Beautiful 5-7 hours trek in the middle of forest full of araucarias and beautiful views. If you go, try to arrive early and to the complete circuit (7-8 hours for experienced hikers).

Had an awesome walk to the blue lake on a recent trip to Chile. Walk is fairly easy and swim at the end is definitely worthwhile.

I know that there was a time when it was possible to fly to Pucón but for what I know that is not the case now. The best alternative is to fly to Temuco and then take a transfer to Pucón that is 90 minutes away.
