This active volcano achieves an impressive height of 2,865 meters (9,395 feet) and has a crater that is about 700 meters (2,300 feet) wide. Get ready to descend a thrilling path surrounded by layers of ash, lava, and other volcanic debris.

This iconic cone-shaped stratovolcano rests in the Conguillío National Park, standing at a total height of 3,195 meters (10,482 feet). You will be able to admire stunning views of the surrounding landscape, including the Andes Mountains and the city of Temuco, once you reach its summit.

  3. Our next destination will be the famous "smoking mountain"; the Villarica Volcano. Its slopes offer a variety of terrain for skiers of all levels, which makes it a very popular destination. This 2,847 meters (9,337 feet) high giant is one of the most active volcanoes in Chile and has erupted several times in the past, most recently in 2015.

  4. Mocho-Choshuenco is a glacier-covered compound stratovolcano in the Andes of Los Ríos region. Rising to an incredible altitude of approximately 2,400 meters (7,874 feet), the volcano boasts two prominent peaks, namely Choshuenco and Mocho. These twin summits stand as iconic features of the volcano, each contributing to its unique allure.

  5. Finally, Osorno Volcano will be waiting for us as we reach the end of our trip, with an imposing height of 2,652 meters (8,701 feet).

Eduardo is INCREDIBLE - thoughtful, skilled, competent. I had the best time and my climbing improved at least one grade. Best recommendation!!



Eduardo did an excellent job guiding us on backcountry tours in the Farellones area in Chile! Communication before the trip was excellent. He was on time both days. He listened to what we asked and delivered exactly what we were looking for. He was knowledgeable, fun to hang out with, and his English was excellent. We could not have asked for a better guide!
