A show of orange colors and silhouettes projected or fleeting clouds and Patagonian winds, that will recharge us and push us up to the 2.000m, to meet the glacier and when the conditions are fine have a walk on it.In the other hand, when the weather forecast shows snow and rain, the trekking changes it goal from enjoy the panoramic views of the Llanquihue lake and majesty of the volcano to experience a mountain trekking in adverse conditions. To feel the wind and push our own limits, knowing that we will have a couple of places to protect us and rest, and a cosy refugio where to be back, take out our wet clothes and enjoy a warm drink. To experience our way more than the point that we want to reach!
