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.

So, if you find this 1-day ascent in the Colorado Volcano interesting and want to join me, please fill out the form and put in touch with me now!
