Wenu Mapu is a private ecological reserve and a wild paradise of dense forests and lush meadows with magnificent views of Volcano Villarrica, Caburgua Lake and nearby mountains. There are various trailheads inside the forest, from which one can submerge themselves into this world of biodiversity. Within Wenu Mapu there are cozy cabins, many open spaces for several types of activities, a large outdoor shelter and camping facilities. The reserve is within walking distance from Huerque National Park and a 45 minute drive from Pucon.

The word, "Wenu Mapu", in Mapuche cosmology, has been designated for sacred places. "Wenu – Mapu" literally means "Sky-Earth", which can be translated to "Heaven on Earth" or the "Land of Heaven". For us, this truly is "heaven on Earth". We are so grateful that this place exists and it is now a refuge for all who want to enjoy themselves in nature. In this spirit, we welcome you
and would love to share with you what we have been so blessed to experience.


The project of Wenu Mapu was created with an aspiration of finding sustainable ways to protect the endemic flora and fauna of the area, and created with the inclination to share with those who are not looking for a formal and impersonal tourist circuit, who have a passion for nature and travel.
