Volcan Calbuco, Puerto Varas

4.6
#5 of 7 in Parks in Puerto Varas
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.

  • When we were now in October 2017 was no longer allowed to climb Volcán Calbuco. With the last eruption, in 2015, 7 more craters opened in your surroundings. But your view is beautiful and enfeitava the window of our cottage. Locals say it is the most unstable and dangerous volcano in the country. But it is beautiful! If you want to climb a volcano, I suggest raising the Osorno, which has all infrastructure to get car and "telesillas" (cable car) to the top.

  • Beautiful place, since the path to the top we see beautiful landscapes, as we ascend the Lake and Calbuco volcano can be seen very well we got the two stretches of ski lifts, there is a cafeteria in the parking lot, rent appropriate clothing for the snow. Close 17:30

  • Although it may seem harmless and say nothing in sight, this volcano is one of the most dangerous in the South of Chile. It is in a short stretch of the road.

Where to stay in Puerto Varas

To enjoy views of the volcano, stay as close to the edge of Llanquihue Lake as possible.
