Description

The Colorado Volcano is located 14 km from San Martin de los Andes, a beautiful town in the Argentine province of Neuquén. Let’s reach its summit in a 1-day guided ascent!

The Colorado Volcano is one of the typical mountains of the area since it can be climbed throughout the year. However, the use of snowshoes is mandatory during the winter.

Our starting point will be the Lanín National Park, in the town of San Martin de los Andes. The ascent route up to the Colorado Volcano summit begins in front of the “Trompul Stone”. After crossing a small stream the trail goes up in a steady climb. During this section we will walk through a forest of Ñires, Colihues, Lengas and Reeds.

Once we are near the summit of the Colorado Volcano, we’ll start to see volcanic remains as well as imposing views of the Lanín, Villarrica and Mocho Chos Huenco volcanoes.

This ascent does not involve any technical difficulty. That is why it’s a suitable program for all levels of mountaineers, even for those who have no prior experience.

As a local mountain guide I know the area perfectly and I can take you among the best places and the most amazing viewpoints of the Andes Mountain Range.

I have done between 30 and 40 ascents to Lanin per season, which gives me the experience and security to plan the safest programs with the best services.

In addition to Lanin, I also specialize in guided tours to Domuyo and Tromen volcanos, and traverses in the San Martin de los Andes area.

What people are saying about Luis

My rating for the winter ascent of Lanin volcano is 10/10 in every possible aspect. Luis organized perfectly well the whole ascent and assembled a great team of guides (Ramiro, Gabriel and Jonathan) who came with him to the mountain. The day before, we met in San Martin to check the equipment. On day one, after the hike up to the refuge, we went over the techniques and gear needed for the summit day (self-arrest, avalanche safety equipment, etc.). Summit day is demanding, but exceptional! The views from the summit include Villarica, Llaima and Copahue volcanoes to the north, and Tronador, Puntiagudo and Osorno to the south. Booking through Explore-Share was very smooth and easy, the customer service is the best!

Luis es un guía absolutamente maravilloso, con un conocimiento de la montaña superlativo que nos dio seguridad y permitió disfrutar incluso con condiciones climáticas difíciles. Tiene un gran manejo de grupo, firme y amable a la vez, con sentido del humor y gran amor por la naturaleza. Los seis días de la transvolcánica fueron mágicos y estoy a la expectativa de una nueva travesía.
