Chile occupies a long and narrow strip of land, between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes. It borders Argentina to the east, Peru to the north, Bolivia to the northeast and the Drake Passage in the south. Due to its length, the country boasts many diverse landscapes, climates and an amazing wildlife. Santiago, the capital, is a cosmopolitan and vibrant city, while much of the territory in the rest of the country is sparsely populated. The Atacama, the world’s driest desert, is located in the north of the country. Chile is also renowned for its exceptional wines.
Chile has a wide variety of climates: cold in the Andes, Mediterranean in the centre, desert but mild in the north, and oceanic in the south.The country stretches for about 4300 kilometres long from north to south, between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes.In the Central Valley, winters and summers have fairly mild temperatures. Southern Chile is cold in winter.

Most guides offer backcountry skiing trips from June to October, although the best time would be July to September.
The trip was really successful. I got an excellent guide Pablo, I am sorry that didn’t know his surname. Pablo is very professional and responsible guide. He knows an area perfectly, very attentive and caring in relation to client. Thanks to him I did evan more than really could. I learnt with him a new ski techniques and my ski level really rose.
Patagonian mountains is a place of strongest beauty and I think that to spend there even a few days is a rare success. I surely recommend Andescross company and guide Pablo for turing skiing in Patagonia.
Just coming back from one of the most spectacular things I have ever experienced, a seven day ski touring trip to Chilean volcanoes Llaima, Villarrica and Osorno under the guidance of Merlin Lipshitz. Excellent weather conditions, the unique beauty of Nature, a perfect organization considering every detail and the excellent guidance of Merlin made these days unforgettable ! Thanks, Merlin, for your enthusiasm and your open heart!
I spent three days on the glaciers above Chamonix with Jeremias at the beginning of July 2015, preparing for a three week tour with him to Patagonia. I cannot recommend Jeremias’ guiding highly enough. He is highly expert in everything concerning the mountains and was truly excellent company throughout. I cannot wait to go again!
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
