Description

This program offers you an ascent to Lanin Volcano at 3.776 meters, an iconic mountain of the North of Argentina Patagonia. It is located in the province of Neuquen and it is a famous volcano because of the wide difference of height from the other mountains of the area. You can see Lanin Volcano from very different points of the zone. Besides, it has a conical shape and amazing geometric lines.

It is also a perfect mountain for those who are giving the first steps in mountaineering, but we cannot underestimate its difficulty. You have to overcome irregular ground in few meters with physical requirements and a hard Patagonian weather.

This program is proposing doing the ascent in two days, leaving from San Martin de los Andes. We offer a variety of dates with open vacancies in order you can join us whenever you want. You can also ask for private expeditions.

Recommended itinerary:

DAY 1

We leave San Martín de Los Andes at 6.30 AM towards Lanin Volcano base, where will be at 9.00 AM. Once in there we will registrer our ascent in National Parks. Then, we will finish to organize our backpacks and start the hike up to one of the mountain huts designed to overnight. The first one is at 2.300 meters and the second one at 2.500. Getting there will take us about 4 or 5 hours.

DAY 2
We start the way to the summit by 2 AM because the ascent will take about between 6 and 7 hours. Once in there, we will celebrate our goal for a while if weather conditions allow us. Then, we hike down for 4 hours. After a rest we start the return towards the volcano foot during the following 3 hours, where the vehicles will be waiting to take us back to San Martín de los Andes.
