The guided ascent to the summit of the Osorno Volcano does not require any previous mountaineering or climbing experience, but a good physical condition for an activity of more than eight hours in alpine terrain.

The ascent requires the use of mountaineering and climbing techniques and equipment. It is a glacier route with a steep slope at the top, so it is necessary to use of a helmet, crampons, ice axe and glacier travel techniques. However, the characteristics of the route and the ascent with a ratio of 1 guide for up to 2 clients allows us to introduce the equipment and how to use it, to make a good supervision of the progress with the equipment and, above all, to adapt the pace of the ascent to make a climb not only safe but also enjoyable!
