Description

The Lanin Volcano (3,776 m) is a perfect cone-shaped volcano in the Andes Mountains, lying on the border between Chile and Argentina. It is one of the mythical mountaineering ascents in Patagonia.

I invite you to join me on this 2-day program and reach the summit of Lanin starting from San Martin de los Andes, in the Neuquen Province.

The ascent is possible throughout the year, with the the summer season, from October to March, being the most convenient. Patagonia has a temperate to cold climate, but weather predictions allow us to climb in excellent weather conditions.

The small mountain village of San Martin de los Andes is an excellent meeting point, since it offers many accommodation options in hostels, hotels or cabins. Bear in mind this is not a technically difficult ascent, although you need an excellent fitness level.

On the first day, we will approach the base of the volcano by car from San Martin de los Andes in about 2 hours. Once at the base, we will distribute the technical equipment and part of the food that we will take in our backpacks.

From the volcano base, it takes 4 to 6 hours to reach the shelters, domes or tents, where we will spend the night for the ascent to the summit the next day. Once in the shelters, after a frugal snack, we will carry out some practices with a self-locking pick in the snow and the use of crampons.

On the second day, we will start the ascent very early, around 2 and 5 a.m. It takes about 6 hours to reach the summit of the Lanin Volcano, and it will take us between 3 and 5 hours to get back to the refuge, where you can rest and then return to the base of the volcano in about 4 hours.

If you want to join me on this 2-day ascent, just send me a request. Book your trip and get ready for a great mountaineering experience in the Andes!

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
