My husband and I arranged to climb this volcano with a local guide. While the guide was fantastic - I can't understate how difficult the climb was. We have "climbed" several (hiking / scrambling) mountains around the world and have also completed many multi-day treks,...More

Volcanoes so often look to be placid friendly mountains, like dogs snoozing by the fire. Then one erupts with fire, fury, noise, ash and all the rest of the adventure. Want to be reminded that Nature is really in charge after all? Well, an erupting...More

Volcan Calbuco may not be as stately as the Osorno Volcano but it is still a grand sight to see. We took a drive around Lago Llanquihue and got some great views of this volcano when we approached Villa Ensanada.

This is a fantastic place to visit if you enjoy the great outdoors. The views on a clear day were awesome.

we did not get that close to the volcano, but you can see it from everywhere. I am not sure how close you could get hiking. It is an active volcano after all

Majestic and surreal. We cycled up to a mid-point on Volcan Calbuco. There is a lot of ash so made it a little more challenging, but that was 1/2 the fun of it. Stopped in Ensenada on our way home and picked up a few...More

This place is unbelievable, Once you have made it through the winding roads to the top, you are greeted with great views for miles. Well worth walking up to where the snow starts if you have the legs and attitude for it.

Very interesting view of the volcano but a little rough to visit it. Honestly I prefer volcano Osorno where you can go by car till the base and after you have different possibilities to climb
