Con sus 3776 mts de altura, el volcán Lanín es la cumbre más alta de la región y da nombre al Parque Nacional en el que se halla enclavado.
El ascenso comienza en la seccional Río Turbio de Guardaparques, en la base del volcán, a unos 1100 mts de altura. La ruta conocida como “normal”, es la que nos llevará por la cara norte del cerro, recorriendo parte de la “espina de pescado”, una formación rocosa de residuos glaciarios; para luego desviar por el “camino de mulas” que abandonaremos al llegar al refugio que el Guardaparque nos haya designado.
Nos encontramos cerca de los 2500 mts de altura, dependiendo del refugio, y allí disfrutaremos de un merecido descanso luego de 5 o 6 horas (aprox) de marcha. En esta primera etapa no es raro observar la presencia de una familia de cóndores que suele sobrevolar la zona.
Nuestra segunda jornada comienza temprano, antes de la salida del sol, de modo de aprovechar la dureza de la nieve, la menor exposición a los rayos solares y las disposiciones de Parques Nacionales. Esta etapa, que puede durar entre 5 y 8 horas (aprox) nos llevará, si se dan todas las condiciones, hasta la cumbre del volcán, a 3776 mts de altura. Desde allí podremos apreciar en toda su magnificencia la belleza de la vista de los cordones montañosos vecinos y los distintos espejos de agua.
El descenso transcurre por la misma ruta de ascenso y, previa parada en el refugio para descansar y recuperar energías, culminará en la base del volcán luego de una jornada larga y plena de satisfacciones que siempre será recordada.

I am very pleased with Explore-Share! This was my first international climb, and the communication and response time were great. Herbie is a very skilled guide and very efficient. The entire booking process & payment was smooth. I will definitely use Explore-Share again. Thank you.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
