Heli-biking in Chile’s Lake District

Thrill to the challenge of an extreme downhill track

The essence of heli-biking

This is an exhilarating, tailor-made biking experience, planned with our helicopter pilot. Leave the lodge at your preferred time, and enjoy a scenic 20-minute flight to the Villarrica Volcano. Once landed below the snow and ice on the side of the Volcano, you will hop on your bike for a thrilling, 1hr downhill trail ride that follows a cross country track over lava fields, along the border of Turbio River. This terrain requires superior, technical biking skills as all the heli-biking routes follow a volcanic course peppered with volcanic gravel. After the ride, a vehicle will be waiting to bring you back to the lodge. Ask your pilot and guide if you want to do more than just one epic downhill trail and additional options can be explored at your convenience. Ensure that you are adequately equipped with warm clothing and a windproof jacket, as temperatures while heli-biking can plummet to 8°C (17.6°F), even in summer months. This adrenaline-fuelled adventure is not for the faint-hearted, but if you are passionate about heli-biking, it doesn’t get any better than this.

This activity is at an additional cost.
