Full description
Meet at the local partner's office in downtown Pucon and travel to the Palguin area to the east of the city. Start the hike and cross the forest full of native Coihue trees, some of which reach more than 20 meters high. Discover the various birds of the area as you hike along a leisurely trail. Learn about the native inhabitants and culture of the region from your experienced guides. After you exit the forest, make your way into the rugged Andean mountain landscape. As the height increases, hike along steeper slopes which will bring you closer to the summit. When you reach the crater at the top, after climbing over 1,000 meters, walk westward along the ridge to reach the summit at a height of 2,347 meters. Enjoy fantastic views of the Villarrica and Lanin volcanoes, along with more than three other volcanoes in the area. Admire the many lagoons, Argentinean pampas, and green forests of this panoramic viewpoint. Enjoy an easy descent, where you will walk once more through green forests, and arrive at your vehicle which will take you back to Pucon.

Amazing experience of the Vulcán Quetrupillan, learning about the indigenous culture and the history of that region! It was a great mix between a hike through the forrest and the mountain, especially during autumn, where the trees were so colorful. Due to the small group size we could follow our own tempo and enjoy some breaks along the way eith some meditations. Can only recommend this tour! Thanks again Augustin!
