Whether by car or by bike, going on a tour to the Caburgua eyes is a good alternative to find nature a few kilometers away from the urban shell.
One of the classic tours to see the natural beauties surrounding Pucón is the excursion to the Caburgua eyes, some magnificent natural pits in the core of the Valdivian rainforest. In order to visit them, drive or cycle towards Lake Caburgua along 15 kilometers until you reach a detour on the left which leads to a group of natural pools. This underground water emerging amidst a thick forest comes from the same lake after which they are named and other nearby streams.
In the summer, this is the place chosen both by visitors and locals to have a bath, a pic-nic or simply camp.
Another alternative is to continue driving or cycling along the road 3 kilometers ahead from the detour up to the place called “El Cristo”, turn left and then continue along one more kilometer until the Landhaus San Sebastián Inn is reached. At this traditional restaurant and tea house hosted by its owners, visitors may taste classic German dishes, very typical in this area.
