You can visit Futangue at any time of the year, however you should be aware of the changes in opening hours and entrance regulations according to the seasons, as some paths are not always accessible. During low season the doors at all entrance points are kept closed; it is imperative therefore that a booking is made in advance.
No, it is forbidden to camp. There are alternative camping options in Riñinahue, which is 2 kilometers away from the Visitors’ Center. Go to the ‘Where to stay’ section.
The general rule is that between December and March, visits can be made without booking in advance, via the Riñinahue entrance and only during January and February can you enter via the Cerro Mayo entrance. At any other time during the year, it is necessary to make a booking; otherwise all access points will be closed.
Simple! Send an electronic mail to [email protected], indicating the number of people and the day of the visit. We advise that during the low season, you confirm your visit by calling (+56 9) 519 70972 between 09:00 and 20:00 hrs, with at least 24 hours’ notice. We ask for your understanding if you aren’t able to get through immediately, as unfortunately the signal is still very weak in this area. We will always return your call.
The entrance ticket allows access to numerous different self-guided paths and is valid for an entire day.
Futangue is an attractive Park to visit during any of the four seasons. Each of them surprises you with their relative landscapes and the different experiences you correspondingly discover; from walks with snowshoes through the snow-laden forests in winter, to photographing the spectacular colors of the Lenga trees in autumn, to going out on a fly fishing trip during the spring or making the most of the summer by venturing into the Valdivian rain forest.
The majority of the guided expeditions can be reserved online during the season in which the particular expedition is available. You just have to go to the menu for each expedition and click on ‘Book now’.

In Futangue there is any number of different excursions available, depending on the time of year and the weather conditions.
The Park contains a network of more than 100km of trails for hiking and mountain biking, which spans one of the most impressive and well-conserved temperate forests you will ever have access to. You will also be able to appreciate the beautiful lagoons and mountain peaks, together with spectacular views across to the volcanoes of the Patagonian Andes. The landscape also offers large lava fields, rivers and stunning waterfalls. Another of the principal characteristics belonging to the Park is the abundant biodiversity of flora and fauna. Take a look at our photo gallery.
