We were supposed to be attempting Osorno but the park closed the summit before our arrival so we climbed Calbuco instead. It was a fun challenge and Jose was the perfect guide and we enjoyed his company. Although the first part of the climb is not dangerous, it is physically taxing as you are trekking on scree and every step up slides about a half step back. Luckily, there had been some snow the day before our climb so closer to the summit it was easier to climb at that angle. It definitely got my heart rate up a little in certain parts where you are climbing over boulders with a steep drop to either side and the final rock climb to the summit. The summit was truly breathtaking and we had a great view of the recent crater created by the 2015 eruption. I would highly recommend Jose or anyone on his team if you are looking for an adventure with a highly skilled guide.

We took the guided tour to the Calbuco Vulcano as the Osorno summit was closed.

Calbuco exceed all expectations.

We made it to the Crater at the top. The landscaping is breathtaking with the Osorno and Tronador as backdrop. The trekking offers diverse and fun terrains.

The guide Jose made of it a great experience. He is experienced and took care of everything.

There weren't other people apart from us in the whole way.

We recommend Jose and Huella Andina as trustworthy and reliable partner for your adventures!

Excellent climb, Jose and Falco are really friendly experienced guides! Had so much fun with them and the other people in our group, defiantly the highlight of my trip. The climb is a good level and even though one of the people in our group had almost no experience with this sort of expedition we always felt safe even on the steeper ice bits and went at a pace which suited the group full hike took us around 11 hours. Would definitely recommend using them if your looking to climb Orsorno

Perfect adventure!

Jose and Falco are very patient, experienced guides - even when the weather got very bad during descent, they got us down safely.
The climb was difficult - but doable also for people with no previous experience.

Sandra and Jose are very nice and pleasant people who helped us also with other things.

We definitely recommend this company!!!
