First of all, Suzi and Claudio, the owners, are so welcoming and hospitable, and they really look after you. On the climb itself I followed Claudio for most of it and he had so many stories... More

We would like to thank Summit Chile for the most fantastic experience they provided us in climbing the volcano in Pucon. From beginning to end the service was utterly faultless and we felt in incredibly safe hands. We thoroughly recommend this company to anyone.

I am writing this review only on the company Summit Chile and not the activity that we did. We did the volcano tour which was a breathtaking experience. We regret not going with Norte Sur and out decision was based only on the excellent trip advisor reviews about a gentleman named Claudio who we did not get as a guide.... More

Climbing an active volcano- who knew! This was such a unique experience for the group of us (all over 50) and the team at summit Chile gave us the confidence to do this based on their knowledge and quality equipment. We were completely kitted out the night before and ended up using all our equipment except the gas masks (which... More

This agency provided the best outdoor excursion experience I have had in Chile largely because the guides love what they do. They are also on time, professional, safe, good-humored, but to me what makes this a great agency is that you can tell they guides love Pucón, the outdoors, the culture and they want to share that with you.

Me and my friend from Tahiti went rock climbing with Summit Chile and had a really good day. The rock climbing spot is "El Cerduo", that has all type of routes and is fun for begginers and more experiences climbers as well. Our guide Leo was really good explaining about pucon, the volcano and the rocks there... It was a... More

I can highly recommend chile summit. From explaning in the office to explaining about the gear etc everything was very thorough. There are three guides on a group.the guides are not running up the mountain. They give you time to enjoh the views. So when someone asked me at the hostal..was it hard? Well not really. It wasnt easy but... More

My husband and I booked with Summit Chile to guide us up Volcan Villarrica on February 22nd. We came by their office the day prior. Suzi had us try on our gear and had us fill out the necessary paperwork, sign our waivers, and pay our $80,000 CP each. She was very organized and knowledgable about the hike. She explained... More

We booked the volcan Villarrica tour with them (80 000 CHP). The day before we tried the shoes and the pants to check the size. Then we were given a box where we put all the material they gave to us : shoes, gaiters, pants, jackets, gloves, backpack, ice ax, etc. The day of departure we had to be at... More

Our group travel company books all tours at Pucon with this company. After my Vulcan Villarrica experience this is a very good choice and well deserved. I only read up on Vulcan hike shorty before I did it. So I was a bit surprised to read that it is not as easy as I expected. Carlos the main guy is... More
