The San Jose volcano is located at an altitude of 5856 m. (19212 ft.) in the Central Andes in Chile. It is known as the silent giant and is the highest southernmost volcano in the stunning Andes range. Boasting stunning views of other amazing mountains in the region such as Aconcagua, Marmolejo, Cerro Plomo, Paloma and others, climbing this stunning peak is a rewarding challenge that also serves as a great acclimatization trek for those that also wish to climb Aconcagua.

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.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
