Description

Looking for a real ski touring experience? Come with me on this 2-day ski touring trip on the Lanin Volcano and discover this iconic Mapuche mountain!

At 3,777 meters, the Lanin Volcano is one of the highest summits in Patagonia and is located on the border between Argentina and Chile. During this 2-day adventure, skiers will have the opportunity to discover its slopes while enjoying fantastic views of the Argentine Pampas and the beautiful Chilean forests and its unique lakes.

According to the participant’s wishes, our journey can start in Junín de los Andes, San Martin de los Andes or Bariloche. Early in the morning, we’ll drive to the north entrance of the volcano (1,146 m) and leave our car at the Lanín National Park’s entrance. Once we are all set, we’ll ascend to the BIM hut (2,315 m) where we’ll spend the night and get ready for our summit attack on the following day. For a more detailed description of the trip, take a look at the itinerary below!
