Description

There really isn’t anything quite like ski touring in Patagonia. And, during this incredible 11-day adventure, that is exactly what you will get to do, with a focus on the Cerro Castillo in Chile, in the Aysen Region.

Our adventure will begin after your arrival in the Balmaceda airport. From there we will go to the town of Coyhaique. After that, we will go to the Villa Cerro Castillo, where we will spend the night. On the following day, our first ski touring adventure will take place at the Portozuelo Ibanez. After that, and for the next 3 days, we will be ski touring on the gorgeous Cerro Castillo.

On the sixth day, we will venture to a new area: Puerto Guadal, where we will spend the night. For the following 3 days, we will be ski touring around the Santa Theresa Valley, which is full of great slopes and views.

On the tenth day of the trip we will return to Coyhaique, where we will enjoy a delicious barbecue and the day after that, we will transfer you to the Balmaceda Airport, where you can catch your flight home.

This trip is for experienced skiers, who can ski tour at a minimum intermediate level. You should also be in good physical condition.

Patagonia is an incredible place to ski tour. That is why I have no doubt you’ll love this trip. To join me, please send a request.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

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

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
