1-day ascent to Lascar Volcano in northern Chile 1

Follow a Vulcano Expediciones' guide on this 1-day trip and reach the summit of the incredible Lascar Volcano in San Pedro de Atacama, Chile.

Not specified


1 Day

All year




With 5,592 meters of altitude, Lascar Volcano is a stratovolcano located near San Pedro de Atacama, in the Antofagasta region of Chile.

Our tour will start at 5 in the morning. After 3 hours, we’ll reach the Lejía Lake and enjoy breakfast. This is one of the salt lakes from The Altiplano and it is located at 4,325 meters above sea level. Then we’ll get to the base of the mountain, at 4,900 meters. It will take us around 4 to 5 hours to reach the summit of the Lascar Volcano. Afterwards, we’ll return and finish our trip at 18 p.m.  

This ascent is technically easy. Although special equipment is not necessary, I recommend you to bring trekking boots. If you are planning to take this trip during the winter, to bring your low temperatures equipment will be important.

About lead guide, Christian Fernandez:

I’m originally from Argentina, but live in Chile since 1998. Now I’m settled in the north of Chile, in San Pedro de Atacama, beautiful town in the heart of the Andean section of the dry Atacama dessert.

From there I organize many expeditions to beautiful peaks on a weekly basis. I’ve done more than 300 high altitude ascents, and more than 25 peaks over 6000 metres.

I speak English, Spanish and Portuguese.

This is an easy assent! I ended up paying $200 for a two hour experience and an apple and piece of chocolate ( lunch 😳) If you plan on doing this hike which I highly recommend, don’t book it with these guys - total rip off!! You can go with a group for about $70 if you book locally from San Pedro! It’s a beautiful view from the summit! It’s not even hard to get there ( they drive you most of the way!) My guide was lovely, great chat, nice person but trust me $200 is a massive massive massive rip off for this ‘experience’

The trip was great.  Christian was an excellent guide.

The trip was a great experience with a wonderful view! However, unfortunately the tour description does not fit with the actual tour. There was no breakfast with acclimatisation and the duration was shorter. Most important the tour was not guided by Christian, but by some of his employes which did not speak English so we didn't get much explanations except some fragments that we understood in Spanish. Therefore we were a litlle disappointed concerning the guide of this tour.

Are you up for a rewarding adventure - go for the Lascar Volcano. Our very experienced guide Christian Fernandez made sure everything was in place for a great experience, from safe driving to making breakfast to setting a good pace for reaching the top without being too affected by the altitude. Stunning views and a great sense of accomplishment, our thanks to Christian and explore-share.com for a truly memorable hike. Best regards, Erik (37) and Christopher (30), Norway
