Description

Not as well known as its explosive sister volcano Villarrica, climbing Quetrupillán in winter is an incredible experience. A lush walk through the forest leads to panoramic views of the snow-capped volcano. Its flat summit allowes us to have an impressive 360° viewpoint with stunning postcard views of the smoking Villarrica and the gigant Lanín volcano. During summer, this ascent is a beautiful hike; when you arrive at its summit you will discover a huge glaciar inside its crater, and you can also see nice blue lagoons of melted ice. The Quetrupillan volcano stretches 2,370 meters above sea level. It's an activity of medium dificulty. 6:00am: We meet at our agency where we´ll give you all the mountain equipment you need for the activity. 6:30am: We leave Pucón and drive for 1h aprox., until the base of the volcano. 8am: Begining of the climb. 1pm/2pm: We should arrive to the summit at this time. It´s around 5h to 6h climbing, depending of the season. 2pm: We start to descent the volcano, in the winter we slide down with sledges, in the summer we walk down. 5pm: Back to the car, we´ll have a beer or juice before leaving ! (sometimes we´ll have it at the agency). 7pm: End of the activity. We recomand you to visit us the day before the hike, so you can try the shoes and equipment and we can answer any question.
