Description

On this wonderful 3 day adventure, I would like to guide you to the summits of 2 fantastic volcanoes in Chile: Ollague (5,870m) and Aucanquilcha (6,176m). 

On the first day of this expedition, we will make our way to the Ollague sector. From there, we will settle in for the night in a local shelter. In the area, you will also be able to meet local people in the area. Thus giving you a chance to appreciate the lovely culture of those who call this amazing region home.

On the second day of this expedition, we will climb to the top of Ollague. The climb should take approximately 5 hours. And when we reach the top, because the peak rests on the border of Bolivia, you will be able to gaze deep into that nation, as well as into Chile. We will spend the night in a local shelter at the end of the day.

On the final day of this expedition, you will be properly acclimatized. As a result, you will be ready to scale Aucanquilcha. We will start the journey very early in the morning. The time required for the ascent and descent will take approximately 8 to 9 hours. The climb will be tough at times, but I will be there to make sure you make it safely and successfully. And it will be well worth it because the views from the summit, in conjunction with the sunrise, are absolutely breathtaking.

So come and join me on this amazing adventure. Climb to the summits of 2 of Chile’s most beautiful volcanoes: Ollague and Aucanquilcha. All you have to do to be a part of it is send me a request!

Would you like to scale another Chilean volcano, but only have 1 day? That’s not a problem because I can also lead you to the top of the Lascar volcano on this trip.

About lead guide, Christian Fernandez:

I’m originally from Argentina, but live in Chile since 1998. Now I’m settled in the north of Chile, in San Pedro de Atacama, beautiful town in the heart of the Andean section of the dry Atacama dessert.

From there I organize many expeditions to beautiful peaks on a weekly basis. I’ve done more than 300 high altitude ascents, and more than 25 peaks over 6000 metres.

I speak English, Spanish and Portuguese.

This is an easy assent! I ended up paying $200 for a two hour experience and an apple and piece of chocolate ( lunch 😳) If you plan on doing this hike which I highly recommend, don’t book it with these guys - total rip off!! You can go with a group for about $70 if you book locally from San Pedro! It’s a beautiful view from the summit! It’s not even hard to get there ( they drive you most of the way!) My guide was lovely, great chat, nice person but trust me $200 is a massive massive massive rip off for this ‘experience’

The trip was a great experience with a wonderful view! However, unfortunately the tour description does not fit with the actual tour. There was no breakfast with acclimatisation and the duration was shorter. Most important the tour was not guided by Christian, but by some of his employes which did not speak English so we didn't get much explanations except some fragments that we understood in Spanish. Therefore we were a litlle disappointed concerning the guide of this tour.

Are you up for a rewarding adventure - go for the Lascar Volcano. Our very experienced guide Christian Fernandez made sure everything was in place for a great experience, from safe driving to making breakfast to setting a good pace for reaching the top without being too affected by the altitude. Stunning views and a great sense of accomplishment, our thanks to Christian and explore-share.com for a truly memorable hike. Best regards, Erik (37) and Christopher (30), Norway
