At the Lago Lanalhue and Lago Lleulleu, two remote and picturesque lakes, partially still inhabited by the Lafquenche (indigenes) you find places where you can camp or rent a caba├▒a (hut). The car ride from Concepci├│n takes three hours.

Only twenty minutes by airplane separates the Isla Mocha from the continent where farmers and fishermen live. Although no motorized vehicle is allowed there, the natural reserve offers a modern touristic infrastructure with fly fishing, mountain biking, scuba diving, and trekking. There are campsites, but also comfortable private rooms and huts (caba├▒as) for rent. The flights go from Concepci├│n or Tir├║a.

The Nahuelbuta (Big Jaguar) National Park is also located three to four hours by car to the south of Concepci├│n and can be reached by the Ruta 160 highway until Antiguala, another possibility to get there is from Angol, IX Region. Especially trekkers, but also fauna and flora enthusiasts as well as ornithologists will find a very nice place to visit.

Very beautiful landscapes can be found in Las Trancas Valley and the Termas de Chill├ín, reputed as the skiing resort with the best snow in the southern hemisphere. Easy to reach by car or public bus from Chill├ín located 100 km to the east of Concepci├│n, passing by the villages of Pinto and Recinto, activities like trekking, horseback riding, mountain bike trips and the ascent of mountains and volcanoes (e.g.Volc├ín Chill├ín) are offered. You can also visit a cave and go alpine skiing, practice ski randonn├ęe, or relax in the nearby hot springs in Valle Hermoso. A five star hotel, caba├▒as, camp sites, lodges, and hostels invite you to stay.

From Chillán, following the Panamerican highway, about 25 km after Cabrero towards south, you reach the Saltos del Laja, Chile´s largest waterfalls that can directly be reached from the motorway. The touristic infrastructure includes campsites, cabañas, bike and kayak rental, as well as motorboat trips on the river below the biggest waterfall.

The Laguna del Laja National Park can be reached from Los Angeles, located beside the Panamerican motorway or Ruta 5. On the bottom of volcano Antuco you can find some short ski lifts and can cross over to Argentina in the summer when the nearby Andean pass is open.
