Confirmed Departure: Bike and Wine in Colchagua Wine Valley 6 days tour, October and December 2014
Experience the adventure of skiing on 7 active volcanoes, reaching its live craters and skiing or snowboarding off-piste.
If someone say to you that you would be standing on the top of a live Volcano looking down into the center of the earth with bubbling lava one minute, and then skiing off piste in perfect snow the next, you’d think they are crazy. Yet we offer you to experience exactly that. You might be familiar with Valle Nevado and Portillo the main Chilean ski destinations but we want to persuade you that there is a totally different side to skiing in Chile.
Corralco, Araucarias, Pucon, Huilo Huilo, Antillanca and Osorno are ski areas very few skiers have ever heard about. You are probably used to The 3 Valleys with hundreds of ski lifts stretching in every direction, but here you are going to be travelling half way around the world to ski in resorts with only one or two ski lifts! You probably think we have to be joking, but we are not.
What’s the point heading half way across the world to ski in somewhere exactly the same as your own back door. This will be a totally different type of ski experience. The scenery spectacular, the hospitality overwhelming, the skiing totally different and the opportunity to ski from the top of live volcanoes!
We are offering the ultimate Chilean skiing experience, designed for skiers from limited or no off piste experience to off piste experts. The lure of the volcanoes is overwhelming with our ultimate volcano itinerary. Climb and ski off the top of 7 Volcanoes in 12 days!
So here are ‘The 7 Volcanoes’: Lonquimay, Llaima, Villarrica, Mocho, Choshuenco, Casablanca and Osorno. If you think one volcano is the same as another, think again. Everyone is different. Different shapes, different scenery, different summits and different history.

• Professional mountain guide with you at all times.
• Private chef cooking for the group every day.

Difficulty: Advanced (up to 7 hours of physical activity per day). You are an all mountain skier, but you don’t need to be an Olympic skier. You can ski “reds” and “blacks” whatever the conditions and at a good pace. Bumps and off-piste – not bad. You want to get to that “I can ski anything on the mountain” mode to become the best “All-Mountain Skier”. Our mountain guides and ski instructors will take you to that level. You will enjoy the backcountry in its full expression. Don’t worry if you are unsure of your exact level. A rough guess is good enough. We sort it all out in the resort on the first evening when you arrive.
Experience the adventure of skiing on active volcanoes, reaching its live craters on a snowmobile and skiing or snowboarding off-piste. Truly a once in a lifetime experience!!
