We're two friends, both born and raised in Santiago. Since we were little, we've been exploring the land, whether we're rock climbing, skiing, or hiking, and we can't get enough of it! Santiago may seem like a city of big buildings and lots of cars, but for us, it’s a unique playground of mountains, valleys, and nature. Come explore it with us!
Growing up in Chile, a country with immense natural beauty, my parents always taught me to appreciate and respect nature. Today, I hope to share those ideals with as many people as possible and show to the world how incredible my country truly is.
Before becoming a guide, I would spend every summer camping. Every year I went somewhere different, exploring the most off-the-beaten-path, unique parts of the country, in search of the best mountains to hike, the biggest granite walls to climb, and the steepest snow slopes to ski down. No matter what sport I was doing, the best part was the pure happiness of being surrounding by nature. After years of these trips, I decided I wanted to a job that would not only allow me to explore nature even more, but also to protect and share the beauty of this land with travelers from around the world. Hosting eco-tours in and around Santiago has become the perfect way for me to do just that.
Born and raised in Santiago, I spent my childhood constantly playing sports and exploring the great outdoors. Growing up, I was always hiking or camping, anything to escape the crowd of the city. Being in the nature is my ultimate happiness, so I knew I needed a job that would let me spend all day outside. Being a guide was the best way for me to transfer all my passion and knowledge to as many people as possible. So I ventured to the best national parks across Chile from San Pedro de Atacama all the way to Torres del Paine National Park to work as a guide.
Living and working in these outstanding spots gave me the chance to grow as a guide while also improving my rock climbing skills. I’ve climbed big walls over 1,000 meters high across the country. My experience exploring the mountains of Chile inspired me to return back to Santiago to show off the incredible nature we have right here at home. On all of my tours, my main goal is to make sure my travelers have the ultimate adventure while still staying safe.
It’s no surprise that we are passionate about rock climbing. Since we were kids, we've been climbing, and it only gets more and more exciting. For us, it’s one of the purest sports, allowing you to really connect with nature in such a thrilling way. It really is both adventure and meditation in one sport!
My dream vacation isn’t a destination, but a new place to get lost in nature. Wherever I’m dreaming of, I don’t know where exactly it is but I know it’ll have huge climbing walls, exciting mountain trails, and an awe-inspiring sunset. While I love nature, I would also love a dream vacation that allows me to really learn about another culture. I would also love a trip that lets me really get to know the food, people, and local customs of a place. To me, it really doesn’t matter where I am as long as either nature or culture is involved.
While it’s hard to pick just one destination, I’d have to say Patagonia is my favorite place in the world. There’s nothing quite like it. In this remote part of the world, you’re able to see untouched nature and wildlife in its natural habitat. The land’s natural beauty is unreal with the most colorful and impressive mountains, glaciers, and lakes. It’s as if you are stepping back in time to the age of the dinosaurs. Even though I lived and worked there for four years, I’m always dreaming to go back and witness that beauty once more.
- It usually takes them a while to reply in this website which is because they have other tours during the day but I think it could be better if they could reply as soon as possible instead of once a day or once in two days. - The instructors during the paragliding was ok but I don't think I met any named Hernan, James or Felipe during the tour.

Hernan was a great guide. The road to the ski hills is very steep with a lot of switchbacks and lots of cars, so it was nice to let someone else drive. He is an excellent skier so we were able to cover the entire mountain. I would love to ski with him again.

Muchísimas cosas nuevas con Felipe. El es súper agradable y atento. Solo nos asustamos de que nos recogió tarde para una llegar a una excursión. Por lo demás siempre a disposición, siempre atento y agradable. Muy interesante todo lo que vimos y aprendimos.

Our guide, Rodrigo, was very nice, prepared snacks and water for our trip. He knew his way around the paths - as some of the paths were covered by snow, he quickly adapted to the new routes. He also didn't try to rush us in any way and even extended our tour with a trip to a local cafe and then a detour around San Jose city.
