Villarrica National Reserve is a national reserve of Chile.[2] It consists of eleven separate sections and is also known as Hualalafquén, which in turn is the name of the main section of the reserve.[1]

The reserve's boundaries have changed since its creation. Its original extension was reduced to create Huerquehue and Villarrica National Parks.[1]

The reserve is accessible via Chile Route 199.[1]
