Know More about this tour

Your day trip to Cerro Colorado volcano begins with a convenient pickup at your San Martin de los Andes hotel. Get to know your informative local guide, who is part of the trusted AAGM (Asociacin Argentina de Guas de Montaa). The scenic drive to the volcano takes approx. 40 minutes, and its towering presence can be seen from many surrounding vantage points.

When you arrive at the base, prepare for a 3-hour climb up the statuesque volcano, which reaches 5,833 feet above sea level. Crossing a small, tranquil stream signifies your entrance to a lush forest, comprised of beech trees that rise to 98 feet high (30 meters). Your well-marked path then leads into a picturesque canyon that ascends up the side of the volcano.
As you make your way up the mountain, your guide enlightens you about the local vegetation and the unique geology, which reveals how this region was formed thousands of years ago as well as how it continues to change at present day. Check out the texture of the volcanic rocks, which change in size and texture as you zero in on the summit, and search for telltale clues about the volcano through time.

As you gain higher elevation, the trees and plants shrink in size and become sparse, revealing a magnificent view that extends throughout the entire Lcar basin. Once at the top, youre rewarded with unforgettable 360-degree views of Lago Lcar (Lake Lcar), the Chapelco mountain range, Cerro Abanico and more.
Enjoy some time to soak it all in, then prepare for the 2-hour descent down the mountain, where youll be driven back to your San Martin de los Andes hotel.
