    A beautiful native of Villarrica with a history in performing arts has been teaching yoga for the past six years. She began her studies practicing rhythmic and artistic gymnastics as a teenager and then continued her artistic nature studying theater at Diego Portales University in Santiago, Chile. With these simple words, she describes her love for what she does: I am always struck by the performing arts of India and its spiritual foundations in relation to the movement and flow of energy.

Samasati Lodge is found only 6 minutes outside of Pucon, amidst 6.1 acres of natural beauty, overlooking the Villarica lake and volcano. A true paradise with natural spring water and mystical statues in the lavish gardens, only 4 miles away from truly gorgeous Caribbean beaches.

Extreme rafting

For those looking for the ultimate whitewater experience, come and ride the wild, remote rapids of the Rio Maichin. Its Class III, IV, and V rapids rush through a deep, lush, granite canyon where the scenery is just as impressive as the whitewater. Your expert guide will outfit you with the latest in rafting equipment and train you in the proper paddling and safety techniques before embarking on this epic adventure. Prior rafting experience is recommended, but it is not necessary. Although steeper and more remote than the nearby Trancura Alto, this run is perfect for the experienced rafter and for the adventurous first timer.

Horseback riding

Get close to nature and enjoy a morning or romantic sunset ride along the volcanic area of the Cani mountain range (at a height of 1500 meters round the volcano) crossing through millennial forest of Coigues, Lengas, and Araucarias, finally reaching the naturally beautiful Huenulafken Lagoon.

Mellow rafting

The mellow rafting trips are all about fun and relaxation on the water. You will have the opportunity to swim and enjoy the views of nearby mountain peaks and magnificent flora and fauna as you cruise down the pristine and crystalline waters of the Rio Puesco.

Stand up paddle board

This emerging global sport is like walking on water. Unlike surfing, stand up paddle surf is very easy to learn, but provides a good core workout. Within one hour, the instructor will make you feel comfortable on your board and youll enjoy being out on Pucon's surrounding lakes.

Lymphatic drainage massage

This massage helps eliminate toxins from your body with this gentle massage that concentrates on the lymphatic system. By relieving congestion in the tissues and draining fluid from the lymph nodes, this treatment stimulates the natural cleansing process of your body and helps to promote a renewed sense of wellbeing.

Thai massage

This strong massage combines Thai massage with acupressure point work to relieve ailments such as headache, back pain, knee pain, and shoulder and neck pain caused by various conditions of physical and mental stress. The massage involves the therapist using her thumbs, palms, and fingers to apply pressure on specific points. A painful yet therapeutic massage. Not for the faint hearted.

    "I have traveled to over sixty countries and have never had a more personalized tour than what Mabel offered."

    "At first when I booked the tour with Mabel I was a little hesitant since she is just starting off in her business. She had several set tour dates but none fit within my time schedule. We also had some challenges with the website so I had to contact her on Facebook. But once I arrived in Pucon everything went perfect. Mabel personally customized my stay. This is my third yoga retreat and I've been to many yoga studios before, so speaking from experience, the yoga instructors in Pucon are top notch. I had two private classes and one was out side in nature with beautiful scenery. During one of the private lessons the instructor, Tessa, worked with me on a few poses I've never been able to accomplish before. "

    "Mabel also arranged for me to have private white water kayaking instruction. I had only kayaked three times before so I was a little hesitant to try the rapids in Pucon. The instructor however, was excellent and only took me on waters that were suitable for my skill level. Like yoga, it was an extremely rewarding experience because I felt like I had improved my skills on the water. The beautiful scenery was amazing too- this is an absolute must! "

    "My last day in Pucon has been the highlight of my trip to Chile. We took a six hour hike to absolutely breathtaking views of waterfalls and lakes. That night I was invited to Mabel's house for dinner. We watched shooting stars and the Villarrico volcano in the distance. Writing about this all now seems so surreal. I've traveled to over sixty countries now and I've never had such a personalized experience and felt such warmth from a tour guide. Mabel and her husband feel to me more like my Chilean family than an actual tour! This was such a rare opportunity and I'm incredibly lucky I have discovered this trip. I left Pucon with a heavy heart since I felt I made so many dear friends in only a few days and was able to have an insight to Chile only a few ever get to understand."

    "We enjoyed a 3 day / 4 night yoga and hiking retreat with Mabel. Started our days with an hour of yoga on the lakeside deck before breakfast. Hiked to the beautiful Santo Clara waterfall, climbed the Volcano Villarrica and spent a day hiking and kayaking on the lake at a private lodge in Huerquehue National Park. Mabel met us at the bus station when we arrived and looked after every detail."

    "Our accommodation was at the lakeside Magma Lodge which was actually a collection of geodesic domes situated amid mature pine trees. Wonderfully relaxing location. The highlight for us was hiking to the summit at 9,500 Ft of the active volcano that erupted in March 2015. There was steam coming from the volcano and at the rim of the crater we could hear rumbling lava and smell the sulphur emissions - amazing!"

    "Mabel is extremely welcoming and always fun to be around. She introduced me to a wonderful yoga instructor and I was able to take classes everyday. She would then have several options for daily activities, such as, different hikes, kayaking, hot springs or Paddle boarding. She is knows Pucon extremely well and can show you all the places you can't find in a guide book. If I get a chance to come back to South America I am definitely going through Avani yoga retreats again."

    "From the booking process all the way up until my flight back home this was an excellent experience. The company was very quick to respond and helpful when it came to booking the tour. They even gave me descriptions of what the airport in Santiago would be like, how to maneuver my way around and even booked my bus ticket for me."

    "My experience in Pucon was unforgettable. They completely customized my tour for me. Any change that I wanted done to the itinerary was made and I got to experience a vast range of activities. I’m really impressed with how attentive the tour operators were and how flexible they were in order to make sure I was as happy as possible. The hikes were incredible and the views were breathtaking; truly world-class. "

    "The yoga was awesome. More than half of the time I was privately instructed. The instructor was very attentive to small details in my poses. I got try to a variety of different yoga styles and studios. They also offered me the opportunity to practice yoga outside and get that much closer to nature."

    "I highly recommend the lodging for anyone interested in the tour. I was incredibly comfortable through out my stay. The place was beautiful and the staff went out of their way to make sure I was happy. The food was also exactly what I needed. Delicious vegan meals and smoothies, packed with nutrition and flavors."

    "If you’re considering any sort of guided experience while in Southern Chile, this is the tour operator to use!"

    "I fell in love with the Chilean community even more than before, I highly recommend to everyone to go visit or to move there. It's considered one of the most spiritual places on earth, the lamas are moving their Buddhist temples all over South America. I'm back with more love that I could have imagined, thank you Pucon"."
