Description

The volcanoes of the Chilean Araucania Region offer amazing terrains for winter sports. On this 3-day splitboarding trip you will explore Villarrica, Lonquimay and Llaima under my expert guidance!

This program combines climbing and splitboarding in Southern Chile. We will reach 3 over-2,800m summits in 3 days, ride on top-quality snow, and enjoy stunning alpine landscapes.

On the first day we will head up to the top of the Lonquimay Volcano (2,865 m). After reaching its summit we will be ready for a 35° splitboard descent. The Llaima Volcano (3,125 m) will be our second objective. Last erupted in 2009, this is one of the most beautiful of the Southern Chilean volcanoes. We’ll climb and ride its northeastern shoulder.  Finally, on the third day we will climb the Villarrica Volcano (2,847 m) which has an active lava lake in its crater. We will climb 1,615 vertical meters, ending with an amazing powder splitboarding descent.

This 3-day expedition poses a significant challenge. Therefore, you need considerable experience in both powder splitboarding and mountaineering to join. Additionally, you should also be in excellent physical condition to ascend and descend around 900 meters per day, carrying a 15-20 L. backpack.

Are you ready for an exhilarating splitboarding tour in the Andes? Then book your place now and join me on this 3-day adventure in the Chilean Araucania Region!
