Description

Follow me on this incredible adventure across the Los Lagos Region in the Chilean Patagonia. This marvellous place is home of many natural wonders, including the Hornopiren, Yate, Calbuco and Osorno volcanoes.

The Los Lagos Region comprises the provinces of Palena, Osorno, Llanquihue and Chiloe. It contains Chile’s second largest island: Chiloe, along with its second biggest lake, Llanquihue. And its capital is Puerto Montt.

Please note this is a private trip. And its itinerary is open. Therefore it can last several days depending on the places you wish to visit and the expectations you have of this program.

For instance, one of the places we can visit includes Hornopiren (1,572 m), a stratovolcano in the major regional Liquine-Ofqui Fault. Its name comes from the words pirén, which means snow in the native Mapudungun, and oven in Spanish. Thus, it translates to snow oven.

Then, very close to Hornopiren, we can find the Yate Volcano (2,187 m). This impressive stratovolcano offers one of the safest hikes, as there are no historical records of volcanic activity in recent times.

Calbuco is another majestic stratovolcano we can explore. Located northwest of Chapo Lake and close to the cities of Puerto Montt and Puerto Varas, it rises at 2,015 meters.

Finally, we can visit the Osorno Volcano (2,652 m), one of the most active volcanoes in the area. This tall conical stratovolcano stands at the shore of the dazzling Llanquihue and Santos Lakes. And one of its most impressive features is its similarity with Mount Fuji. Hence, it is a symbol of the local sceneries.

Would you like to join this amazing journey? Just send me a request. I promise it will be an unforgettable trip in Chile.

Looking to further explore the area? I also guide this trekking and canyoning in La Junta, Cochamo Valley (3 days).

About the guide

Since I was a child, my life has been jumping, swimming, flying, climbing, sliding and running down the mountain, dreaming that someday this would become my profession so I could share my sensations, experiences and acquired knowledge.

I have spent more than fifteen years working and travelling in Spain (Pyrenees), Italy (Dolomites), Chamonix (Alps), Morocco (Atlas), Kyrgyzstan (Pamir) and currently in Chile (Patagonia). A long time teaching and helping others out in the mountains!

I am an AEGM certified guide (Spanish Association of Mountain Guides), a UIMLA Mountain Leader (Union of International Mountain Leader Associations) and an ISIA certified instructor (International Association of Ski Instructors).

I like to guide small groups and to offer tailor-made trips. So I customize my programs to the wishes and needs of the client. My goal is to provide a high quality service while of course having a good time with my clients.
