This Lanin Volcano 2-day guided ascent is ideal for those climbers who are taking their first steps in mountaineering. Follow me and discover one of the most outstanding Andean mountains in the wild region of Patagonia!
On the border between Argentina and Chile and at an altitude of 3,776 m, this mythical Andean massif is awe-inspiring. This powerful summit offers spectacular views of the Andes Mountains and even of some Chilean volcanoes, which can be seen during the ascent.
Our meeting point will be in San Martin de Los Andes where we’ll have a meeting the day before start off. Then, on the following morning, we’ll leave at 7 am and go directly to the Lanin Volcano National Park. Once we are all set, we’ll ascend to the refuge area (2,400 m) where we’ll rest and prepare for our summit attack. Please take into account, that depending on weather conditions and other factors, there might be some slight changes to the program.
It’s essential to be in good physical shape to join this adventure, however, no technical mountaineering skills are required. Of course, I will be there to help and guide you! Furthermore, this expedition will be a great way to incorporate new mountaineering skills, including walking with crampons, using an ice-axe and basic knots. For a more detailed description of the program, take a look at the itinerary below!

On the day before we start this expedition, we’ll have a meeting
where we’ll check our equipment, the last minute details and clarify any doubts that may arise.
We’ll leave San Martin de los Andes at 7 am and go directly to the Lanin Volcano (100 km).
Once we arrive, we’ll check at the park ranger’s office and once we are all set, we’ll begin ascending all the way to the refuge area (2,400 m).
The hike up is calm and slow where we’ll ascend between 4 and 5 hours around 1,300 meters. Once in the shelters, we’ll rest and prepare for our summit attempt.
During this break, we’ll practice walking with crampons as well as self-arrest techniques with pickaxes.
We’ll enjoy an early dinner and then go to sleep.
We’ll start ascending around 3 am. Depending on the weather conditions and on the conditions of the volcano, it is possible that the first part of the ascent will be on rocks but thanks to our equipment we’ll be able to walk safely on the hard snow.
Depending on the group and the weather conditions, our summit attempt will take us between 5 and 7 hours and once at the summit, we will enjoy our well-deserved prize.
The descent will be as demanding as the ascent and will also require a lot of work and concentration. Once we are back at the shelters, we’ll take our overnight equipment and continue descending to the base where a vehicle will be waiting for us to take us back to San Martín de los Andes.
In total we’ll be walking between 10 and 13 hours of activity.

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 !"
