Tagua-Tagua Park is located in a portion of the Patagonian Andes where the forest, water and mountains interact as part of an endless cycle of life. Its geographical features have allowed this valley to remain untouched over the years, where natural barriers such as lower Tagua-Tagua Lake and the granite peaks, have protected this beautiful place of human intervention.


Formed millions of years ago, they dominate the landscape, being always a shaping element of the landscape formations left behind by the passage of glaciers. Present along the entire route, they delight us with their snowcapped peaks and granite walls. These yet unexplored.


Source of life ever present in the park, it covers every corner, forming ponds, rivers, waterfalls and meadows. These are areas of high ecological value as flood control areas and as per their high biodiversity. The park is an example of how the water cycle affects the lifetime, collecting the meltdown waters in the main channel which eventually fall taking a giant leap into the lake Tagua-Tagua. These, completely pure and free of contamination, nourish all the living species in the forest.


Unique and evergreen, forest is a shelter unsurpassed for all species that inhabit it. It's here where it ends to understand this amazing cycle of life; a place where each and every one of their representatives, from the largest larch to smaller lichens and from the chucao to the puma play a role. This Valdivian forest Ecoregion representative excels for the extraordinary endemism of the flora: 90% at the species level and 34% at the genus level for seed plants; a very high percentage, unusual worldwide.

Enjoy your Environment


The Tagua Tagua-Park is characterized by having and protecting native flora and fauna. Much of pets like dogs and cats, are carriers of diseases that could eventually spread to native species. Domestic species, guided by their instincts, may attack nests, birds and other native species. Therefore, pets are NOT allowed in the park.


The park, being a protected area, works tirelessly in the conservation of all species that inhabit it. That is why fishing is not permitted in the park. So we leave to Nature life cycles of fish in lake and rivers.


As a place of Conservation camping is not allowed for it has a negative impact on the environment. In order to enjoy an extended stay, 2 shelters were created for our visitors.


The park has hiking trails that go deep into the valley to reach its lakes, waterfalls and viewpoints. To enjoy each of these places we recommend traveling with light luggage. Thus, the experience will be unique and better well used.
