Volcan Calbuco, Puerto Varas
(4.7/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I didn't really volcanoes, and the have in a place so added magic to the visit. Not only the Vocan Calbuco (having to have erupted not long ago, blunt) can see, but that the Osorno volcano, you can admire for which words are poor if you wanted to describe its beauty. Both are are Sentinel behind the Lake and all the towns that are on the banks have a special magic. Puerto Varas me surprised, for being a very tidy, fishing village with friendly people and correct and with a British tinge, which, when it comes to order, always adds. We could even taste gastronomic varieties in the world in a London street market. Certainly a strangely beautiful town for its mix of influences in the customs.

  • very nice, attractive, beautiful view, the road more than cute, winding road and complicated with snow in the winter

  • Worth knowing the location, only way to get it is to take the breath away. As the cable car I climbed on two levels, but I confess that I was too much adventure for my taste.
