If you wish to take part of a fantastic ascent in Patagonia, this 2-day program in the Lanin Volcano is the perfect opportunity for you.

Located on the border area between Argentina and Chile, Lanin Volcano is an active stratovolcano and a very popular point of interest in Patagonia. At an altitude of 3,776 meters, it belongs to the Andes mountain range and it’s inside the Lanin National Park. On this 2-day program, I invite you to reach its summit.

On day 1, we’ll meet at 6.30 am in San Martin de los Andes and drive to the base of the volcano, at an altitude of 1,100 meters. From there, we’ll start a 4-6 hour trek to the base camp, at 2,300 meters. Then, on day 2, we’ll share breakfast at 3.00 am and begin the climb to the summit. After a long and challenging ascent (6-8 hours), we’ll get to the top of the volcano and celebrate. We’ll descend and have lunch around 3 pm in the base camp. Finally, we’ll return to the volcano’s foot. The complete duration of day 2 will be from 10 to 14 hours.

Although the itinerary is very demanding, I can assure you that it’s totally worth it. Reaching the Lanin summit in an exhilarating feat. Furthermore, from the top, we’ll be able to contemplate spectacular views of the Andes and its mountains, lakes, glaciers and forests. As for the requirements, it’s not mandatory to have any prior experience in mountaineering. However, you will need to be physically fit.

So, would you like to take part of this exciting ascent to Lanin Volcano summit? Then please send the request and make your reservation. I can assure you it will be an unforgettable experience!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
