Special interest tourism (SIT) caters specifically to the client. It is a form of tourism based on sharing environmental and cultural identities of specific regions of the world with individual persons or groups who have come from far or near. Today, it is at the heart of environmental and cultural conservation at the local level.
Lemu Mahuida promotes this kind of tourism. We are highly motivated in supporting conservation efforts in our environment,t and thus create a different type of tourism, one that is educational and entertaining for everyone.

About Lemu Mahuida
Lemu Mahuida was born as a touristic venture a few years ago. It means “Mountain Forrest” in Mapudungun, which is the native language of the Mapuche.
After traveling, studying, and working with environmental and conservation issues for more than 15 years, I decided to start this wonderful adventure in order to create and promote a new type of tourism in Coñaripe.
The main objective of this venture is to share experiences in the great outdoors with people from around the world. We offer customized tours that achieve objectives ranging from research trips to families wanting to kayak on the rivers and lakes of the region.
To discover Coñaripe you just have to want to be here. It’s spectacular in every season. Be it rain, snow, or hot summers, there is always something that will surprise you and be an unforgettable experience.
