Description

Extensive and magical, exciting and challenging, you will never forget this eleven day splitboarding adventure amidst the volcanoes of Patagonia.

During this incredible adventure, you will see a great deal of what makes Patagonia so special. From its assortment of volcanoes and towns, to its people and food, don’t be surprised if you immediately want to return after you have left.

The trip will begin with a day and night in the beautiful city of Bariloche in Argentina. There, we will perform an equipment check and introductions. On the following day, we will cross the border into Chile and go to Puyehue. From this point we will be visiting several beautiful volcanoes over the next few days, while staying in different refuges and cabins. Those volcanoes, which you will get to ascend and descend, include Casa Blanca (1,990m), Villarrica (2,840m), Llaima (3,125m) and Lonquimay (2,890m). We will also be stopping in lovely places like Pucon and Malacahuello during this period as well.

At this point, if you would like, the trip can end on the ninth day, and we can return to Bariloche. However, if you want to enjoy even more splitboarding, we can also spend two more days enjoying the Copahue volcano (2,297m). Thus ending the trip at eleven days. The choice is entirely up to you.

To splitboard on five different volcanoes in Patagonia is a dream come true for many people. And if that dream is yours, too, I would be happy to help make it come true. Just send me a request. I look forward to hearing from you.

Do you only have a week in Patagonia? Then join me on this 7 day splitboarding adventure.

Mountain Guide

Mountain Guide - EPGAMT - Argentina
I was born in Patagonia, Argentina and formed at an early age as a climber in the Nahuel Huapi National Park. Currently I completed a large number of rock and ice climbing routes, backcountry skiing and ascents in many mountains around the world such as Mt. Lhotse (8.516 mts.), the 4th highest peak in the world, without using supplemental oxygen (May, 2012).
I'm a certified Mountain Guide from the EPGAMT and a member of the Argentinian Mountain Guides Association (AAGM) and work on Mt. Aconcagua, which I had repeatedly ascended, as well as in other peaks in the Central Andes, Patagonia, Chile, Peru, Bolivia and in The Himalayas in Nepal.
During the winter season, I practice backcountry skiing, mostly on the volcanoes in Patagonia, where I can offer you different adventures, according to your level (beginner, learner or advanced learner).
I feel very privileged to work as a mountain guide, to do the job that I love, and to be able to share it with people that have the same passion.
Join my expeditions and I will provide you a high standard of safety and personal attention!

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.
