“Treetop camping in the temperate rainforest of southern Chile.”*
Listen to the sound of the wind in the leaves, and enjoy the early morning song of the forest as you greet the day from a treetop cabin. Suspended five metres above the forest floor, the Huilo Huilo Canopy Village has reinvented the concept of forest living. The network of treetop cabins is situated within the 144,000-acre Huilo Huilo Biological Reserve, an area of temperate rainforest in southern Chile. At the Canopy Village, travellers can stay right in the very heart of the forest, with the reserve’s diverse array of wildlife right on the doorstep! Bearing in mind that here, the 'doorstep' is high up in the trees…
Constructed mainly out of wood for an authentic treetop experience, each 8-person cabin is fitted out with basic camp beds and cosy thermal sleeping bags, and has its own external bathroom. Angled windows let you make the most of the forest views, while a connecting footbridge gives you access to the main Huilo Huilo resort and all its amenities – including a restaurant and Spa facilities. There are plenty of forest activities on offer: trek through the jungle to discover volcanic caves, or join an organised expedition lead by an expert guide – kayak, hike and mountain bike through the forest, before concluding your tour at the summit of the incredible Moco-Choshuenco Volcano!
The Huilo Huilo Biological Reserve is part of a unique and relatively unexplored ecosystem, deep within the Chilean Patagonian Rainforest. The reserve is one of the few places on earth with a biologically, ecologically and globally important temperate rainforest ecosystem – travellers are encouraged to respect the area’s natural rhythms, rare habitats and endangered species, so that future generations can continue to enjoy this beautiful world heritage area. The Huilo Huilo project’s scientific research and the conservation work being done in the area have received international attention and acclaim; one flagship project is the protection of the Huemul deer, a national symbol in danger of extinction. The project has helped to breed the species within a controlled environment, helping to ensure its long-term survival.
The Huilo Huilo Foundation aims to develop flora and fauna conservation projects in the area, involving local communities and entrepreneurs and taking a collaborative and inclusive approach to ensure the project’s success. As the Huilo Huilo project has grown and developed, so too have local communities. The project works alongside an extensive network of public and private collaborators, all committed to conserving the area’s natural and cultural sustainability. By adopting an inclusive approach when developing the area as a sustainable ecotourism destination, local communities are able to benefit and take ownership of the project.
