My husband and I arranged to climb this volcano with a local guide. While the guide was fantastic - I can't understate how difficult the climb was. We have "climbed" several (hiking / scrambling) mountains around the world and have also completed many multi-day treks, but an ascent of 1500 vertical meters over 6kms (12kms return - taking 10 hours)... 更多
Situated on the other side of the Llanquihue lake (that means you are by the Osorno volcano on the kake itself or by the shore) and looking north you will have the chance to contemplate the Calbuco volcano.

We travelled here about 6 months after it erupted in April. The evidence was very visible and it was wonderful to learn about the volcano and the impact on the community and how it is dealt with.
The drive up to the base of the chairlifts has wonderful views. The snow capped volcano very photogenic. Unfortunately it was hot and hazy when I visited and the views were not at their best. The chairlifts are expensive, so pick your day with care. There are some good walks up there too.
It was cloudy, so we had no chance to see volcan actually, but the road, chandes of flora and fauna there are impressing. And we took some lava stones for the gifts to our friends :D!
