Fodor's Review

On the Pacific coast, about a three-hour drive from Osorno, is a network of indigenous parks spread over nine Huilluiche Indian communities amid 50,000 hectares of pristine temperate rainforest. Day trips include a sail up the coast to visit a Huilluiche settlement. The eight-person boat leaves from Bahía Mansa, but keep an eye on the weather as the boat won’t run if it’s really windy. Exploring the indigenous parks by land is a more intrepid trip, although trekking,

horseback rides, and homestays (simple, basic accommodations) with descendants of the Huilluiche, are possible. Nature lovers will appreciate the native alerce forest as you cross the Chilean Coastal Range, home to 30 different bird species and an equal number of mammals, including the Molina’s hog-nosed skunk, mountain monkeys, and pumas. A highlight for those going by water is the beautiful, white-sand Condor Beach.
