Volcan Calbuco may not be as stately as the Osorno Volcano but it is still a grand sight to see. We took a drive around Lago Llanquihue and got some great views of this volcano when we approached Villa Ensanada.

This is a fantastic place to visit if you enjoy the great outdoors. The views on a clear day were awesome.

we did not get that close to the volcano, but you can see it from everywhere. I am not sure how close you could get hiking. It is an active volcano after all

Very interesting view of the volcano but a little rough to visit it. Honestly I prefer volcano Osorno where you can go by car till the base and after you have different possibilities to climb

I know it was snowing, but I was surprise with the wind and cold up there. Almost all days the're a fog up there, so we didn't try the seat cables until the top. But the view until there is amazing =D

My husband and I arranged to climb this volcano with a local guide. While the guide was fantastic - I can't understate how difficult the climb was. We have "climbed" several (hiking / scrambling) mountains around the world and have also completed many multi-day treks,...More
