Create an itinerary including Lanín
Scale a volcano on the Chilean-Argentine border when you climb Lanín. The scenery includes the volcano's snow- and ice-capped summit. The base of the volcano has a park area with restrooms and tour companies. For those feeling up to the challenge, hike up to the camp at 3,000 m (9,842 ft). This trek traverses volcanic rock and is devoid of any plant life. The second day of the hike takes you to the summit at 3,776 m (12,388 ft). The stunning view from the summit offers a look into both countries and along the Andes. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Junin de los Andes holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Lanín and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Recommended to everyone, who enjoys hiking. There are many trails with different levels of difficulties and duration. Plan at least half a day to visit the park, but multiple day stay is worthwhile...

  • Great place to visit. There are three routes to get to the very top, two of which are from Argentina (the south and north faces) and one from Chile. The north face is the most common route to use, whether for a one-day ascent (to get to the refuge camp and to go back) or a two-day ascent to get to the very top. Whichever one you chose, you won’t get disappointed. The route is not too challenging, but it is nevertheless tiring. It is recommended to get a good pair of hiking boots and sticks (if you don’t have them). If you are staying overnight in the camp, you will need a torch and a sleeping bag. Don’t forget to register with the national park if you are doing the ascent without a guide/tour.
  • Easy hike from the highway to upper small lake in the Chilean sector. Beautiful half day hike on a sunny summer day. Great atmospherics if clouds are blowing over the summit .
