Volcan Calbuco, Puerto Varas

(280+ reviews on the web)
Volcano
Climb the area around a recently erupted volcano at Volcan Calbuco. The attraction erupted in April 2015, covering the surrounding countryside in volcanic ash. By August of the same year, officials reported the volcano alert levels of this site had returned to normal, and tourism opened to the area again. Although you cannot climb to the summit, you can explore the base to observe the snow-capped top of the mountain. You can take the cable car to ride up part of the mountain and hike from there to view lush flora; then head to the nearby lake for a swim after descending the volcano. Work out when and for how long to visit Volcan Calbuco and other Puerto Varas attractions using our handy Puerto Varas vacation generator.

  • The volcanoes of the region of the Andean Lakes, despite their size, are most of the time covered by clouds, even in summer. The Calbuco Volcano is active and is potentially fatal, since it is near the city of Puerto Varas.

  • Is a unique experience to climb the volcano, especially if it is snowy. It is worth climbing the ski lifts.

  • It is a volcano that is latent, two years ago the ashes spread through much of South America
