Copahue is a thermal city and its famous volcano is to blame for this. Rare, different and exotic, after spending a while in this location, visitors learn to love it.
For several years, this site located in Northern Neuquén has been a favorite destination for various generations who have been visiting and recommending this place not only to relax but also to recover from all kinds of skin disease.
The mapuche legend goes that Maivé fell madly in love with him as soon as she saw him. The beautiful ketri or myrtle forms a unique forest in the Quetrihué Peninsula.
As ancient as they are beautiful, their thick trunks are covered by soft thin sheets that make up the cold bark dyed in a delicate cinnamon color.
Determined to climb the Lanín volcano, we prepared the necessary equipment and the corresponding authorizations to make this high mountain expedition possible. We hired the services of an experienced and registered guide from Lanín National Park to be informed on how to go about this longed-for climbing outing.
The guide politely told us that Lanín is a demanding option since it entails great physical effort .
