LA CAMPANA NATIONAL PARK

OVERVIEW

On this tour, we will explore La Campana National Park, founded in 1967 and located just 100km northwest of Santiago in the Valparaíso region of Chile. Along with the Lago Peñuelas National Reserve, it was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1984 for its importance to the environment, science, education, culture and leisure activities. The park´s name – meaning “the bell” – derives from La Campana mountain, scaled by Charles Darwin in 1834, so-called because of the shape of its peak.

WE RECOMMEND 2 TRAILS:

La Cascada Trail

We will take the opportunity to warm up before the hike, while our tour guide relays information about the terrain of the 80km² park. Of the many paths there, we will take La Cascada (11 km approx.), where we will be able to see wildflowers and butterflies. We will stop at an awe-inspiring viewpoint to gaze out over the Chilean palmas; a tree native to Chile that can grow up to forty meters. In prehistoric times, they covered the entire length of the country, but today, are only found in a few places, such as this park. We’ll eat our box lunch with a view of the 30-meter high waterfall, surrounded by rocks, cacti, and quartz. When we get down, we’ll be able to view animals such as degus, foxes, pumas, chingues (a type of skunk), many different species of birds, and even reptiles.
