Overview

Liucura River eco-lodge whose extensive outdoor excursion menu is aimed at the modern-day adventurer

The Lowdown

For its first edition outside of Africa, experiential travel stalwarts andBeyond selected a road-less-traveled blend of dairy farmlands and snowcapped volcanoes in Chile’s picturesque Lake District,. It’s a bucolic backdrop best explored with one of the property’s many knowledgeable guides—trademarks of the high-end tour company. Whether you’re ascending the Villarica Volcano (if you’re feeling flush, helicopter rides to the summit are also available), taking a lazy dip in one of the area’s thermal pools, trekking through one of the many surrounding evergreen rainforests, or getting to know the country’s wild side by horseback riding alongside Huaso cowboys, andBeyond’s unofficial nature concierges are instrumental when it comes to interpreting your rugged surroundings. Back at the hacienda, indulge in the hot tub in your split-level cabin-inspired room lined with pale indigenous woods and local mapuche tapestries, or soak in a more convivial vibe at the open-air bar where the drinks menu includes a gingery pisco sour and an impressive list of local reds.

In the Area

You’re a 60-minute drive from La Araucania International Airport (an hour’s flight from Santiago); transfers are part of your all-inclusive rate here. If you’re craving a break from the high-adrenaline outdoor adventures, partake in one of the retreat’s more relaxed onsite activities, which include a riverside morning yoga session or a tour of the adjacent farm, where you can get a crash-course in cheese making. As part of the brand’s signature commitment to sustainability, the lodge staff can also coordinate visits to the nearby town of Curarrehue, home to the area’s indigenous Mapuche community, where guests can meet weavers and lunch at a traditional ruka (a local straw dwelling).

I have stayed in many places but this is about the best. Attention to detail in incredible. Staff know you by name. They remember your likes and dislikes. They are warm and friendly. Now add a fantastic menu. Each choice and course is selected with care. Local produce only (except Scotch Whiskey). Best veal I have eaten. Accommodation is wonderful and very well thought out. Booked it stay there and enjoy. You get what you pay for

Beautiful location in the shadow of a snow capped volcano on beautiful grounds. 6 sites, 12 villas and a 5 bedroom hacienda, all beautiful. Great activities, I went biking in the am and drove 45 minutes to ski in the afternoon in Sept. Hiking, kayaking, rafting, fishing, horse riding - hot tubs around the property - all in a beautiful scenic setting on a lake and a river. Beautifully crafted food and especially the breads. Great for any traveler.

Unbelievable wonderful place to remember
