We did this hike on new years eve, after several days of altitude acclimatisation. be aware that the volcano ridge is at 5600 above sea level, so choose a responsible company for your trek. We spent about 4,5 hours on this return trip, due to the altitude, we had to walk very slow to the summit.

We went in the beginning of november with Vulcano Expediciones our guide Carlos was very good. The trip is hard if you are not adjusted to the altitude, so try to do other things in the area before going here, like the geysers or Salar the Uyuni. The top is worth it so go for it, it is very beautiful!... More

I took a tour with Atacama Mistica. We were group of only 3 and there were only one other group climbing up on that day so it was really nice and quiet. So it was almost as a private tour with Gustavo. The trip started early in the morning and after two hours driving we were at Lagon Lejia where... More

David, our guide took some advantage of our fatigue and when he dropped us at our hotel. We forgot an iphone in the car with all our honeymoon pictures. We called him later and he said there was never a phone in the car. That We lost it in the city. At that time it was a possibility. But when... More

We went with Atacama Mistica to trek up the Lascar Volcano. Though pricey, luckily we were the only two on the tour so we ended up having a private tour with Gustavo. He literally thought of everything. We are by no means experience mountaineers and thank goodness we had Gustavo to guide us. He gave us thermal pants to borrow,... More

We booked with Ivero travels, and was three on the tour with a very experienced guide. After breakfast at the lake we drove up to ca 4800m. I got sick from eating the snack, but managed well after getting it up again. Amazing views when walking up (if you manage to see around...), amazing to get to the rim of... More

I went with some locals, and one of them hired a driver. If you find others and can do the same, the trip will be pretty cheap. The six of us paid 35k each. The trail is seriously easy to follow, you can´t get lost. BUT, the driver needs to know where to go. Took us about 3.5 hours going... More

We booked our entire trip with Ivero travels, who were absolutely excellent and very competitively priced! Luckily, it was just my boyfriend and I on the tour (I think two more people were supposed to come but canceled). The tour starts off with breakfast around the lagoon lejia, which might be one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen.... More
