Puerto Montt Alerce Andino National Park Excursion Reviews

This national park celebrates -- and protects -- the endangered alerce tree, all but extinct except in this 153-square-mile national preserve. Similar to giant sequoias in California, with some as old as 4,000 years, alerce was used to build houses and other structures in the region, and the forests were seriously depleted.
Lake cruise was peaceful with views of Volcanoes and bushland.

This port is of the most interest to hikers, bicyclists, climbers and other outdoor/nature enthusiasts as there is nothing for typical tourists to see other than one of Chile’s national parks which is very picturesque and has some very attractive rock formations in and around a strong flowing stream with an area of non-navigatable rapids which they refer to as a waterfalls. The park is in the process of building an attractive welcome center which will be a nice addition. The park is a +1-hour drive from Puerto Mont so a questionable decision to make the trip. Along the way you may get to see a volcano in the far distance. It seems like the mornings are cloudy with gray skies so the afternoon is the best hope for the sun burning through to see blue skies which give a nice contrast to the mountains. If we ever went back to Puerto Mont on a cruise we would not get off the ship. Read Less
