The abundance of natural parks offer great opportunities for hiking, particularly in the National Parks of La Campana (easily accessible from Santiago), Laguna del Laja, Huerquehue, Villarrica and Torres de Puyehue. The Torres del Paine National Park is a paradise for hikers, with a well-organized network of tracks where you can hike.
