Early in the morning we’ll have our first meeting in the beautiful city of San Martin de los Andes where we’ll check our equipment and talk about the details of the program.
Then, in the afternoon, we’ll transfer to the town of Malacahuello, in Chile. It will take us 5 hours to arrive to this town and after a short stop, we’ll continue traveling up north. On our way, we’ll see the spectacular Lanin Volcano, located in the Lanin National Park.
This volcano will be the ideal mountain to start this expedition. It’ll be a magnificent experience before trying to ascend the following ones that are a little more demanding.
Once we finish with our first adventure, we’ll travel to the Malalcahuello National Park where the Llaima Volcano will be waiting for us.
Night in cabins.
This volcano presents a great challenge and participants will have to overcome more than 1,800 meters of altitude and it will take us about 10 hours to complete the entire expedition.
We will go through many places with hard snow and close to the summit it’s very likely that we’ll have to use ropes just to be safe.
Night in cabins
We will take the day off and prepare for our next and last objective: the Villarrica Volcano. On this day we’ll have the opportunity to relax in natural thermal waters.
Night in a hostel in the town of Pucón.
This last volcano is famous for its open crater. Furthermore, on certain days you can hear its impressive sounds and sometimes see some bubbles of magma.
Like the previous volcanos, it presents a softer slope at the beginning but from the middle upwards it poses a more challenging ascent.
The views from the summit are excellent, we’ll see the Andes Mountain Range to the east and the great Villarrica Lake to the west. In total it will take us between 7/8 hours (with a difference of 1,450 meters) to complete this expedition.
Back at the base we will return to San Martin de los Andes.
Night in a hostel.
After enjoying a delicious breakfast all together we’ll say goodbye.
