Create an itinerary including Volcan Osorno
Admire the perfect conical peak of Volcan Osorno, which looms large over Chile's Llanquihue Lake. Despite many eruptions, the volcano's top has never blown, allowing it to retain its immaculate peak. Wait for the clouds to disperse and then take an incredible picture of the volcano from anywhere in the nearby area--you don't have to get particularly close to appreciate its beauty. If you visit in winter, you can tick off an item on the bucket list by skiing down the volcano, which features a fully serviced ski resort.

  • We visited as part of a tour. The view of the volcano from the Petrohue waterfalls and the Todos Los Santos Lake were both absolutely spectacular on a clear sunny day. Visiting the volcano itself...

  • If you're in the area this is a "must do". There's a considerable drive from the main road around the lake up to the chairlift base station. Allow time - it twists and winds and is steep in places.....  more

  • Beautiful, much photographed volcano, which dominates the Lake Llanquihue area. The drive to Osorno is beautiful as well.

  • I love this mountain. It looks like it came right from a dream. The near perfect symmetry, and the snow cap. Utterly brilliant. There are many hikes around here, and I would recommend spending a couple days getting to know the area.
  • Osorno Volcano is such an iconic landmark in this area. It was beautiful to see from so many angles as we traveled in this area. We hiked a portion of the volcano from the ski area - amazing views, interesting rock features and colours! The snow cap looked ominous; a stark contrast to the lava below.
  • The road up has asphalt,we went up with a small Chevrolet Spark 2 people plus package. From the parking you can continue closer to the Glacier by 2 lifts. The lift costs 18000$ per person for going up and down. From the lift it is a short hike to the ice fields.
  • Some pretty sights that's for sure. If you're driving up there, make sure you have excellent brakes on your vehicle! You're going to need them.
  • Such a beautiful part of Chile. Photo taken from the banks of Lagos Todos Los Santos
