What to do &Beyond Vira Vira

In both summer & winter, the lodge offers a range of outdoor & cultural experiences to discover the local heritage & explore the surrounding terrains.

Kayak across the clear waters of Lake Tinquiloco, raft down the racing rapids of the river or learn about the fascinating cultural & culinary heritage of Chile’s indomitable Mapuche people.

For those visiting in winter, explore the untouched landscapes of the Villarrica National Park on a snowshoe trekking expedition or dare to ski down the active Villarrica Volcano.

Each evening a four-course dinner is freshly prepared with ingredients from the farm & paired with world-class Chilean wine, recommended by the sommelier. If it’s the summer, there are open-fire barbecues along the riverbank to grill steaks.


The Vira Vira Estate sits ten minutes outside of Pucon in Chile’s peaceful Lake District. Roughly 780km south of Santiago, the lodge sits close to the Argentinian border.

There are flights from Santiago to Temuca Airport (1 hour 40 mins from Via Vira by car & 25 minutes by helicopter). Those arriving from Puntas Arenas should fly to El Tepual Airport, followed by a 4-hour 30-minute land transfer (1 hour 20 minutes by helicopter).

It’s also possible to arrive from Argentina. Fly to Bariloche from Buenos Aires, followed by a 5-hour land transfer (1 hour 30 mins by helicopter).
