Mountain Biking near Pucón - Bicycling Pucón - Chile

In the countryside around Pucón are many natural wonders. Some are only accessible in private vehicle—or by bike. Popular day outings are the waterfalls Ojos de Caburgua, the Cuevas Volcánicas, a series of cascades on the road to Palguín and the hot springs that steam across the landscape. Spinning the wheels will also take you away from the city and its tourists, to see the daily life of campesinos and to visit indigenous villages. The Ciclovía is the beginning of many journeys. Cycling maps are available from most bike rental shops.
