Mountain Guide


Coyhaique, Chile


Winter Mountaineering, Andes Mountain Climbing


Spanish, English

He was born and raised in Coyhaique, the capital city of the Region of Aysén in Patagonia. Since he was a child, he has travelled the roads of the region, enchanting himself with its landscapes, its culture and the perspective of knowing pristine and remote places. This is what motivated him to study at the Patagonia School of Guides, training and working in mountains & glaciers. Interested in knowing more about the ancient people that inhabited the territory, he also worked as an assistant in archaeology research for a few years.

After several expeditions to the Ice Fields, and after improving with various courses and trips to different latitudes of the Andes Range, he became a member of the National Association of Guides. 

He is always willing to listen, share & learn new things, with the motivation of travelling to other places to enrich his own experience and find new horizons
