2007 Roadtrip Puyehue, Chile

We left Valdivia at 9:30 a.m. and drove the 137 km to Puyehue. Puyehue is "One of the best kept secrets in Chile ....; this grand hotel [was] built in 1941 by a German family. It offers many amenities for a relaxing get-away or an adventure-filled holiday. It is located approximately an hour from Osorno and an hour from the Argentine/Chile border." p. 95 Excursions for Expats, Chile and Neighboring Countries, by Teri McLachlan with Leonie Elphinstone.
We stayed 4 nights at Termas Puyehue Hotel & Spa Termal (Ruta 215 km 76, fono (56-64) 331-400, http://www.puyehue.cl/) and had a great time. It's our kind of place!

We heavily negotiated a price of US$184 for Suite 250 with 2 meals a day (dinner costing at least US$40 for the two of us). We thought that we had done well and then we learned that we had a package that also included 3 activities! We would be staying there enough days to take advantage of the daily activities.

The canopy experience itself was priced a la carte at CLP$12.000 each or about US$50 for the two of us and it was really, really fun!

And of course we loved the thermal pools.

We had two other excursions included in our package. They were both good and we had fun. We also had a couple-hour guided hike near the property.
Our (included) guided excursion to Parque Nacional Anticura was provided by Termas Puyehue. We are at Salta Rio Anticura.
