking recommended.








RADAL SIETE TAZAS NATIONAL PARK

Without a shadow of a doubt the best known attraction of our area are the Siete Tazas.
These pools of turquoise-coloured water are situated in what was once a river of lava!
It's an intriguing spot where the water hasn't been able to wear away the black volcanic rock.
The trail ends at the viewing platform of the waterfall the “Salto de la Leona”.
If you are feeling super adventurous you can go down to swim in the waterfall's plunge pool,
but you'll have to access it by way of the river, which isn't all that straightforward.
Striking colours can be seen in both summer and winter.








LOS MAQUIS WATERFALL.

45-metre high waterfall located within our property. In order to get there, you will have
to go on a short hike of medium-level difficulty. Ideal for those who want to visit a
spectacular spot right on the doorstep of our cabins. The view is particularly impressive
in winter and spring, when there is more water flowing. 18 years ago a massive flood left
a tree trunk buried in the middle of the plunge pool, leaving the spot with a somewhat
iconic look to it.






SENDERO MALACARA.

Self-guided hike that starts in the Parque Inglés sector of the national park, at the CONAF office.
One of the few publically-accessible places where one can appreciate the magnificent
Austrocedrus chilensis, a species of cypress tree that grows in this part of the Andes mountains.
The final part of this walk has a wooden platform offering a stunning view of the mighty Río Claro, Centuries ago, this area was an important route for the indigenous Chiquillanes people when
they were crossing the mountains to and from Argentina. There is a lovely, picnic/beach area
at the end of the route, at a location where three fast-flowing streams meet.
Along the route there are educational display panels which give you fascinating information
about the place. Duration: half-day round trip.
