Full description
This excursion is recommended for people who love nature and the cultural and natural heritage of countries. Following Charles Darwin footsteps, who visited  “La Campana” National Park on August of 1834, will lead you to discover this wonderful place labeled by the UNESCO as a “Biosphere Reserve”, with the objective of protecting a unique ecosystem which includes an abundant and varied amount of native flora and fauna.Some of the palms are more than 400 years old!

On top of that, La Campana National park aims to preserve the Chilean palm (Jubaea Chilensis), which is the most southern palm of the World, and which is now in danger of extinction due to the production and the extraction of honey which started in the colonial era replacing the sugar cane used in Central America and the Caribbean. Go to the “Sendero La Cascada” Trail, 12 kms of round-trip extension and arrive to a lookout where you can appreciate a waterfall of 30 meters. Furthermore it shows how climatic change affects the entire world. This doesn’t change the spectacular and unique beauty of the place. At the end of the trek share a delicious glass of chilean wine and cheese.
