Description

Experience the incredible adventure of heliskiing on the Andes in this amazing 3-day trip in Maipo Valley, Chile. With incredible powder snow and huge glaciers, this place is ideal for winter-sport lovers. Join me on this exciting opportunity!

We’ll meet at Santiago de Chile and move to the beautiful El Morado Lodge. These three days will be filled with adventures! We’ll enjoy 9 hours of flying time and discover the best powder terrain Chile has to offer. At the same time, we’ll get to savour the amazing Andes landscape.

For this trip, we’ll be staying at the luxurious El Morado Lodge & Spa. This cozy hotel in the heart of the Chilean Andes offers beautiful rooms and the perfect relaxing environment after an exciting day at the slopes. Besides, it is the closest lodge to the best terrain, reducing flying time and maximizing skiing time. I am also happy to report that it is energy efficient with 100% solar energy.

This trip is recommended for intermediate skiers, but I can also help you find easier terrains to match your skills, if necessary. My goal is to provide you with an unforgettable experience.

If you are ready for it, send your request! I would love to be your guide.

I also offer a longer trip with the same amenities. Check it out here.

From the start Aventuras Patagonicas was welcoming, which set the trip up on the right foot. The guides, Wes, Lucia and Sebastian were all excellent and worked very hard to get the group of climbers safely up and down the mountain. The food was excellent and well organized. The gear provided on the mountain (tents) were also of good quality. I would climb again with Patagonicas.

Great guides, great equipment, amazed about how good food was. All round a very experienced and top end operator who know what they are doing and will maximise your chances of getting to the summit. Reaching top Aconcagua was one of greatest highlights of my life thank you Aventuras Patagonicas.

I did a 20 day climb of Aconcagua with this company. The guides were excellent and made the trip as enjoyable as possible. We had hot meals every evening and morning. Aconcagua is a hard mountain and it takes a great deal of effort to reach the top. The guides at Patagonicas are committed to each client's safety on the mountain. I would recommend them over any other company on the mountain.
