Volcanoes so often look to be placid friendly mountains, like dogs snoozing by the fire. Then one erupts with fire, fury, noise, ash and all the rest of the adventure. Want to be reminded that Nature is really in charge after all? Well, an erupting...More

Volcan Calbuco may not be as stately as the Osorno Volcano but it is still a grand sight to see. We took a drive around Lago Llanquihue and got some great views of this volcano when we approached Villa Ensanada.

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
