I live in Pucon and we regularly have people visit to climb the volcano. I always send them to Summit Chile and they always come back pleased. I myself have climbed with Summit twice and can attest to the quality. I have heard SO MANY horror stories from other agencies-- faulty equipment, bad guides, disorganized, etc. Suzi and Claudio run... More

Although Villarrica was closed the morning we were booked to hike up, Susi ,one of the owners, was extremely friendly, helpful, knowledgeable about the area and what to do. I would highly recommend going with Summit Chile if you are planning to climb Villarrica. Other friends chose this company and they were not disappointed with this tour company.

Use Summit Chile as your go to volcano guides in Pucon, they are not on the Main Street but I highly recommend going with them. We had an epic day with Claudio as our leader and all the other guides were fantastic! Susie was so helpful in the office and getting the trip planned. They were so knowledgable, helpful, and...

We researched and read many reviews of various tour companies before deciding to check out Summit Chile for our volcan Villarica climb. We were aware of the potential dangers of this kind of trek and wanted a tour group with the highest of safety standards. From our first moment when we visited their shop we felt comfortable with the approach... More

Summit Chile was recommended by our Hostal host as one of the 3 reputable companies to do the volcano trek in Pucon. we checked out Summitt Chile first and we were immediately impressed with the professional attitude, enthusiasm and equipment, that we booked there and then for a vulcano trek later in the week. Summitt Chile is operated by Husband... More

We have lived half-time in Pucon for a number of years and see the up-close view of Volcan Villarrica from our front door. We have sent lots of renters of our vacation homes to Summit Chile, all with great feedback. Our recent Finnish guests were so inspiring that we decided it was now or never for us (I am nearly...

We came across Summit Chile while in Pucon while looking for guides to summit the Volcano. Upon entering the store which is not on the Main Street so not one you would jut stumble upon walking down O'Higgins, we were greeted by Suzi (owner). She was not only incredibly helpful with info on the Volcano trek but also on places... More

My partner and I have climbed Volcan Villarrica about 5 times between the two of us and with 3 different companies, and this was by far the best experience we have had. We regularly visit the area with large groups of exchange students so we are always on the look out for the best guiding service for our groups, and... More

I traveled for a week and toured Chile's Volcanos with Summit Chile's guide Claudio. When mountaineering, safety cannot be stressed enough, especially in Chile, where state authorities and volunteer rescue are not anything like the USA. If you are not properly equipped, or are led into a dangerous situation, no one is coming to save you on ATVs, snowmobiles and... More

We did the Villarica Volcano trek with Claudio in December 2013. The experience could not have been better. Claudio is one of the best (or maybe the best) guide for the Volcano. I was a bit concerned about managing the ascent as it gets pretty steep and tiring towards the top but we trekked slowly, with stops for water, and... More
