Experience an unforgettable skiing adventure, journeying through the wild slopes of the three untamed volcanoes in the Araucanía Lacustre region. Blaze through thrilling trails with exceptional dry powder snow, set against the incomparable beauty of the Andes when you come face to face with the Lanin, Quetreupillán, and Villarica volcanoes.

Get ready for an unmatched skiing odyssey as we embark on our journey from Pucón to the Mahuil Malal region, where we'll encounter Lanin, the highest volcano in the area. Once we transport our equipment to a staggering elevation of 2,900 meters (9,518 feet), we'll pitch our camp, take a well-deserved break, and recharge our batteries for the ultimate climb to the highest peak in Araucanía.

After our intense descent from Lanin we'll be able to explore the vibrant city of Pucón and its breathtaking surroundings. Replenish your energy as you relax in the invigorating hot springs, taste some amazing traditional dishes and take in the stunning views of our next destination - the towering Villarica Volcano.

Once re-energized and ready to go, we will set out for the Villarrica Volcano to attempt a summit climb. Ascending this 2,847 meter (9,341 feet) tall volcano is no small feat, but you'll be rewarded with incredible vistas of the surrounding landscape, dominated by ancient forests, rivers and crystal-clear lakes. Reaching the summit, we'll behold the smoke and steam emitted from its wide open crater and feel the raw power of an active volcano.

As our adventure continues, we will push forward towards the awe-inspiring Quetrupillán volcano, and bask in the serene natural beauty of the Araucanian forest. As we climb higher, we'll be greeted by a vast glacier nestled within its crater. This 2,360 meter (7,743 feet) high volcanic wonder is also renowned for its stunning panoramic views, as it stands proudly between the gigantic Villarrica and Lanín volcanoes.

Join us and experience the rush of being on the fierce slopes of these majestic Chilean volcanoes. Contact me today and start planning your next skiing adventure!
