Full description

Following pick-up from your hotel (available from the districts of Providencia, Las Condes, Vitacura and Santiago Centro), depart Santiago and journey to the beautiful ski resort of Farellones.

Nestled in a small valley in the Andes Mountains, Farellones was the first ski center to open in Chile and continues to attract skiers of all abilities. Take a scenic 2-hour drive along a mountain road to get wonderful views of the mountains. 

During the winter, benefit from the chance to stop to rent snow gear (at your own expense), and learn more about the historical aspects of how this little community works during the winter season.

Continue for approximately 45 minutes to La Parva Ski Center, considered the most exclusive ski resort in the region. Then, go to El Colorado Ski Center to hit the slopes, and take part in activities such as zip-lining, tubing, riding a cable car and snow sledding. 

If you prefer, relax in the lodge and enjoy lunch (at your own expense) overlooking the snow-capped mountains. Return to Santiago and get dropped of at approximately 06:00 PM.

Finally I took the personalized transfer tour just to go skiing and come back. Incredible attention! He waited for me with the phone and was attentive to all the driver ... not to mention how pleasant the trip was ... very good to take with a group of friends to go skiing. 100% recommended

Excellent trip ... we went on September 16 and there was enough snow and we had a great time, the trip is cheap, it does not include entrance to Farellones but you can pay separately and at the determined time return with the same tour, there are stops so you can go to the bathroom and rent clothes and shoes sky boards food etc.

Incredible experience, we who are from the north of the country it is not common to see snow, but the guide explained everything to us in detail, he even worried about how we were feeling due to the height and the curves, totally recommended and very grateful to Daniel for his hospitality and desire to strike up a conversation with the passengers was not only the one who took us but also became part of the travel group. Totally recommendable from the service to the information.
