Reviews of Volcán Lanín

An extinct Patagonian volcano, straddling Argentina and Chile, whose peak is fairly easy to access.

My suggestion:
If your Argentine journey includes Patagonia, you should go camping in Lanin Park, even if you don't want to embark on the climb to the volcano's summit: the place is really awesome.

Do you dream about beautiful landscapes, unique adventure and exceeding your physical limits and you aren't necessarily an experienced mountain climber? Welcome to Lanin Volcano! The idea: experience an 8530-foot ascent and descent in two days to reach the summit of this volcano, culminating at more than 12,139 feet above sea level. Needless to say, it's challenging!

I loved the trip, on the one hand for the views that are amazing, of course (deep blue sunken lakes and other volcanoes in the background); but certainly also because it was the first time that used an ice axe and crampons to climb a snow-covered terrain. What an adventure! It's also possible to complete the "trek" over 3 days, just to make the experience a little less physical, and it seems that you can even reach Chile directly from the volcano.
