You will discover amazing landscapes and mountain views on your way to the top of this stunning volcano in the Andes. From the Villarrica summit, it is possible to observe the amazing view of an open crater with a pool of boiling lava inside.

Villarrica is a great summit for beginners in a good physical condition, and it does not require participants to have previous mountaineering experience. We will meet at our agency in Pucón, and from there head to the Volcano base.

We will meet at our agency in Pucón early in the morning, at 06:30. We will give you a backpack with the certified technical equipment necessary to perform the activity (shoes, crampons, helmet, 2 pairs of gloves, gas filter mask, ice ax, jacket and windbreaker pants).

At 06:45 am we will head towards the Villarrica volcano base and we will start trekking at 07:30 hrs. We will reach the summit at about 14:00 h. From the top you will get an amazing panoramic view of all the other volcanoes of the region.

Then we will begin the descent, sliding on the snow, like on natural tobogans, enjoying a spectacular view towards the volcanoes and lakes of this region. At about 17:00 h we will be back in our office in Pucón.

I am very pleased with Explore-Share! This was my first international climb, and the communication and response time were great. Herbie is a very skilled guide and very efficient. The entire booking process & payment was smooth. I will definitely use Explore-Share again. Thank you.



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.
