Villarrica Volcanic Caves

Travel Type: Nature
Duration: 1 Day

  • Tour Description
Explore the Villarrica volcano’s ‘”underworld”: a stone witness to the various eruptions of this highly active volcano! The tunnels here were created about two million years ago, when the upper layer of the giant lava flow coming out of Villarrica volcano began to solidify on contact with cold air, while the lower layers of the lava flow continued. Today it is possible to penetrate up to 300m/984ft into the caves, and see the lava flow from the inside.
The excursion of around one hour is accompanied by an experienced tour guide. Afterwards, you continue to the Rucapillan ski centre in the Villarrica National park, for a stroll, and to enjoy the views from above ground.
