There are three main routes towards Pucón

  • From the North - from Santiago or Concepción passing Temuco, Freire and Villarrica
  • From the South - from Puerto Montt or Valdivia passing Loncoche and Villarrica
  • From the East (Argentina) - from San Martín de los Andes crossing the Mamuil-Malal-Pass (also called Tromen-Pass)

The first two roads are entirely paved and in good condition, the Panamerican has highway standard. Total distance Santiago – Pucón is 789 kilometres, it is about a nine-hours-driv

The international connection is a gravel road for about 100 kilometres. There is no problem in summer for any vehicle, but in winter you may need a 4WD.

Buses for the El Cañi natural reserve and the hotsprings of Peumayén, Quimey-Co, Huife and Los Pozones leave from Terminal Pullman on Palguín street, alsmost on the corner of Uruguay street.
