  • Skiing and Snowboarding in Chile

    The best places for skiing or snowboarding in Chile are near Santiago - Valle Nevado, La Parva, El Colorado and a little further away - Portillo. Each of these places has its own website with information on lift passes and rental information: Valle Nevado La ParvaEl Colorado Portillo There are places to ski further south (Chillan, Pucon and...

  • Rivers and lakes

    Fishing is the number one sport in Tierre del Fuego. Brown trout and rainbow trout can weigh up to 30 some pounds here. Rio Grande and Lago Blanco are the most sought after spots to fish but there are many other unspoiled rivers and lakes.Several tour companies can make the arrangements for your fishing trip.

  • Hike the right direction

    If you are backpacking around the Torres Del Paine Circuit, I highly recommend that you go the direction which takes you DOWN from the glacier fields to Grey Lake. It's treacherous anyway in wet weather going down this steep, slippery slope; frankly I can't imagine trying to hike UP it with a pack when it's muddy. Camp Paso, in the middle of this...

  • Skiing & Snowboarding near Santiago,...

    The main ski resorts of Chile are well developed and get great snow. I have visited the main ones and found them to have excellent snow from mid June to the end of September. You can bring your own gear however the resorts of Termas de Chillan, Valle Nevado and Portillo all have good rental equipment,

  • Skiing/boarding in Portillo!!

    We were in Portillo for one week and it was probably the MOST amazing time ever! Portillo is an all-inclusive resort in the Andes, about a 3.5hr drive from Santiago. Portillo holds only 500 guests and is the ONLY hotel. There are 450 staff members to wait on you, hand and foot and the mountain terrain is just really great! The views are spectacular...

  • Biking the Hills of Chile

    If you can handle the hills of Chile, biking is a fabulous way to see the country! I headed out with a group on a tour organized by gradosur ( We drove to the beach town of Pichilemu and from there spent 2 days cycling the hills in the area. This is not a trip for those looking for a casual ride around the area but worth the effort for...

  • Rafting, kayaking... It's a white-water...

    Chile, an Andean country, is a perfect place to practice any kind of white-water sports. Rafting, kayaking, canyoning fans can find here ideal spots. From Maipo river located close to Santiago and suitable for beginners to Futalefu river – one of most challenging in the world! You can take classes of kayaking, you can buy an adventure-pack, you...

  • Hiking Volcan Villarica in Pucon, Chile

    Unfortunately, I never actually got to hike up the volcano and peer into its fiery maw, because the tour group -- who were certainly eager to get us to sign up and to take our money -- never came to get us, as promised. It was a long drawn out ordeal but the bottom line is, NEVER USE POLITUR in Pucon. That's P-O-L-I-T-U-R. Bad. Don't use.

  • Soccer with the locals!

    If you really want to get in touch with the locals, why not play a game of soccer with the kids?On the Chilean island of Chiloe, we had a ball watching the kids play soccer in their oversized gumboots!At first they were a bit shy, but they soon gave us big smiles and showed off their 'David Beckham' kicking skills - although they had no idea who...

    Chile's coast offers exceptional diving, so from North to South you can dive in almost every beach.Easter Island is also great place to dive ;o)*Photo: taken from* If you're used to scuba diving, then you know what to bring, if you don't, better if you ask for diving instructors or clubs.

During February and March the river usually runs between 6.000 and 20.000 cfs.*Photo: taken from...
