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

    About the Guide

     
     

    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!
