VOLCANO SPLITBOARD TOUR
Chile 9 days
This trip is a unique Chilean splitboard touring adventure exploring some of the exquisite volcanoes Chile has to offer. Located in Chile’s beautiful lake district, we travel on mules from the lush green forests to backcountry huts, and then ascend on skis and splitboards to the high alpine slopes for exceptional off-season shredding.
Our Chilean split tour objectives are the volcanoes Osorno, Puyehue, Casablanca and Villarica. These non-technical summits are located at manageable altitudes & elevations so the experience is mellow and enjoyable…and no days are lost to acclimating. The splitboard touring varies from epic full days to mellow 2-3 hour adventures. With so many tour options available, it is easy to adapt to the conditions and weather.
We stay in very comfortable haciendas and refugios dining on local seafood and steaks. From the refugios we tour to the spectacular open bowls of the nearby volcanoes, and can finish our days touring to visit local hot springs. What more can you ask for!
Travel is relatively easy with an overnight flight to Santiago, Chile, followed by a short hop to Osorno in the heart of the Lake District.
