Ancestral Experience

Receive ancient wisdom from the "people of the Land" & discover their unique culture.

Pichintu mongelíñ paniewllelaiaiñ

— Since life's so short, shouldn’t we meet again?

For the ancestral experiences, we have designed experiences by mainly focusing on highlighting the Mapuche worldview; the aborigines of this Southern area and the original ancestral culture predominant in this Chilean territory. The best way to learn more about their unique culture will be in field and through interaction with the same Mapuche People, who take pride in their knowledge.

In addition to rescue the Mapuche worldview, we also carry out programs linked to Andean and Native American shamanism and Tibetan Buddhism, by visiting centers that realize actions on these lines and around Pucón. This way, we include the spirituality and wisdom from other villages in the travel experiences of our visitors.

    Mapuche Culture

    After exploring and visiting sites in this area, we have approached a meeting with the Mapuche people, where were able to experience the interaction of “water and earth”; from the rain, rivers and lakes, together with the strong presence of the volcanic fire and the Puelche wind that blows from every corner.

    Spirituality

    Spirituality is present in every individual, in our encounters and in the reflection that presents before us in every one of them. The relation between the inside and the outside, together with its integration, bring us to a unique experience that is valuable to each one.
