Cipreses Valley is located in the province of Chachapoal, more precisely in the Cipreses National Park. Is has a unique fauna and flora and is ideal for practicing nature activities.
I propose a 8-day program in which we’ll discover the spectacular Andes mountains while doing this great activity: Heliski. I bring all my knowledge and experience to make you live an unforgettable experience.
– DAY 1: Meeting at the Santiago de Chile airport. Then we’ll move to the lodge in the mountain where we spend the night.
– DAY 2 – 6: The first heliskiing day we’ll take it slowly to be acclimatize to the altitude. The next days we’ll enjoy amazing heliski routines in which we’ll appreciate the incredible landscapes that Andes’s offers.
– DAY 7: After taking our breakfast, we have the last heli ski day in the Andes. Afterwards, we take a transfer to Santiago where we spend our last night in a 5 stars hotel.
– DAY 8: Finally, we’ve breakfast in the morning and then fly back to home.
During all the trip, we’ll stay in the spectacular VIK lodge. It is really comfortable accommodation, with a great design and located in a great natural setting.
As a final point, participants should be in a good physical condition and have some prior heliski experience.

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.
