Guide Bio

I am an adventure guide and owner operator of this travel and tour company. I am also a teacher at Los Lagos University in Puerto Montt in sea kayaking and rafting activities. As a native of Puerto Varas, I know and understand this region and its waterways. I offer nature, adventure and environmental trips.

I am a naturalist and trekker, sea kayaker and rafting guide. I studied at the University of Playa Ancha Valparaiso in Physical Training and Outdoor Education. I have helped develop outdoor activities in the area of Puerto Varas since 1990. I have worked closely with Fundacion Pumalin to preserve fragile ecosystem spots in Pumalin Park such as the natural hot spring of Cahuelmo.

My goal over the years has been creating different traverse kayaking and trekking routes, forming guidelines for the outdoor activities and helping form Professionals of Outdoor Recreation in North Patagonia. I have been, and still am actively vocal in various environmental campaigns with Fundacion Patagonia, Oceana and the Pumalin Foundation. Today, I work with the Butler Foundation on different environmental projects in Patagonia, Argentina and Chile.

Thank you for submitting a review. It will be published shortly.
