According to the agreed time, we wait for you at your hotel 09:00 in Pucón to do the Mapuche cultural tour. In this experience you can get to know the most important indigenous ethnicity in Chile. We begin with a visit to the Quelhue community which means, swamp place. To reach them, we have to cross the river Trancura by a bridge, where (with good weather) we can see the three stratovolcanoes of Villarrica National Park: Villarrica, Quetrupillán and Lanín. Once on the other side of the river, we are going to visit the territory of a typical Mapuche family.
In their "ruka", typical mapuche house built of wood and straw, they will share their culture with us and we can know their typical artifacts, listen to their music and wear the clothes they wear.
With this ethnic tour to the Mapuche community, you help build markets with identity and collaborate with the development of local economies of the Region of La Araucanía.
Once the tour is over, we return to your hotel in Pucón.
