we did not get that close to the volcano, but you can see it from everywhere. I am not sure how close you could get hiking. It is an active volcano after all

Majestic and surreal. We cycled up to a mid-point on Volcan Calbuco. There is a lot of ash so made it a little more challenging, but that was 1/2 the fun of it. Stopped in Ensenada on our way home and picked up a few...More

This place is unbelievable, Once you have made it through the winding roads to the top, you are greeted with great views for miles. Well worth walking up to where the snow starts if you have the legs and attitude for it.

Very interesting view of the volcano but a little rough to visit it. Honestly I prefer volcano Osorno where you can go by car till the base and after you have different possibilities to climb

My husband and I arranged to climb this volcano with a local guide. While the guide was fantastic - I can't understate how difficult the climb was. We have "climbed" several (hiking / scrambling) mountains around the world and have also completed many multi-day treks,...More

This volcano no longer has a glacial top because it blew in the summer of 2015. Like toddlers, they look so peaceful when they're sleeping! Google Calbuco 2015 eruption for the the REAL character of these magnificient volcanoes.
