Day 1: After meeting at the airport or bus terminal, we will head to the Puyehue area in the Osorno Province. We’ll set up our camp and have an afternoon free to explore Puyehue National Park and/or take a soak in “Aguas Calientes” hot springs. We’ll have dinner at the campsite.
Day 2: Our ascent of Casablanca Volcano starts in the early morning. We’ll chose one of two routes: “Laguna Bertin”, or the the normal route starting at the Antillanca ski resort. After the summit, we’ll head to the “City of Roses”, Puerto Varas and sleep in a cosy Bed & Breakfast Hostel.
Day 3: Our next destination is Llanquihue National Reserve where we will ascend the Calbuco Volcano. Our climb starts at nearly sea-level and reaches over 2,000m, allowing us to discover evergreen forests and enjoy incredible panoramas of the Pacific Ocean and Lake District far below.
Day 4: Rest or reserve day in case of bad weather. If you wish to go canyoning, rafting or canopying, these options will be available. Later in the afternoon we will drive to Vicente Perez Rosales National Park and visit the famous Petrohue Waterfalls, then spend the evening at the charming Teski Mountain Hut on the flanks of the Osorno Volcano.
Day 5: We complete our Southern Chile Volcano Experience with the ascent of the Osorno Volcano. The climb is not just physically demanding, but it also requires us to use glacier travel techniques to reach the summit. From the mountain hut we will need between 6-8 hours to reach the breathtaking views looking out over the entire expanse of Southern Chile. After the ascent we’ll reflect on the past 5 days over lunch at the mountain hut, then drive back to Puerto Varas.
