Not specified


2 Days

Jan, Feb, Nov, Dec


The outstanding Osorno Volcano has a privileged panoramic view of fields, forests and lakes from its summit. The ascent is a magical experience. It’s a moment of encounter with nature and oneself.

Moreover, its shape ideally synthesizes what a volcano means. Its colors are unique as well as its slopes and its summit. In fact, for almost every day of the year it remains covered with white and always virgin snow.

The Osorno Volcano is located 60 kilometers from the Northwest of Puerto Varas, in Chile. It has an altitude of 2,661 meters. And thanks to its height you will admire an imposing and typical postcard of the landscape of this Chilean region.

This 2-day mountaineering tour starts in San Martin of the Andes, on the Argentina side. From there we’ll go in direction to the Cardenal Samoré International Pass. Once we finish the immigration papers we’ll continue to Puerto Montt. After lunch, we’ll keep walking to the Osorno Volcano hut, where we’ll spend the night. This mountain lodge has food and drinks services, beds and toilet facilities.

In our second day we’ll have breakfast and start the ascent to the Osorno Volcano summit. The first section is by a footpath. Then we’ll cross a small glacier, which is gradually taking an inclination of 50 degrees. In the last section, we must use fixed ropes in order to ensure the ascent and descent.

Once we reach the summit and after a well-deserved rest, we’ll return down to the mountain hut. The round trip will take us around 10 hours. Once we are in the refuge, we go back to the city of San Martin de los Andes.

Finally, keep in mind that this is a demanding ascent. Therefore, you need to have a good physical condition and a basic mountaineering knowledge.

So, if you are ready for this big adventure please get in touch with me and book your place. I can promise you will live a unique expedition in one of the best spots of the Andes.

About the guide

Argentine professional Mountain Guide (AAGM-PNL)

I was born in the Andes area, North Patagonia, and I am a certified guide from the Argentina Mountain Guides Association.

I specialize in guided tours to Lanin volcano, by the normal route or other alternative routes and I also have the authorization of Lanin National Park since 2003. 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.

I am also an Ecomed lifeguard, and I have done the rescue courses in a leadership and natural environment.



What people are saying about Luis Fabra

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.
