Good to Know

 

What’s the weather like?

Chile is a diverse country with subtropical, arid, Mediterranean, temperate and subpolar climates. Many guides offer ski touring and climbing trips from Chile’s Central Valley. Here the winters and summers have fairly mild temperatures, becoming increasingly dry the farther north you go. Many mountaineering trips are offered in the country’s north, which receives almost no rainfall each year and has hot summers and cold winters.

How long should I stay?

This depends on what you want to do. Most guides offer one to two day rock climbing trips around Santiago. Meanwhile, ski touring and mountaineering programs generally last for about one to two weeks, not including the time it takes to get to the start of the trip. Certain guides offer month-long expeditions that include a combination of activities.

Language:

Spanish

Country Code:

+56

Currency:

Chilean Peso. Foreign currencies are typically not accepted in Chile, except for some hotels.

Best time to visit:

For rock climbing and mountaineering, the best time of year to visit is the summer (December-February). There is also some downhill skiing then too. In the winter and spring most guides offer ski touring. Guides generally offer ice climbing trips in the spring as well.

 

 

More Info on Chile

This medium-sized South American country stretches for 4.300 kilometers along the southwestern coast. In many areas it is quite narrow, reaching 350 kilometers at its broadest point. Due to its extraordinary length, the country is composed of a diverse number of climate zones and landscapes. Chile is uniquely separated from the rest of the continent by the Andes Mountain chain to the east and the world’s driest desert – the Atacama – to the north. This isolation means both the culture and nature of the country is quite unique. Santiago is a cosmopolitan civic and cultural hub, while much of the rest of the country is sparsely populated. Along with its landscapes and wildlife, Chile is also renowned for its food and wine.

The trip was great!
Sebastian’s colleague Ignacio catered it exactly as I have envisioned the trip to be according to my skills and background experience.
He was patient and helpful when I struggled in certain moments and he taught me a lot of important safety details on various aspects of the activity, which was what I expected.
Overall, a fantastic three days and will definitely return if I have time next year!

Are you up for a rewarding adventure – go for the Lascar Volcano. Our very experienced guide Christian Fernandez made sure everything was in place for a great experience, from safe driving to making breakfast to setting a good pace for reaching the top without being too affected by the altitude. Stunning views and a great sense of accomplishment, our thanks to Christian and explore-share.com for a truly memorable hike. Best regards, Erik (37) and Christopher (30), Norway
