Description

From the scenic snowcapped mountains to the adrenaline of zooming down the slopes, there’s no better way to spend winter in Santiago than a day skiing in the Andes. Just an hour or two outside of Santiago, you’ll find the top-rated ski resorts in South America. Join local guide Hernán as you venture into the mountains. This expert mountain guide will pick you up bright and early to stop at a rental shop, so you can pick up any clothes and equipment you may need. Then you will drive up a curvy mountain in a safe, sturdy, and comfortable van.

Once we’ve arrived at the ski town, you’ll get to pick which ski center you’d like, whether it’s the internationally renowned Valle Nevado, the local favorite La Parva, or the beginner-friendly Farellones. If you are interested, you can also have a private lesson with an expert ski instructor. With an exciting day in the Andes Mountains, you’ll enjoy the thrill of skiing, the meditation of the mountains, and scenic views like never before.

Hernán and Felipe

We're two friends, both born and raised in Santiago. Since we were little, we've been exploring the land, whether we're rock climbing, skiing, or hiking, and we can't get enough of it! Santiago may seem like a city of big buildings and lots of cars, but for us, it’s a unique playground of mountains, valleys, and nature. Come explore it with us!

Hernán
Growing up in Chile, a country with immense natural beauty, my parents always taught me to appreciate and respect nature. Today, I hope to share those ideals with as many people as possible and show to the world how incredible my country truly is.  

Before becoming a guide, I would spend every summer camping. Every year I went somewhere different, exploring the most off-the-beaten-path, unique parts of the country, in search of the best mountains to hike, the biggest granite walls to climb, and the steepest snow slopes to ski down. No matter what sport I was doing, the best part was the pure happiness of being surrounding by nature. After years of these trips, I decided I wanted to a job that would not only allow me to explore nature even more, but also to protect and share the beauty of this land with travelers from around the world. Hosting eco-tours in and around Santiago has become the perfect way for me to do just that. 

Felipe
Born and raised in Santiago, I spent my childhood constantly playing sports and exploring the great outdoors. Growing up, I was always hiking or camping, anything to escape the crowd of the city. Being in the nature is my ultimate happiness, so I knew I needed a job that would let me spend all day outside. Being a guide was the best way for me to transfer all my passion and knowledge to as many people as possible. So I ventured to the best national parks across Chile from San Pedro de Atacama all the way to Torres del Paine National Park to work as a guide.

Living and working in these outstanding spots gave me the chance to grow as a guide while also improving my rock climbing skills. I’ve climbed big walls over 1,000 meters high across the country. My experience exploring the mountains of Chile inspired me to return back to Santiago to show off the incredible nature we have right here at home. On all of my tours, my main goal is to make sure my travelers have the ultimate adventure while still staying safe.
