Join me for a fantastic hiking trip to the spectacular Sairecabur Volcano. Located in the border between Chile and Bolivia, this beautiful peak in the Andes reaches 6.040 meters above sea level. You'll be amazed every step of the way!

This trip starts very early, at 4.30 AM so we can enjoy the views with the beautiful sunshine. We'll ride for two hours from San Pedro de Atacama. Once we are at the base of the volcano, we'll enjoy breakfast together to get filled up with energy. Then the adventure begins. We'll hike for 5 to 6 hours and discover the beauties of the Chilean landscape.

The Sairecabur Volcano is considered to be an intermediate trek. It is one of the easiest 6.000-meter peak in the Andes, but getting to the top implies getting used to the altitude and air pressure, which can be challenging. I will guide you every step of the way, but do not overestimate the hike. No special equipment is necessary, other than hiking boots. I will provide you with oxygen and communications equipment. If you do decide to do this hike in the winter, do bring crampons and equipment for very low temperatures.

If you are as excited for this hike as I am, send me a message! I would love to guide you in this unique adventure.

I offer other hikes in Chile. If you are looking for more options, be sure to check out the ones I offer to Quebrada del Nacimiento, Las Cornisas and others.

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.
