Description

Discover the Andes in a different way and enjoy amazing splitboarding ascents in the main Chilean Volcanoes. It’s my pleasure to lead this 8 day trip around some of the most interesting backcountry spots we have in Patagonia.

This tour starts at Temuco’s airport in Central Chile, south of its capital Santiago. From there we will climb outstanding volcanoes of the region as Lonquimay (2865 m) and Llaima (3125 m). The idea is to ascend their summits with the help of our splitboards and then get to snowboard down their amazing slopes and chutes. At the end of each day you’ll have an optional bath in the local hot springs to relax.

Then we will move to Pucón, a locality of the district of Lagos also in the center of the country. Our next goals will be the Villarrica and Osorno volcanoes. From Osorno, a transfer can take you back to the airport or to Bariloche.

This adventure requires an excellent fitness level. Additionally, a solid backcountry snowboarding experience and expert splitboarding skills are also mandatory.

As a professional mountain guide based in El Chaltén, I know both sides of the Andes perfectly. Let me guide you on this fantastic splitboarding tour in Chile. Send your request now and make your reservation!

About the guide

Certified UIAGM-IFMGA Mountain Guide from Argentina.

I live in El Chaltén since 1998. I'm originally from Bariloche and I started with mountain activities when I was 15 years old. I've done climbing and ascents in many mountains of Patagonia, Perú, Bolivia, United States and Europe; such as Fitz Roy, Cerro Torre, Alpamayo, El Capitán, Mont Blanc and Aconcagua among others. I'm also a Ski Instructor and I am passionate for backcountry ski.

I speak fluent English, Italian and French and have been leading trips and expeditions for more than 20 years. I work together with a group of guides, so if I'm not available for the trip you request, one of my colleagues will guide you!
