My family stayed behind as I climbed the mountain with Summit Chile they were very nice to work with me in the office, able to pick me up on the road. The guides spoke English and worked very hard to secure everyone's safety. I would use them again for sure.

From the minute we emailed Suzi at Summit Chile we were confident we had picked the right company. Not only were they offering the best value trip (that we could find) they were friendly, easy to book with and helpful, answering all our questions and providing extra information. We were lucky to reserve 48 hours in advance and went into... More

All the reviews will tell you about the Villarica Volcano. Its a bit of a slog, albeit quite enjoyable at times and hopefully after the treat of seeing the lava crater, after a short descent you get loads of fun by shooting down the ice on plastic paddles in courses which have been cut into the ice. although there are...

I highly recommend going with Summit Chile to the volcán Villarrica. Their service was great, from the initial contact over email to the actual tour. The owners are very friendly and makes sure you know what the trip is about and what is expected. They provide all the gear, you just have to come by the day before to try... More

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
