Spanish and Skiing in Santiago de Chile

Lying at the foot of the Andes mountains, Santiago is not only the social and cultural centre of Chile, but it is also a major attraction for skiers and snowboarders from all over the world. Located just 35 miles from the Valle Nevado, Chile’s largest ski resort, Santiago is the ideal place to take a Spanish and Skiing course and combine culture with snow-filled action and adventure! Our Spanish language school arranges skiing and snowboarding trips to the Andes, the second highest mountain range in the world. The peaks of the mountains rise to over 5,000 metres (19,000 feet), giving the city a remarkable backdrop and offering magnificent views of snow-capped summits that can be seen throughout Santiago.

Our Spanish school is located in one of the safest neighbourhoods of Santiago de Chile, with countless cafes, bars and restaurants within easy reach.
