Considered as the adventure capital of Chile, the area around Pucón offers myriad outdoor activities such as rafting, hiking, skiing, kayaking, and fly-fishing. Adventure activities aren’t the only option here, though – hot springs, national parks, volcanoes, mountains, and lakes create one of the most beautiful natural stings Chile has to offer. The area is also home of the Mapuche, Chile’s main ethnic group. Their culture is very much alive in the area, through cuisine, traditions, and language. The word ‘Mapuche’ literally means “people of the earth“. This ancient civilization has gone through a difficult history, continually facing opposition, but they have remained free and independent. Mapuche art is known for its beautiful metalwork, especially silver jewellery such as headdresses and necklaces as well unique wooden carvings. They also have an ancient tradition of weaving textile and carpets.
