Hiking in Cochamó and La Junta


Hiking around the Cochamó and La Junta Valley is the best way to explore the “Yosemite of South America.” You don’t nned to be a superhero to manage most of the hikes and be rewarded by breathtaking vistas.

The Trail Between Our Two Properties
Many Campo Aventura guests choose to hike through the rainforest along the Cochamó Trail to our upper La Junta Mountain Lodge property after spending a relaxing night at our base Riverside Lodge. We take lodge guests to the trailhead—-which results in a moderate hike of 14 kms/8.5 miles.

HIKING IN LA JUNTA–the Jewel of Cochamó
This is a hiker’s Paradise! You can choose from a variety of half- and full-day hikes, ranging from easy to moderate to challenging. (See descriptions.) You can easily spend 3 – 5 days based at our Mountain Lodge campsite and enjoy a different self-guided hiking experience with stunning new views every day.

A gentle river-bank walk or an energetic hike up to a neighboring farm lets you enjoy the valley’s beauty at sea level. It’s also possible to walk to the village–passing by homesteads, pastures, and fishing boats–to catch a glimpse of daily life in Cochamó.
