Fodor's Review

This classic fishing spot in Aysen is filled with waterfalls tumbling down steep canyon walls. A lovely waterfall called the Cascada de la Virgen is a 1-km (½-mile) hike from the information center, and another called the Velo de la Novia is 8 km (5 miles) farther. About 1 km from Coyhaique, along the banks of the Simpson River, you can also see the Piedra del Indio, a rock shaped in the profile of an indigenous individual. Get to the park via the highway that connects

Coyhaique with Puerto Aysen; the park entrance is 32 km (20 miles) northeast of Coyhaique.
