Lascar, San Pedro de Atacama

Set foot on Lascar, the northern Chilean Andes' most active volcano. Tackling the volcano with a guide is a must, because of the high altitude and the eruptive history of the site. Despite the path's gentle incline, guides set an easy pace as to protect against the effects of the high altitude, which can be draining on a long hike. See sweeping views from the summit, with the otherworldly salt lakes below appearing like mirrors among the dusty, volcanic landscape. You can't acess the volcano during periods of increased seismic activity, so check with reliable local sources before booking your tour. By using our San Pedro de Atacama trip itinerary maker app , you can arrange your visit to Lascar and other attractions in San Pedro de Atacama.

  • It is the tour that I most recommend on the outskirts of San Pedro de Atacama. I hired the tour with Renata from Atacama Trips. The service and price of it were excellent, always responding quickly in WhatsApp, and worrying a lot with customers. In the case of the Lascar volcano, Atacama Trips has partnered with the agency Licancabur Expediciones, a great agency with excellent professionals, especially the guides Pablo and Gerardo, who accompanied us in the ascent of the volcano. They both cared enough about the group, with all the support needed for the adventure.
