Join Daniel, an AAGM-certified local guide, on this 2-day ascent to the Lanin Volcano summit in Patagonia, from San Martin de los Andes in the Neuquen province in Argentina.
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!
From our hotel, we approach the base of the volcano by car in 2 hours. If you do not have a vehicle, you will be provided transportation at no cost. Once at the base, we need to confirm our presence in the park at the National Parks delegation. Then we will distribute the technical equipment and part of the food that each person will carry in the backpacks.
It takes between 4 and 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 training with a self-locking pick in the snow and the use of crampons. Dinner is planned between 6 and 8 pm.
The day starts early, between 2 and 5 a.m. And it takes about 6 hours to reach the summit of the Lanin Volcano. It will take us between 3 and 5 hours to get back to the shelters, where you can rest and then return to the base of the volcano in about 4 hours.
There are plenty of options in San Martin de los Andes (hotel-hostel-cabin).
We recommended you to bring hiking boots, walking sticks, sunglasses, sunscreen and some food for the hike,

I'm a certified mountain guide with many years of experience. I'm also an active climber: I practice both rock climbing and alpinism. I've climbed Fitz Roy and some other needles in El Chalten and consider myself a passionate climber.
I love to share this passion with my clients!

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
