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.

Thanks to Carlos and explore- share staff:) My experience with booking through explore-share and climbing to Mount Blanc with Carlos were fantastic! He is very easy going and flexible.

The guide is friendly and attention to safety. But the arrangement of such time and place is not suitable for us. The first day took the cable car at 1:30 PM and then take the train, stay in Tête Rousse refuge, only spend 5 hours total. And midnight at 2:00 Am started to climb to the summit and straightly back to the train station to catch the train at 5 Pm. It would take 15 hours. The physical strength of the two days was too unbalanced. In fact, I would not have these problems If we stayed in the Gouter refuge on the first day. My husband and I knew that will be a big test for us, but it doesn\'t mean we want to give up the climb to the summit. The uncomfortable thing is, The guide asked to go back even we didn\'t see the Mont Blanc. I am very upset, but the guide insists that I don\'t have a way to resist. My husband and I just slowly walk with disappointment. At 9 Am we arrived at Tête Rousse refuge, and slowly took a meal, slowly descended the mountain, and arrived at the train station at 1 o\'clock, not 5 pm. We spent time and money to climb our dream Mountain, but this is the result, very dissatisfied of.
