Comfenalco Piedras Blancas

» Arví Park

Four centuries ago, chroniclers of the time talked about the discovery of a large primitive area. That expanse of land, comprising almost 40,000 acres, is today Arví Park, the largest nature park in the country. Constituting an expression of the historical, ecological, and conservationist heritage of the region, Arví is located in the Annexed Village of Santa Elena. The park comprises six thematic Núcleos that include cultural spaces, adventure scenarios, recreation and culinary offer, ancestral lands, trails, lookouts, native woodlands, cable cars, and a catalog of over 700 species showcasing plants, mammals, birds, and reptiles.
