Chilean autumn lasts 3 months from March to June. Chile is not only home to the driest desert in the world, volcanoes or imposing glaciers. In the southern part of Chile, you will also find beautiful evergreen forests, some of which are located next to deep blue lakes.
The autumnal natural landscapes enchant with a beautiful play of colours of red, brown, orange and yellow leaves.
The Araucaria region in particular is a spectacular destination to experience autumn in all its beauty. Chile currently has 42 national parks and 46 nature reserves where you can enjoy the untouched natural landscapes. In Conguillio National Park, the red of the deciduous trees contrasts with the green of the araucaria, offering a unique colourful panorama that provides perfect motifs, especially for lovers of landscape photography.
Huerquehue National Park, also located in Araucaria, enchants visitors with the fiery red leaves of its deciduous trees. It is particularly impressive when this play of colours is reflected in the lakes and waters of the park.
Another autumn travel tip in Araucaria is the Malalcahuello Nature Reserve. Here you can enjoy a contrasting spectacle when the red, yellow and green coloured leaves contrast with the bluish tones of the Lonquimay volcano, which in autumn often also has a mountain top already white from the first snowfalls.
Patagonia is not only a unique destination in spring or summer, the winter and especially autumn months also offer numerous advantages for a trip. Especially Torres del Paine National Park, the 8th wonder of the world in the heart of Patagonia, is an ideal destination to welcome the colder season. There are fewer tourists here at this time of year and they can enjoy the breathtaking landscapes to the fullest. The endless open nature is coloured in autumn in an intense yellow and the treetops in red, which contrasts with the greys and whites of the surrounding mountains, lakes and impressive glaciers.
The Karukinka Park in Tierra del Fuego at the southern tip of South America is also worth a trip in autumn. The wilderness and untouched nature shows itself in joyful colours when the Lenga beech trees begin to change colour into intense shades of yellow, orange and red.
