Ski a Volcano at Hacienda Hotel Vira Vira
Great For: Skiers & Snowboarders, Active Travelers, Honeymooners
Disclaimer: Vira Vira is closed June-August, so this is an ideal September getaway.
For adventurous travelers who live by the moto of “never summer” and also appreciate fine dining and supreme hospitality after a hard charging day on the slopes, look no further than Hacienda Hotel Vira Vira in the Chilean Lakes District. This Relais & Chateaux property is located close to the family-friendly ski resort of Pucon as well as the snowy slopes of Villarica Volcano. Advanced skiers have the opportunity to hike, summit and ski Villarica, an active volcano, accompanied by a certified mountaineering and ski guide.
Following a day of slaying pow, warm up with a soak in one of Vira Vira’s wood-fired hot tubs overlooking the Liucura River and then savor a gourmet dinner focused on meat and produce sourced from the Hacienda’s own farm & gardens. Owner Michael Paravicini’s uncle is David Hess, and this inherited passion for wine is reflected in the rotating all-Chilean list of premium wines which Michael hand-selects to accompany the evening’s dinner.
September typically sees a great snowpack and also when Vira Vira offers guests a complimentary 4th night for a 3 night minimum stay. Work directly with Vira Vira or contact your local DMC to plan a Chile ski getaway for your clients.
