TREKKING IN PATAGONIA
We have been guiding in Torres del Paine, Patagonia since 1997. In that time, Torres del Paine was a pristine National Park, almost without services such as refuges, hot showers, meals, maps, etc...so for all our logistics, we carried day by day all our tents, food,  using horses and porters. Our experience since these years, give to our today´s trips a uncomparable difference in small and hidden details that make your trip in an a pleasant experience.

LOCAL GUIDES

Without a doubt, local guides knows vey well our mountain area and they have many years of experience climbing, trekking and riding mountain bikes. Chilean and argentinean local guides that work in Aconcagua and Central Andes of Chile, have a lot of experience working in any conditions.
