12 Days



It’s my pleasure to offer you an unforgettable experience in ski mountaineering during 12 days in the Chilean volcanoes.

Almost all the Chilean volcanoes are located in the South of Chile. It is a really amazing region, where you will find forest, glaciers, mountains and lakes. In this area also live native tribes known as “pehuenches”. They still preserve their culture and lifestyle.

During this 12-day ski tour through the Chilean volcanoes, we’ll spend the night in mountain huts as well as some hotels and cozy lodges. Each new place we visit will have a different level of difficulty. Anyway, I will help you choose the best skiing spots according to the participants skills and experience. Besides that, you don’t have to worry since the Chilean volcanoes are not generally technical summits.

Some of the volcanoes where we’re going to ski are:

  • Lonquimay (28650 m);

  • Llaima (3125 m);

  • Villarrica (2847 m);

  • Mocho (2422 m);

  • Chosuenco (2415 m);

  • Casablanca (2865 m);

  • Osorno (2652 m)

Finally, at the end of this description you can find more details about the day by day itinerary.

Day 1: Flight to Santiago - Temuco.

Flight to Temuco, a city 700 km south of Santiago de Chile, considered the capital of the Mapuche culture. I will pick you up at the airport and transfer to Malalcahuello. Accommodation at Suiza Andina Lodge (D)

Day 2: Lonquimay Volcano - Los Paraguas hut

We’ll ascend to the Lonquimay volcano. From the summit we will see its neighbor peak, the Tolhuaca. We’ll reach a height of about 1400 m. At the end of the day we will move to the Llaima volcano hut, called “Los Paraguas” (B,D)

Day 3: Llaima Volcano

We will ascend to the Llaima volcano. It is an active volcano located in the Conguillio National Park. This volcano offers many possibilities to reach its summit.
