Also situated in Chile’s serene Lake District and easily accessible from Hotel Mari Mari (mentioned above) is &Beyond Vira Vira. It is the perfect place, not only to explore, but also to truly unwind, Chilean style. Think relaxed cottage country and wholesome organic farm life, combined with a peaceful, almost après-ski feel with its alpine views, crackling fireplaces and cosy, wooden suites.
Families can enjoy the best of both worlds on the Private Pacific Coast to Andes Adventure, a seven-day journey that highlights the outdoor adventure and laidback luxury of both Mari Mari and Vira Vira.
Previously the owner’s personal residence, the five-bedroomed Hacienda at Vira Vira is a private and luxurious home-away-from-home for multi-generational families. In addition to the spacious living and dining areas, the Hacienda also features a family room, garden terrace, private outdoor hot tub, covered balcony with a view, the convenience of a personal chef and a host of fun-filled WILDchild adventures for children.
Situated on a sprawling 22 hectare (almost 55 acre) estate, Vira Vira is an invitation to explore, with its wide open meadows, forest paths, organic farm, quesería (in-house cheese dairy), tranquil lagoon and 6 km (3.7 miles) of Liucura River frontage.
Of course, surrounding the estate is the outdoor playground that Chile is famous for. Adrenaline seekers can opt for heli-skiing, snowshoeing, skiing, snowboarding, dog sledding, heli-fishing, mountain biking, SUPing, horseback riding, scenic helicopter flights and more.
Those preferring a gentler day outdoors can enjoy leisurely hikes, forest walks, fishing, gentle drift boat floats, birdwatching and insightful visits to the local Mapuche community. There is something for every age and activity level in the family.
