The region of Patagonia has a wide variety of ski touring options for all levels of skiers.

This time, I would like to invite you to a enjoy a classic ski tour in Patagonia but in a different way. As a local guide, I’ll take you through uncrowded corners and wild landscapes. Furthermore, you will ski on places you have never imagined!

During this week we will also ski in two of the most important ski areas in the Patagonia region. On the one hand, I will guide you through the gentle slopes of Cerro Lopez and Cerro Inacayal, on the Argentinian side. On the other hand, we will ski around the Cerro Mirador ski resort as well as the Casablanca Volcano, in Chile.

This amazing cross-country expedition starts in the city of Bariloche, where we’ll head to the Catedral ski area. From there, we’ll spend 7 unforgettable days skinning up and skiing down through the most outstanding spots of the Patagonia.

Price details

For the moment the border crossing between Argentina and Chile is not possible, so the price listed is for an itinerary on the Argentine side.


Day 1: Introductory meeting and gear check

We will previously arrange a meeting point in the town of Bariloche where we must be at 4 pm to discuss the itinerary and check the gear.

Day 2: Catedral ski area - La Lagunita

Meeting at 8:30 am to head out to the Catedral ski center and get our lift tickets. We’ll spend the morning there seeking out the best lines that only the locals know. We’ll decide whether to go off-piste depending on the snow and weather conditions. Lunch and in the afternoon we’ll skin out of bounds to the “La Lagunita” area.

Day 3: Cerro Lopez or Cerro Chalhuaco

At 8 am we’ll decide where to spend the day depending on the conditions. We’ll get away from the crowds and use our skins to find untracked turns. We’ll review skinning techniques with skis or splitboard as well as some other skills. Return to Bariloche at around 4 pm.

Day 4: Bayo ski area – Cerro Inacayal

Meeting up at 7 am and then we’ll drive to Villa La Angostura. We’ll take the lifts at Bayo ski area to gain elevation, take some runs and attempt Cerro Inacayal. These are some of the best views while we look for fresh and pristine snow. Overnight in Villa La Angostura

Day 5: Border crossing and rest day in Entre Lagos, Chile

We’ll leave early to cross the border and make the most of our trip to Chile! We’ll spend a rest day at a cabin in the small town of Entre Lagos, dry out gear and get everything ready for our next objective: our first Chilean volcano.

Day 6: Casablanca Volcano

Starting at the base of a small ski area (without taking the lifts) we’ll skin approximately 5-6 hours to reach the summit of Casablanca. Today is a day to enjoy what we’ve learned and ski our first volcano. If weather (and schedule) allows, we’ll find other spots of the volcano to ski. Overnight in Entre Lagos.

Day 7: Return to Argentina and Cerro Mirador

If our legs are willing, on the way back we can take a ski on Cerro Mirador, just on the border between Chile and Argentina. The round trip will take 4 hours approximately. Return to Bariloche, dinner and end of such a fascinating program.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
