Volcan Calbuco, Puerto Varas

4.6
#6 of 10 in Parks in Puerto Varas
Climb the area around a recently erupted volcano at Volcan Calbuco. The attraction erupted in April 2015, covering the surrounding countryside in volcanic ash. By August of the same year, officials reported the volcano alert levels of this site had returned to normal, and tourism opened to the area again. Although you cannot climb to the summit, you can explore the base to observe the snow-capped top of the mountain. You can take the cable car to ride up part of the mountain and hike from there to view lush flora; then head to the nearby lake for a swim after descending the volcano.

  • Beautiful place, but after the eruption the place was practically desolate. There are no trails to visit, closed road and it seems dangerous to venture

  • It is part of the triology of volcanoes (Osorno, Cabulco and Pontiagudo) near Puerto Varas and which feed the Great lake. It is the smallest and lowest, but the most active, having given a sign of life in 2015, while the other two have been dormant for about 150 years. Visivel of the city on clear days, with its eternal snows at the top. Nice to see you.
