Me and my family went to Volcan Villarica by Sky station. Was an amazing experience to be so close of the most active volcan in Americas. You will have snow, sun, wind and great view in the same place.

This review is probably a bit unfair as we did not see the volcano at its best. On the second of two wet November days in Pucon we thought we ought to at least drive up the volcano. The drive took about 30 mins on...More

Yes on a day of good weather. The climb is do able and not hard. Of course people should bds relatively fit. The extent of climb can also be reduced from 5 hours to 4 hours if you pay extra for the chair lift.
