Dear Ralf and Dagmar, you have a wonderful oasis which we have been very lucky to share with you for a few days. We loved your river, your beach your horses and the view from our bedroom. We enjoyed meeting your other guests and practicing (just a little bit) my German. We certainly hope to return to the area sometime soon. With love and best of luck to you

This have been four relaxing and adventurous days in a good combination. We climbed the vulcano, went fishing on the river, and enjoyed the thermal bath. And we learned to know the EierSchalenSoll BrauchStelleVeruhrsacher (o.k. the Egg Slayer). Thank you for good food, nice accommodation, and great hospitality, and introducing us to the Pisco Sour and the Mate tea.

Dearest Ralf & Dagmar Thank you very much for having us stay in one of your wonderful cabins, here at "Dos Rios". We very much enjoyed having our own private facilities for a change. The property is great with a wide range of animals, we loved Katy. Thank you also for helping us plan our trip to the termas. We hope to come in the near future.

Finally the clouds lifted and we could see the volcano. We would have missed it had Ralf not paid us one last visit the last day of our stay. Thanks for so many times pointing out all at Dos Rios + the surrounding area. Tim says this was a treasure trove for the kids. It was truly a find for the entire family from riding to enchanted forests and private islands to llamas, Mapuche museums & wildlife refuges.

A "chance" meeting in downtown Villarrica, a few moments later and it was not meant to be! We have toyed with the idea of excursions, volcano trips, trekking and all the rest - but really when you have what is on offer here at Dos Rios you need not more to far, just a few steps... particularly when we you're traveling for a year, Dos Rios has offered us the perfect chance to kick back, relax, gather our thoughts and plan for the next episode -
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
Wonderful, homely cabañas, friendly welcoming owners - it´s been a lovely few days, even in the rain!! xx Meg England Dagmar - Thank you for helping out two wet backpackers in Villarrica! - what a amazing place to end up (a real treat for us)!
We have had a really enjoyable & relaxing time here. I have enjoyed tending to the ofen fire in our cabin! I hate to admit defeat but I think the trouts have beaten me! I have very much enjoyed the fishing all the same.
Thank you both for your hospitality, Simon England


Thank you for a lovely stay. The views of Volcano Villarrica together with the fields, beach & river made for a spectacular scene for our visit.We are also very grateful for the tour to the volcano and transportation you arranged for a couple of occasions. We will remember our stay here as probably the highlight of our travels. We will also miss our little wine evenings and your good company.

There is a flat way of seeing: I live with it most days. Yet there is a fresh, spiritual way of seeing, and when it comes to me, the day is rare. With this new vision, I can see the innocence woven through all men and things, as if a shaft of light has fallen upon treasured objects in a forgotten closet. The day I was greeted by the Gamper family and Parque Natural Dos Rios was one of those incredibly rare days. And I will be better for it always.

Ralf y Dagmar, Thank you for the incredible hospitality here in Dos Rios. I had the best three day trip of my life. The adventure of the Canopy and climbing the volcano Villarrica and snow boarding down. Then the relaxing day of the Termas. I couldn't have asked for anything more. All that adventure and the best part was the great food and warm wonderful hospitality,

To everyone @ Dos Rios, Thank you so much for a really enjoyable stay @ Dos Rios. We really enjoyed the horse riding, fishing + boat trips.

We have been looked after so well here we will remember our stay and recommend you to all our friends. Thank you again. You have made our trip to Chile really memorable.

Dear Dagmar,
On behalf of L.E.A.D. Class VIII I want to thank you very much for taking time out of your busy day to spend with us. We toured many places while we were in Chile and your ranch was by far the best tour. It was evident that you are passionate about the land and preserving it for future generations.
Thanks again, Leslie Hendry Big Horn Ranch" bighorn@trib.com

We loved our stay here. We found the view from our window the most beautiful in Chile. The "cabanas" are very comfortable and charming and you know you are all very special. We will miss you.
