8 Reviews

  • Location: Santiago, Chile
  • Duration: 8 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 3452SCL303E

Take a private day trip from Santiago to Portillo, one of the most well known ski resorts in Chile. Admire the spectacular Andes landscapes on the scenic drive, then spend the day enjoying the beautiful mountain scenery as your guide tells you the history and legends of the area, including stunning Inca Lake.

Whether visiting in summer or winter, you will witness breathtaking views of Laguna del Inca from the Hotel Portillo. Simply stunning!

Portillo is the oldest ski area in South America, and its history holds an important place in the legend of skiing. It is a history of adventurers and the Andes, and of dreams and accomplishments in the wonderful world of skiing.

Depart from your Santiago hotel and head towards the town of Los Angeles, one of the major agricultural centers of the region. The drive is through the Aconcagua Valley, slowly climbing until the last stage known as 'los caracoles'. A series of hairpin bends climbing steeply to a height of 2.855 meters / 9 421 feet above sea level, where the Hotel Portillo and the ski resort are located, overlooking the Inca Lake.

Your guide will tell you the legend of the Inca Lake and why the color of blue water is so striking. You are free to explore the ski resort at your leisure, and during ski season you may wish to take to the slops with equipment hire available (additional cost).

The ski season is from June to August, but the hotel is open all year round.

We had a fantastic trip to Portillo. The guide was helpful and friendly. He helped us with our rentals, told us about the area and was always available for helping us. The driver of the van was amazing. The hairpin turns were quite an experience but we all felt so comfortable with our amazing driver. Skiing was great. I would recommend this trip to people who want to go and ski as there is not much else to do but ski. The skiing and lifts were a highlight!
