Jan, Feb, Mar, Dec




The Pili Volcano is also known as the Acamarachi volcano and is part of the Andes mountain range. This Chilean stratovolcano is located in the region of Antofagasta, southeast of San Pedro de Atacama.  At 6,046 meters above sea level, its summit presents one of the most challenging mountaineering adventures of the country.

During our first day, we will explore the Salar de Pujsa. Located at 4,600 meters, in Los Flamencos National Reserve, participants will be able to enjoy a spectacular landscape of mountains, streams and lagoons. Regarding our accommodation, we will sleep in comfortable and cozy tents while enjoying the silence of Mother Nature.

It will be on our second day that we will take on the Pili Volcano. In its crater, we will discover the highest lake in Chile and one of the highest in the world: Lake Acamarachi (5,950 meters).

Keep in mind that the duration of the ascent will be 7 hours and it will take us 3 hours to descend.

The Pili Volcano (6,046 meters) is the highest volcano in northern Chile and is located in the Central Volcanic Zone of the Andes. So if you are ready for this 2-day adventure in one of Chile’s most beautiful volcanoes, request to book this trip and get ready for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure!

The excursion to the Pili volcano can be done in 1 or 2 days depending on the participants wishes. If you are looking for a more challenging trip or you don’t have enough time for a two day guided ascent, you can also join me on this Pili Volcano (6,046 m) one day guided ascent

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 great.  Christian was an excellent guide.

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
