Trekking in the dunes of Putú

(Easy) All the year
One of our favorites!


Departure at 7:30 – 8:00AM at your Hotel / Hostel in Talca or at the Plaza de Armas.
The drive along the cordillera coust to the dunes takes 2 hours. Arriving in Putú we can buy some water for the day. From here it is a 30 minutes hike to the dunes.
The dunes extend over a length of around 30km and they are approximately 5km in width.
On this 3 hour dune trekking tour we see the coast from a different side and we learn to orientate with a GPS to find the way out of this desert.
Afterwards we move to the small coastal town Constitución. During the small city-tour you will get an idea about the destruction during the earthquarke and tsunami in Feb. 2010.
After this we will go to the rock Piedra de la Iglesia, the town´s landmark, where 10001 seagulls and pelicans are nest. Final visit in Constitución is the town´s hill Mutrun where we have a nice view over the ocean and the mouth of the Rio Maule.

  • Transfer
