Description

Join us for the ultimate ski or snowboard experience as we ascend Volcano Lanín. This volcano sits across both Argentina and Chile, and at an altitude of 3,776 metres is one of the highest mountains in the region’s “ring of fire”. First, we’ll climb the mountain, then we’ll spend hours coasting down it, enjoying the virgin snow.

What to expect

The terrain is varied and steep on the mountain. We’ll spend our first day climbing and hiking across rock, ice and snow before stopping to camp for the night in a mountain hut.

The next day we’ll continue to the summit and the climb will get even steeper. It will all be worth it though. Once we’re at the summit we’ll take a breather to enjoy breathtaking views of Chile, Argentina and the other mountains and lakes in the area.

Then we get to the really fun part: hours of skiing and snowboarding down the face of a volcano.

The slopes are pretty steep at first, so it’s not for the faint-hearted. But, once we get going we’ll enjoy virgin snow with runs that last for over 1,000 metres.

Don’t miss out of this awesome chance to ski or snowboard down a volcano. Request to book now and join us in the mountains.
