Volcan Calbuco, Puerto Varas

4.5
#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.

  • After last the eruption, already there is nothing of volcano, is a rather ugly and little picturesque lava Hill.

  • This is a fantastic place to visit if you enjoy the great outdoors. The views on a clear day were awesome.  more »
  • Nice visual, especially along with the volcano Osorno and LLanquihue Lake. One of the active volcanoes of Chile right next to you.

  • Access to former refuge is with snow, is necessary the use of gaiters, Poles, covers pants and of course boots. The trek up to the Summit, this date should be with adequate equipment, i.e. mountain. Example: ice axes, crampons, helmet, etc. The shelter is under snow, destroyed. But there is a kind of barbecue in which enters a tent for two persons. Keep cleaning and care of the place, since many have that point to rest. Important, do not you interfieras in the flora and fauna... bring your garbage or which find! :D
