The farm Flor Del Lago, which means flower of the lake, belongs to the Wagner family who has been working the cattle and forest farm for three generations.
The farm is situated on the north shore of Lake Villarrica, with beautiful views over the lake to the active volcano. 3000 Hectares of Hilly grasslands, including temperate virgin rain forest and douglas fir plantations are the scenic hunting ground.
The indigenous animals such as pudu (worlds smallest deer), foxes, skunks, rabbits, hare and the beautiful puma share their habitat with these introduced species.
In March there is the rutting season, time for the deer to mate. The spectacular way the male stags try to get the females attention in order to get a big herd for their own, is just magnificent and worthwhile watching. Even non-hunters will enjoy it!
