I stayed on previous visit on a cabin that was built around an Araucaria tree. Don't know how they got permission to do so; now they were apparently dismantled.
I stayed on previous visits at the camping site and on a cabin that was built around an Araucaria tree. Don't know how they got permission to do so; now they were apparently dismantled.
The same operator had new cabins but no availability, they mentioned another operator: La Baita (mountain hut in Italian).
I immediately called and booked a cabin, thinking they were in the same zone. Preparing the trip, discovered that they were 12 kilometers to the South of the park, at the edge of the volcanic lava remains.
