Join me for a 10-day expedition, enjoying the best volcano summits in Patagonia. 

This is an ideal trip for advanced and expert skiers, who want to challenge their limits in some of the most amazing spots in the Patagonian Andes. 

We'll ascend and descent 5 Andean Volcanoes: Lanin, Osorno, Casablanca, Lonquimay and Villarica. For that, we'll be crossing the borders between Chile and Argentina several times. 

During this trip you'll enjoy wonderful landscapes and have an amazing ski touring experience!

In Lonquimay Volcano (2865 m) you'll find the best powder snow. Besides, in the Chilean volcano of Villarica you'll see an impressive smoking crater.

In addition, Lanin volcano will be the highest point of this adventure, at 3747 m.

Mountain Guide

I was born in a very remote area of northern Argentina which gave me a special appreciation for the outdoors. When I was 16 my family moved south, closer to the mountains, and I started to climb in the Andes. I've been mountaineering – trekking and climbing – ever since.
I've traveled and climbed throughout Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, the USA, Canada and Europe. I spent two summer seasons working in Aosta, Italy where I completed numerous ascents and climbing on the area.
At some point in my younger years, my career path steered me to the telecommunications industry, scaling towers and fixing cellular systems. But the mountains were never far away and I eventually returned to my roots and become a mountain guide since 2001.
In the winter I focus on being a ski guide around the mountain range and also the volcanoes, this is how I spend part of my time on the winter seasons as well as teaching backcountry ski and avalanche awareness courses.

What people are saying about Lucas

I have been skiing for 40 years and climbing for 10, I was so happy to have Lucas guide me to help me with my skiing goals. I felt safe and comfortable with his knowledge and experience and truly enjoyed the experience. He provided me options for me to choose on the level difficulty or risk that I was willing to take, and allowed me the option to choose. I met my goals and would highly recommend Lucas for future skiing or climbing for others and will connect with him in the future.” Safety and fun is are my two most important goals in the backcountry and he helped achieve those goals

We had really difficult conditions (ice-cold and strong winds), but made it up the top of Pico Argentino. Thanks to Lucas, who is a fantastic guide and a very nice person. Highly recommended tour, which for sure was the highlight of our trip to Patagonia.

It was a real pleasure to spend two amazing days with Lucas. Really nice to spend time with him and most important Lucas is really a good guide. The trips were amazing with a fantastic scenario. Even if snow conditions were not the best, the panorama has played a key role in making this trip unforgettable
