Osorno Volcano Chile

Ski The Slopes Of The Andes Most Active Volcano

This towering peak sits in the Los Lagos region of Chile, located roughly in the middle of the country. The last eruption here was 1869, making it one of the most active volcanoes in The Andes.  Orsorno is 2,652 metres tall, paling in comparison to Ojos del Salado, the tallest Volcano in the Andes range which sits at 6887 metres. 
 
Despite its relatively low elevation, Orsorno is clad in glaciers at higher altitudes, meaning the snow capped peak looming over Todos Los Santos Lake is reminiscent of Mount Fuji in Japan (also a snow-capped Volcano sitting next to a lake). Orsono is equally beautiful whether it’s viewed from ground-level, or for the more adventurous, from its peak; tours of the Volcano set of at 5am.

Keen skiers can even take to the slopes here in the winter season (June until September), it may not be one of the world’s most renowned ski resorts, but there are three lifts as well as Ski Schools, shops, restaurants and a variety of runs to suit all abilities
