Description

The volcanos of Southern Chile, in the Araucania Region, offer countless ski mountaineering possibilities. Come and enjoy the winter season with a professional mountain guide.

Let's conquer 3 summits in 3 days and ski through the highest quality snow!

During this ski tour we'll climb the Villarrica, Lonquimay and Llaima volcanoes. All of them are over 2800 meters of altitude! The main reasons why I love guiding in these volcanoes are:

  • The landscapes you'll admire during this trip are unique;

  • Welcoming culture of Southern Chile;

  • You'll climb and ski with an experienced ski mountaineering guide.

The Lonquimay Volcano (2865 m) is our first objective. We'll climb and ski it with daypacks. The mountain towers above the Malalcahuello village are one of the best ski goals in the region. They offer a sustained 35° descent down from the summit.

The Llaima Volcano (3125 m) is one of the most visually stunning peaks of the Southern Chilean volcanoes. We'll climb and ski its northeastern shoulder. Llaima's last eruption was in 2009!

Finally, the Villarica Volcano (2847 m) offers classic conical shape towers above Pucon. Moreover, it is one of only five volcanoes in the world with an active lava lake in the crater. Similar to our first goal Lonquimay, we'll climb and ski Villarica with daypacks. We'll cover 1615 vertical meters, ending at the ski area on the lower flanks.

This 3-day expedition implies a significant challenge. That is why you will need considerable experience in ski touring and mountaineering. This trip is open to all people in excellent physical condition with downhill skiing abilities. Keep in mind we must ascend and descend around 900 meters in a day, carrying a 15-20 l backpack.

If you find this ski tour interesting please fill out the form and get in touch with me. If I am not available at the date of your arrival, my brother Cristobal will lead this fantastic trip. Both are focused on leading a fun, safe and successful ski touring adventure!

About the guide

IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Chile

Some highlights of my climbing career: First Chilean to Cerro Torre via Ragni, first Torres del Paine alpine style traverse, and many other first ascents.

I did the IFMGA/UIAGM aspirant course in Bolivia in 2016, and recently got my full IFMGA certification in April 2018. I have also AIARE level 2 training.

Come and discover the mountains of Chile, a wonderful country, where we will have a unique experience together with a professional guide, in a truly unforgettable trip, it will be a pleasure to be able to guide you through some of the mountains of my country in your next vacations, i am sure will be the first of many adventures that we will enjoy together in the mountains of the Andes.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
