Canopying

Whether you find yourself near Santiago or in southern Chile, there are plenty of opportunities to try canopying, a sport that involves zipping through forests among the treetops, combining fun, adrenaline and an opportunity to appreciate the natural wonders that surround you.

The sport gains new fans every day in Chile, and dozens of companies offer this thrilling and ecologically-friendly activity to locals and visitors alike.

In Cajón del Maipo (15 km from Santiago), you can zoom along a line over the Maipo River at speeds of up to 50 kilometers per hour.

The Viña del Mar Botanical Gardens offer both adult routes (which are about 1,500 meters long) and shorter children’s circuits.

This activity is very popular in Pucón, Villiarica and Valdivia. In fact, the longest canopying circuit in South America is Pucón’s “El Cóndor,” a 3,500 meter long route with six stations and views of the Villarrica, Quetrupillán and Lanín Volcanoes and two lagoons.

Another renowned route is in the basin of Lake Llanquihue, near Puerto Varas. The circuit reaches heights of 100 meters and includes 11 segments that are accessible to canopying fans of all ages. The Huilo-Huilo Reserve has a route that combines canopying and trekking along trails that lead through its forests.

Finally, in the Northern Patagonia, you’ll find canopy routes that run through the forest that links Lake General Carrera and Lake Negro.
