Ermitano Expediciones

Tourism agency in Pucón, Araucanía, Chile

Lanín volcano ascent, 3,776masl.

The Lanín volcano stretches 3,776 meters above sea level, making it the highest volcano in the Araucanía region. It’s located on the border of Chile and Argentina, but we always climb from Chilean side. Its long and tiring ascent will be rewarded by an incredible view from the summit where you will be able to admire several volcanoes, lakes, and huge expanses of forests, including those in the Andes mountain range. This activity lasts two full days. We’ll make camp at 2,900 meters to help you to acclimatize, and we’ll reach the summit on the second day.
