Conserving the Chilean forest

Futangue Park is a native forest conservation project located in northern Patagonia, at the foot of the Andean mountain range. The park is open to the public and offers tourists numerous diverse activities and open-air excursions, based around more than 100 kilometers of hiking trails.

1997 - Beginning of the native forest conservation project

Futangue set up its native forest conservation project in 1997. From the construction of the first trails in the Park, the network gradually grew, running through the deepest part of the Valdivian rainforest to the highest peaks above the Lake Ranco basin, in the XIV Region known as Los Rios, Chile.

The unique experience of reaching impenetrable places and of being able to appreciate nature in its purest form motivated a passion for exploring this area of Andean Patagonia, without its creators realizing at the time just how many marvels were out there to discover.

2005 - The Ranco Foundation is born

The Ranco Foundation is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to protect the native forest, to promote environmental education and to support the local community. The Foundation voluntarily and unreservedly places access to the Park and the use of its infrastructure at the service of the entire community as well as to public and private institutions related to conservation, environmental education, academic investigation and different social initiatives.

2017 - Futangue Hotel & Spa

Three years after opening the Park to the public, the Hotel opened its doors for the first time, to travellers from all over Chile and the rest of the world. The Hotel stands out, not only for its unique position, enveloped in the majestic natural surroundings of the Park, but also because this nature concept is continued and reflected in its architecture, the Spa and the basic ingredients of its delicious gastronomy.
