A luxury lodge set on a forested hillside with outstanding views of the Virunga volcanoes, Lakes Ruhondo and Lake Bulera.

Virunga Lodge provides a high level of comfort while taking the surrounding environment of Parc National des Volcans and Rwanda's post-conflict context into consideration. The main activity at Virunga Lodge is Gorilla-tracking, other activities include climbing volcanoes, visits to the Karisoke Centre set up by Dian Fossey and gentle strolls around picturesque villages surrounding the lakes.

The Ikirunga Spa, with two open fired treatment rooms and a wood burning African sauna, has recently opened its doors to visitors seeking a taste of volcanic relaxation during their stay.
