Bariloche is known for  its incredible landscapes with valleys, mountain lakes, and snow-covered peaks. Come and discover it on this splitboarding adventure that will take us from the Frey hut area to the Jakob lake in the Andes.

Our trip will begin in Bariloche. This city belongs to the Rio Negro province, in the Argentinian Patagonia. It is a very popular destination in the country and a great place to practice and enjoy snow activities.

We’ll start this 5-day program by going to the Cerro Catedral ski resort and taking the lift to the Frey mountain hut, where we’ll spend the night. Then, we’ll spend the next day splitboarding in this wonderful area.

Afterwards, we’ll explore the amazing natural environment of the Rucaco Valley. We’ll also have the opportunity to climb the Cerro Brecha Negra and reach the San Martin mountain hut. This hut is located at the edge of the Laguna Jakob, where we’ll spend the night.  The next day we’ll enjoy splitboarding in this area. Finally, on the last day of our trip, we’ll splitboard to the Jakob path before returning to Bariloche. 

You will need prior splitboarding or skiing experience to participate in this tour**.** Also, you will need a very good physical condition. Of course, I will be there to help and guide you on the way.

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.
