The town is entirely walkable, otherwise taxis are available.

  • Go to Parque Nacional Conguillío. In winter, you can take a Captrén minibus from the bus terminal to the Guarderia Captrén (CLP$600, 45 min) or as far as the snow allows. From there you can do a magnificent hike with snowshoes to the Laguna Captrén, with views on the Volcán Llaima along the way. More options are available during summer as transportation can bring you deeper.
