Description

For 8 thrilling days, I would like to guide you on an unforgettable ski mountaineering adventure in the volcanoes of Chile.

Along with the great volcanoes you will get to visit during this trip, you will also get to visit a number of other great places as well. You will get to visit several wonderful towns, including Pucon, Puerto Montt, Ensenada and Curacautin. You will also get to spend some time skiing at the lovely Corralco ski resort. And finally, throughout this trip, we will visit several soothing and beautiful hot springs. Those springs include the Geometricas, Mellancahuello and the Manzanar hot spring. Hence giving you a great opportunity to relax and let your body recuperate from a long day of ski mountaineering.

With your days filled with adventure and fun, you can rest assured that your nights will be just as rewarding as you relax in a comfortable lodge. Furthermore, throughout this trip you will also get to enjoy delicious local food, including some delectable asado.

In order to participate on this trip, you should be in good physical condition and have some prior ski mountaineering experience.

About the guide

I´m based in Bariloche, Patagonia, where I guide full time, mostly technical custom trips with small groups.

I started guiding in 1998, and my job took me all around the globe. In Montana, USA, where I lived for many years I worked extensively in the Rockies, guiding in the Tetons, Wind Rivers, and the Beartooths. Back to Argentina, I spend most of my time ski guiding volcanoes, rock climbing at Frey and mountaineering in Chalten and Tronador.

The rest of time I work as a Technical director at the AAGM, forming new guides, and trying to be an exciting dad for my two kids, taking advantage of the great backyard we have at home!

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
