Mountaineering and Climbing

Are you adventurous? Enjoy a challenge? Ready to put yourself to the test? Get your pulse racing with Chile’s multiple climbing opportunities. Infinite mountains, snowy peaks and even volcanic craters are among the challenges in store for you.

Take a deep breath and look up … at the world’s highest volcano in northern Chile. The Ojos del Salado, standing at 6,893 meters, provides an exciting challenge for experienced mountaineers who come from all over the world to test their skills.

And if the mountains of the Andes aren’t thrilling enough, how about an adrenaline-filled ascent of the Parinacota volcano; its perfect cone, coated in eternal snow is the ultimate adventure. Would you rather start with something simpler? In Santiago, the San Ramón range and urban hills like Manquehue are a great option for beginners.

Southern Chile’s high peaks and volcanoes are ideal for expert climbers. These demanding climbs call for crampons and extra vigilance; aim for the summit of the Villarrica volcano or scale the granite towers of the Torres del Paine – a truly unspoiled wilderness experience.
