Enjoy ski touring in 4 different Patagonian volcanos on this exhilarating 10-day program in Argentina and Chile.
Our meeting point will be in Bariloche, a beautiful city located in the Argentinean province of Río Negro. First of all, we’ll have an introduction and get ready for our ski touring adventure.
The volcanoes included in this program belong to the Andes and are located in the border area between Chile and Argentina. Our first goal will be Tronador, a stratovolcano at an altitude of 3,554 meters. Our next stop will be Osorno that reaches 2,652 meters above sea level. Then, we’ll go to Villarrica Volcano (2,847 meters) and, lastly, we’ll reach the Lanin Volcano (3,776 meters). This last peak is the highest of the four and will allow us to enjoy a descent of 2,500 meters. Please take a look at the bottom of the page for a more detailed description of the itinerary.
This experience offers you the chance to improve your abilities and enjoy fantastic descents. In addition, you will get to see astonishing landscapes, learn about the Argentinian and Chilean culture, enjoy delicious food and relax at the hot springs.
Also, keep in mind that prior ski touring experience and a very good level of fitness is mandatory for this trip. Of course, I will be there to help and guide you.

Mountain huts and hotels
I´m based in Bariloche, Patagonia, where I guide full time, mostly technical custom trips with small groups.
I started guiding in 1998, and my job took me all around the globe. In Montana, USA, where I lived for many years I worked extensively in the Rockies, guiding in the Tetons, Wind Rivers, and the Beartooths. Back to Argentina, I spend most of my time ski guiding volcanoes, rock climbing at Frey and mountaineering in Chalten and Tronador.
The rest of time I work as a Technical director at the AAGM, forming new guides, and trying to be an exciting dad for my two kids, taking advantage of the great backyard we have at home!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
