12 Days

  • Climb to the top of and ski down 6 amazing volcanoes.
  • Explore the beautiful landscape of southern Chile.
  • Spend a day in the soothing hot water of the Puyehue hot spring.


There is an abundance of spectacular volcanoes in beautiful southern Chile, and on this 12 day ski touring adventure, I would like to take you to the summits of a number of them.

On this amazing trip, you will get to climb to the top of and ski down no less than 6 incredible volcanoes!

Those volcanoes are as follows.

  • Casablanca volcano

  • Mocho volcano

  • Villarica volcano

  • Llaima volcano

  • Osorno volcano

  • Lonquimay Volcano

You can be assured that each volcano provides an experience as unique as the volcano itself. Furthermore, you will be spending anywhere from 5 to 10 hours on each peak. Hence giving you plenty of time to appreciate the beauty on the way up and the thrill of the ride on the descend back down.

Along with visiting the volcanoes, you will also get to visit and spend a day and night in a number of  beautiful towns in the southern region of Chile. Those towns include Temuco, Pucón and Puerto Varas. Each town will grant you access to the area’s lovely people, culture and cuisine. Moreover, you will also get to relax your tired muscles in a number of  wonderful hot springs, including Puyehue.

While the focus of this trip is climbing up and skiing down volcanoes, there is so much more to it. On this trip you will get to admire and appreciate the gorgeous region that is southern Chile. So send me a request, and let the adventure begin.

What people are saying about Carlos Vasquez Barriga

Unfortunately our trip did not go as planned due to weather and conditions in the mountains, so we had to change our second objective. Our guides handled that with professionalism and determination, which resulted in a successful summit. We summitted the first mountain as well. Overall it was a successful trip and we are grateful for the opportunity to have experienced the country of Chile the way it happened.

Great experience from start to finish. Lupe found my group a great trip on very short notice and our Guides Carlos and Edu were great. Nice long backcountry tours that led to gnarly terrain in the Maipo Valley. Fantastic experience, highly recommend!

Carlos was guiding us very well in the mountains and he knew perfectly, what he was doing on rock or on ice. However, the communication was not the easiest and we also did not learn as much as we wanted on our two "training days" - it was mostly teaching through doing rather than showing us new techniques.

Had a Wonderful Time in the french alps. However, the down side of it, is that I did not make it to the summit because of the weather, and had to make a U-turn from 4,400m altitude, just 1-2h away from the summit. Now after the first try, I think this can be organised differently so the chance for the summit is twofold or even three fold. How can it be done differently? Acclimatisation can start at Tete Rouse refuge with overnight stay plus two nights at Goutter refuge. If done this way the chance of making it to the Mont Blanc summit increases. You have a bad weather one morning, but you try it from 12noon & have plenty of time as you'll slip at Goutter. If all day has bad weather you try again next morning...

Carlos is a very accomplished rock climber, speaks great English, and is fun to be around. We felt very safe while climbing with him on the Sharks Fin, and learned a lot too.

The whole trip was excellent. Explore share did a great job coordinating. Carlos is an experienced guide and effective teacher. I felt safe with him the whole time we were on the mountain. The weather was terrific and we summited just as expected. I highly recommend Carlos Vasquez for Mont Blanc.

Carlos was a professional and committed guide! We had three great days. He was friendly and guided us savely up to mt blanc. i dont understand the one bad rating carlos got. In my opinion it think it was an bloody amateur which shouldnt have been on mt blanc in the first place. Let me say one thing. If you have no experience on higher mountains and in climbing in general, there is no place for you on mt blanc. train hard, prepare and come with the right expectation!
