  • Climb the iconic Osorno volcano in Chile

The Osorno volcano is an iconic mountain in the Los Lagos region of Chile. On this 1-day climbing trip, we will reach its summit and traverse through a beautiful glacier using ropes and safety equipment. From the summit, we will enjoy 360-degree views of the whole region.

This giant volcano is surrounded by the Todos Los Santos lake to the east and the Llanquihue lake to the west. Although the volcano has been inactive for over a century, it has impressive cracks and rising clouds. The panoramic view from the summit is truly unique and offers a glimpse of the surrounding volcanos and lakes.

In order to join this adventure, you will need to be physically fit. This is a challenging climb and you need regular training in order to safely climb the mountain.

If you would like to reach the summit of the gorgeous Osorno volcano, then send us your request and we can start planning this exciting adventure together! We look forward to guiding you!
