- During the night you’ll walk on the hillsides of a volcano using crampons. It is undoubtedly a challenging and different experience.
- A sky full of stars will be the witness of your night progression towards the summit, until the sun gives you an image that will stay printed in your memory forever.
- From the summit you will be able to observe a great part of the north Patagonian mountain range, with more than five volcanoes on the horizon.
- If you look south, you’ll get to see Huechulafquen, Paimún and Epulafquen lakes.
The Lanín Volcano is one of the mountains that when you see it, you want to climb it. From the base it seems more complicated than it is, since the 2700m slope looks clearly long, but once on the way, the views and spending a night halfway up make all your doubts disappear. Trying to climb this volcano is undoubtedly an experience that will stick to the memory of all the ones who dare to do so.
