You are invited to reengage with the pristine nature among the intense green of the forest of the south of Chile. Explore at leisurely pace the depths of the Valdivian rainforest and come to get along and learn about the species that live in our millenarian forests of the north Patagonia and Magallanes.

 

Due to the characteristics of the climate, like the high humidity, this area has a vast diversity and abundance of flora which allow the existence of a wide variety of fauna. This region is highlighted by the presence large forests of perennial species of trees with bright leafs of dark green color. The most remarkable species are gigantic Coigües, Lengas, Ñirres and Roble Magallánico, along with younger species like the Canelo, Arrayán, Calafate and Maqui.

 

Worth to mention is the Alerce (Fitzroya Cupressoides), protected endemic tree, highly threatened by its illegal logging. Its slow growth (1mm every 3 years) and the longevity of species still living (almost 4 thousand years) become a stunning phenomena.
