Guide Bio

When I was 21 years old I left all that I was doing and I went to travel around Sudamérica for 5 years. During this trip I met a lot of foreigners travelling in this continent and spent a significant amount of time with the native peoples. I got to know nature with its different landscapes: beautiful sunsets, sunrises, rivers, lakes, seas, etc. This experience left me with a a great amount of gratitude for the opportunity to travel, know other cultures, and see “other things”.

I studied ecotourism in Santiago of Chile, but my big learning experience came with a course that I did with Mapuches (Indigenous people of Southern of Chile). I have now been working as a guide for the the past 5 years. I began doing hiking and outdoor activities, like rock climbing, but over time I started to provide guided city tours, wine tours and many other activities that Chile and its surroundings offer. I love to lead my clients in different activities and act as a bridge to ensure they get what they want from their tour.
