Rahue to Lago Hui Hui

Rahue – Lago Quillen – Lago Hui Hui


A short cycle up to two beautiful and quiet lakes in the northern sector of Parque Nacional Lanin. Views of Volcan Lanin are excellent from Lago Quillen and at the end of the road you’ll likely have Lago Hui Hui all to yourself.

There is a cheap campsite at Lago Quillen with a very basic shop and there are also basic shops at some of the villages on the way from Rahue to the lake. There are no amenities between Lago Quillen and Lago Hui Hui, apart from a free campsite (no facilities) on the Lago Quillen lakeshore 6kms before Lago Hui Hui.

    In January 2016, this route was closed due to an ongoing disagreement between the National Park and the indigenous population. The tourist offices in Alumine or Junin can provide you with up-to-date information about the current situation.
