Osorno Volcano Climbing

by dantarta Online Now Feb 12, 2006 at 4:51 PM

We planned to go to 1 day trip to summit of Osorno volcano in April, but all Internet sites show that it is very expensive (150-200$ pp) and also possible in groups of 3 people only. We are 4 people.
Any ideas about operators who does it cheaper and allows larger groups?
Also, on the same night I will need to leave to Pucon. What is the best way to get there?

Thanks,
Dan

    The price seems fair, I have seen much higher prices. This is not an easy mountain to climb. The last bit is quite technical requiring ropes and crampons and so on. The minimumper guide is usually two people and the maximum three for safety reasons. If you want to climb an easier and cheaper volcano, try Villarica in Pucon.

    You could get a bus from Puerto Varas to Pucon. Go to turbus.cl and check the times and dates.
