    Join me for an incredible opportunity heliskiing the impressive Chilean Andes. On this 6-day trip in Maipo Valley, we’ll discover Chile’s best powder snow and relax at the cozy El Morado Lodge & Spa. Come with me for this exciting adventure.

    Located in the heart of the Chilean Andes, the Maipo Valley is known for offering Chile’s best powder snow and beautiful views during the rides. Huge glaciers surround the area and many places have not been riden yet! We’ll spend 13 hours flying through this beauty!

    In order to enjoy the place even more, we’ll be staying at the gorgeous El Morado Lodge & Spa. With cozy rooms, exquisite cuisine and impressive views, this place is the best place to stay for this adventure. It is even the closest hotel to the best terrain, increasing skiing time! It is also completely energy efficient with 100% solar energy.

    I can’t wait to take you to this incredible spot. If you are ready to experience Chile’s best, send your request. The mountains are waiting for you!

    What People are Saying about Rodrigo Mujica

     

    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.
