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

I can't say enough about the great team at Summit Chile, the trekking group I went with on a hike up Villarica Volcano a few days ago. A few great things in particular about Summit Chile: 1. They were very easy to work with -- the information they provided was very clear, and they lived up to everything they indicated.... More

I was impressed with Summit Chile's quality and professionalism every step of the way - on the "hardware" side - their equipment is top notch, and it shows - while climbing the Villarica volcano our group was better equipped and was therefore able to move faster than most others. Our gear didn't leak and didn't smell. As soon as we... More

Thanks to Claudio and his great team the climb to Villarica Volcano was exciting and beaufitul experience! We realised how much we are able to achieve. The climb is difficult. Even if you are in a good shape. But with the motivation and personal approach from Claudio and the team we managed to go all the way up without any... More

I wandered into Summit Chile one afternoon and ended up chatting with the incredibly kind owners, Susie and Claudio, for an hour. They recommended a range of activities for me to try in Pucon, including many not offered by their company. Claudio even walked with me down the street to Freeride Pucon to help me arrange a mountain biking trip... More

A little disappointed !! because when we arrived in Pucon we held 2 places with this company for the next trip up the valcano and we where told no problem they would hold us places for the next time weather permitting. They didn't tell us that if the weather changes you get bumped off because they have to accommodate the... More

We used Summit Chile for our climb of Volcan Villarica and also for our booking to go to Termas Geometricas (hot springs). Claudio was an absolutely awesome guide for the volcano. He gave us a bunch of interesting information about the geology and about previous eruptions. He definitely knew his stuff when it came to the mountain and he provided... More

Spent an afternoon climbing with Claudio, who truly is a master of his profession. His expert guidance and tuition made the afternoon a very memorable experience. Claudio created the routes in Pucon and it was a delight to climb with him. Susie was also great and provided us many useful hints and tips throughout our stay.

My boyfriend and I chose to go with Summit Chile for the villarrica climb. I had read about Claudio - a world champion climber who now takes groups up villarrica. He was knowledgeable and friendly - a great guide if you're feeling nervous. This company offered a range of other exciting trips around the area.

I went rock climbing with Claudio and it was really a great experience. He is a former Chilean cimbing champion and you can see that he knows what he is doing by the way he moves. Security is always his top priority and I felt safe at all times. Had great fun with the routes that were (partly?) set by... More
