Climbing Lanin

Explore-share.com helps you book your next Mountain Climbing trip in Lanin.

Located in Huiliches, near the city of Junín de los Andes, on the border between Argentina and Chile, Lanin is the highest volcano in Patagonia. Its 3776 meters of height and its perfect cone shape painted white by the snow, give name to the famous Lanin National Park (Argentina) and Villarrica National Park (Chile). The Lanin Volcano is a symbol of the Province of Neuquén, whose figure is part of the provincial shield. In addition, it is considered a sacred site for the Mapuche communities, native people of the region. Its ascent by the north face is relatively simple. That route goes from the Tromen Lake up to the Mamuil Malal Pass. The ascent can be done in one day if participants have a proper fitness condition. Keep in mind that getting to the summit takes about 7 hours as well as for the descent. For those who prefer a gentler and quieter climb there is the option of spending the night in a mountain hut and ascend Lanin in two days. Select one of our trips below to reach the Lanin summit in the company of an expert. Explore-Share.com only promotes trips led by certified mountain guides.

Climbing Lanin Volcano, 3776m

My rating for the winter ascent of Lanin volcano is 10/10 in every possible aspect. Luis organized perfectly well the whole ascent and assembled a great team of guides (Ramiro, Gabriel and Jonathan) who came with him to the mountain. The day before, we met in San Martin to check the equipment. On day one, after the hike up to the refuge, we went over the techniques and gear needed for the summit day (self-arrest, avalanche safety equipment, etc.). Summit day is demanding, but exceptional! The views from the summit include Villarica, Llaima and Copahue volcanoes to the north, and Tronador, Puntiagudo and Osorno to the south. Booking through Explore-Share was very smooth and easy, the customer service is the best!

Climbing Lanin Volcano, 3776m

Luis es un guía absolutamente maravilloso, con un conocimiento de la montaña superlativo que nos dio seguridad y permitió disfrutar incluso con condiciones climáticas difíciles. Tiene un gran manejo de grupo, firme y amable a la vez, con sentido del humor y gran amor por la naturaleza. Los seis días de la transvolcánica fueron mágicos y estoy a la expectativa de una nueva travesía.
