Description

Located just next to Lake Llanquihue - Chile's second biggest lake, at over 86 square kilometres - these 3 tours are absolute gems. 2 of the routes are on Osorno, largely considered one of, if not the, most beautiful volcanoes on the continent.

The easiest line is "Calbuco via Río Blanco", a beautiful trip up an incredible natural feature. The 2 routes on Osorno are much trickier, with both being suitable to ski only in good conditions. The weather in the region is also notoriously changeable and this is a major consideration as being stuck high on Osorno in bad visibility would be a serious situation.

If conditions and weather align, all of these routes exemplify what Chilean skiing is about about - challenging terrain and conditions, epic ambience and some of the best views on the planet!
