Highlights

 
     

    Licancabur Volcano is a stratovolcano that belongs to the Andes and is located on the border between Chile and Bolivia. Due to its shape, this peak is one of the most characteristic volcanoes of the area. It has an altitude of 5,972 meters and is considered to be a sacred place in the Inca culture.

    Our trip will start in San Pedro de Atacama, in the northern area of Chile. On day 1, we’ll go from this area to the border with Bolivia and visit the beautiful Laguna Verde, at the base of the mountain. On day 2, we’ll begin our trek to the summit of Licancabur and you will get to see its incredible crater.

    This is a challenging excursion. Therefore, take into account that you should have a very good fitness level to take this trip. Of course, I will be there to help and guide you on the way. 

    So do you find this program tempting? Then send your request now and explore this Andes jewel. I will be happy to guide you to the summit.

    I also lead a trekking program to El Morado and a mountaineering trip to Cerro Unión, both in Chile. Check them out!

    Thanks to Carlos and explore- share staff:) My experience with booking through explore-share and climbing to Mount Blanc with Carlos were fantastic! He is very easy going and flexible.

    The guide is friendly and attention to safety. But the arrangement of such time and place is not suitable for us. The first day took the cable car at 1:30 PM and then take the train, stay in Tête Rousse refuge, only spend 5 hours total. And midnight at 2:00 Am started to climb to the summit and straightly back to the train station to catch the train at 5 Pm. It would take 15 hours. The physical strength of the two days was too unbalanced. In fact, I would not have these problems If we stayed in the Gouter refuge on the first day. My husband and I knew that will be a big test for us, but it doesn\'t mean we want to give up the climb to the summit. The uncomfortable thing is, The guide asked to go back even we didn\'t see the Mont Blanc. I am very upset, but the guide insists that I don\'t have a way to resist. My husband and I just slowly walk with disappointment. At 9 Am we arrived at Tête Rousse refuge, and slowly took a meal, slowly descended the mountain, and arrived at the train station at 1 o\'clock, not 5 pm. We spent time and money to climb our dream Mountain, but this is the result, very dissatisfied of.

    Carlos is an unbelievable guide and I would recommend him to anyone considering any trip with him. He is very knowledgeable but relaxed with how he treats his clients. Would absolutely hire him again
