Absolutely fabulous ascent of Villarica on last good day of 2016. The lava lake did not disappoint, and we loved whizzing down the ice sheet on our "nappies". Delighted to have bumped into SummitChile, who were excellent from start to finish. Thank you Suzi, Claudio, Alejandro and Nacho.

As a mountain fan I have seen a lot of mountains but this was the first time climbing a volcano. I have been guided by some great and experienced mountain guides when I lived in the Alpes. But must say that Claudio and his entire team rank among the best I have ever had. Professional, experienced, safety first, motivators, enthusiastic... More

My partner really was keen on hiking volcán villarrica but also suffers from vertigo so choosing a company based on safety and the quality of the guides was always going to be critical for us. Choosing summit Chile : not from any personal recommendations but from internet research absolutely paid of. Right from the initial conversations, confirming we would hike... More

Today I hiked the volcano with this amazing company with knowledgeable guides. It was also my first time seeing lava though you may not always be able to. The guides were very helpful and catered to everybody's needs in the group. They were cautious and fun to hike with!

Summit Chile is an awesome company with great guides! They look out for the well being of everybody in the group keeping things safe but still fun. The guides are knowledgeable of not just the volcano but all of Chile including the history of the natives. Before you even start the epic and rewarding ascent, the office makes sure you... More

Claudio is a world certified tour guide who was motivating, funny and made the (quit challenging) experience very enjoyable. The hike is one of a kind and was unforgettable. Suzi, the owner, is extremely professional and really cares about her clients. She took the time to help find other reliable tours as well. Definitely recommend this agency!!!

This company is an excellent choice for climbing the Villaricca volcano (they seemed to offer other tours as well, but can't comment on these). The price is in line with other companies, and the customer service is excellent from the Canadian owner. The communication beforehand was excellent, particularly if (as in our case) the weather was poor and we had... More

I looked at few guide firms for climbing Villarrica in Nov 2016 & I'm glad we chose this Summit Chile. Claudio ran a very effective guide team which made the group feel safe at all times. We had tricky icy conditions and his experience clearly stood out against some of the other guides on the mountain. To top it off... More

My experience with Suzi booking the tour was great. She was helpful and friendly and answered all our many questions. We turned up for the hike and had lots of equipment, we were the only group we saw that had crampons which were really great for the snowy icey climb at the top. The three guides were all great, they... More

I decided to go with Summit Chile after reading all about them in Lonely Planet and on here, and I wasn't disappointed one bit! 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
