2 Days

Sep, Oct




  • Take your first steps in mountaineering with the help of an expert guide.
  • Explore the amazing Argentinean and Chilean Patagonia.
  • Discover Northern Patagonia's lakes, valleys and mountains.


Come join me on this Puyehue Volcano 2-day guided ascent and discover this Patagonian treasure! This trip is ideal for those who are taking their first steps in mountaineering.

With its enchanted forests, active volcanoes covered in snow and crystal-clear lakes, Patagonia promises a world of adventures. And with 123 active volcanoes, Chile offers one of the most amazing landscapes in the region.  During this program, we’ll travel all the way from the northern Argentinean Patagonia to Chile, where the Puyehue Volcano (2,240 m) awaits us. 

Located in the Andes Mountains, in the Los Lagos Region, this active volcano is famous for its enormous crater and for being one of the most accesible volcanoes in the country. Once we reach Puyehue’s summit, we’ll be able to observe the crater’s interior and at the same time, marvel at the incredible views of the Andes Mountains. Furthermore, bear in mind that although this program is suitable for beginners and intermediate climbers, it’s important that all participants are physically fit. 

Regarding our starting point, our adventure can kick off from San Martin de los Andes or Villa La Angostura. Both of these magical spots are in the Argentine province of Neuquén and from there, we’ll cross over to Chile through the Cardenal Samoré International Pass. For a more detailed description of the trip, take a look at the itinerary below!

So, are you ready to put some new mountaineering skills to the test? Then send your request, I guarantee this will be an amazing experience!

Day 1: Meeting point in San Martin de los Andes or Villa La Angostura

Early in the morning we’ll leave from San Martin de los Andes or Villa La Angostura towards the Cardenal Samoré International Pass. Once we cross the Chilean border, we’ll travel a few kilometers until we reach the entrance to the farm where the trail starts.

The trek starts and runs initially in the Valdivian forest. In this amazing forest we’ll discover a charming wooden shelter where we will spend the night under the light of candles.

Day 2: Puyehue Volcano ascent

We’ll wake up really early in the morning, have a delicious breakfast and before dawn we’ll start with the ascent.

At the beginning of the path, we’ll cross through several tall grasslands and then w’ll encounter with rocks and snow that will make it easier to walk.

The ascent will last between 3 to 4 hours until we arrive to the crater. From there, we’ll enjoy amazing views of this crater’s interior.

We’ll descend towards the shelter and from there, we’ll continue descending to our vehicles which will take us back to Argentina.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
