Our guests can live the one of a kind experience of being lifted off in a Bell 407 helicopter from aboard the Atmosphere and flown to exclusive locations in the Andes and Coastal Mountain Ranges of the Patagonia. The helicopter will transport the adventurers to peaks that have been previously explored by Nomads´ specialists, proving their accessibility, level of difficulty and quality of descent.
The virgin snow allows expert skiers to slide down at great speed on slopes overlooking the sea and with panoramic views of glaciers and fjords. Few places in the world offer such a spectacular combination of perfect snow, adrenaline packed adventure and breathtaking landscapes.
Skiers can also experience wide array of other activities such as trekking, kayaking, rafting hidrospeed and jetboating in unexplored surroundings of incredible beauty, in the southernmost corner of the world.
Back onboard the Atmosphere, our Heliski guests enjoy Nomads´ Grand Class service; high cuisine, open bar, SPA, specialized attention and all the other components which make this voyage an unforgettable and unique experience.
Unlike our other programs, Heli-skiing program will not be available on every Nomads trip but only on exclusively programmed trips from mid September to November – the best months to ski in Patagonia due to their climatic conditions.
