Get ready for a one-of-a-kind panoramic hiking experience, where you’ll be enchanted by some of the most breathtaking panoramic views of Patagonia, including one of the ten most beautiful views in the world as rated by National Geographic!

Our expert hiking guide will help you hone your hiking skills as you explore the surrounding areas of Mount Llao Llao. You’ll also take a chairlift ride up Campanario Hill, where you’ll enjoy awe-inspiring panoramic views of deep-blue lakes and snowcapped mountains. Get your camera ready…this will surely be one of the best opportunities to take some of the nicest landscape photos in a lifetime!

The tour starts early in the morning when our expert hiking guide takes us to Mount Llao Llao. We’ll hike along an off-the-beaten-path trail that will take us to the best lookout points of the mountain, where you’ll have the opportunity to capture some beautiful nature shots. This is a 3.7 mile (6 kilometers) hike which, depending on the pace, lasts approximately two hours. We’ll trek through some beautiful forests of southern beeches and native bamboos, offering plenty of color and diverse plant life while we explore. The hike up Mount Llao Llao takes us up to an elevation of 820 feet (250 meters), allowing for some excellent panoramic views once our ascent is done.

Next we’ll head for Campanario Hill. Along the way, we’ll do a few stops for enjoying panoramic views, including the picturesque sight of the Llao Llao Peninsula. Now it’s time for a relaxing and scenic ride in a chairlift up Campanario Hill. Once you reach the top of the hill, you’ll be rewarded with a 360 degree view of the area while being treated to magnificent, long range panoramic vistas of majestic snow-capped peaks, pristine lakes, and plentiful forests. These views are so impressive that they’ve even garnered accolades from National Geographic as one of the 10 best panoramic views in the world!

After spending time atop Campanario Hill capturing plenty of pictures and taking in the serene beauty of your surroundings, it’s then time take the chairlift back down and return to your hotel.

Since you’ll be doing this tour with your own private vehicle and guide, you’ll be able to enjoy each attraction at your own pace; making all of the stops you want while enjoying personalized assistance and care from your expert guide. You’ll also enjoy more convenient and faster transfers from and to your hotel, as there will be no other travelers to pick up or drop off at other hotels.

Important: the tour’s exact itinerary and duration may change subject to weather conditions and decisions of the tour guide to optimize your tour experience.

Difficulty: Easy to moderate (depending on the hiking trail we follow). Our usual 2 hour hike is of moderate difficulty and has an uphill section for around 30 minutes. The total hiking distance is 3.7 miles (6 kilometers) with a cumulative elevation gain (refers to the sum of every gain in elevation throughout the entire trek) of 820 feet (250 meters).
For guests preferring a harder trail, our hiking guide will take you on a 2 hour hike at Cerro Lopez, which will replace our usual Llao Llao mount hike. For guests preferring an easier hike, we follow another trail that offers an easy 1 hour walk through an imposing forest in the same area. This easier path involves short and mellow uphill sections and mostly flat terrain. This option will show us a group of unique Myrtle trees and beautiful lookouts by the Moreno Lake. Our tour guide will customize the tour to provide you the most suitable and enjoyable hiking experience.
