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.

  • Where you can see the effects of the eruption of Calbuco volcano, the correntoso sector was cambaido and that all different, the waterfall is different. The Lake is a good place to see the nature of the Andes, in full mountain range., is worth a visit for a day, road asphalt and the last part of gravel road in good condition.

  • Chilean volcanoes, many of them active are forges in the world. From Puerto Varas you can access these majestic volcanoes such as the Calbuco on tour and through forests and meadows surrounding them to visit unforgettable landscapes. Wear comfortable clothes, shoes, camera and mate. Along the way they will offer you places where you can have lunch or afternoon snack.

  • 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

Where to stay in Puerto Varas
