If you know Hergé’s ”Tintin in Tibet” you will remember the snow rackets he uses to climb the Himalaya mountains.
During winter time (June to September) you can experience snow shoe trekking through the wilderness of the snowy Andes, the only sounds being your footsteps on the snow. You will observe the silence and the breathtaking beauty of the high Andes in the Cajón del Maipo area called Lagunillas.
We start our adventure in a cozy Swiss ski chalet located in the midst of the Andes Hills.
Here we get ready for our snow shoe adventure with a coffee or a hot chocolate and a little something to eat. The trekking will be around 2 hours, depending on your preferred pace.
Once we arrive back a hearty home cooked meal awaits us, prepared by our Swiss cook!
You don’t need to fulfill a certain physical state, as we adjust the walk to your fitness. It really is about the fun of trying out this hundreds of years old way of moving on snow.
Please bring warm but sporty clothing, as you will get warm soon after starting the walk. A backpack is useful and be sure to bring a hat, sunglasses for snow and sunscreen.
You will be picked up at 08.00 and returned by 18.00 max to your hotel (2 hours drive from Providencia).
