More Info

Chile is a country in South America known for tall mountains and long rivers. It borders the Pacific Ocean to the west and Argentina to the east. It also shares a border with Peru and Bolivia in the north. Its unique geographic shape lends itself to a compelling history, including a biodiversity and network of ecosystems that are the rare byproduct of its longitudinal range. Santiago serves as a major transportation hub in the center of the country, with many exciting programs taking place further to the north and south. The Andes Mountains on the border with Argentina serve as a hiker’s playground. The arid north offers a very different trek than the other elevated programs throughout central Chile and further south to the glaciated parts of the country.

Christian was an amazing guide and made sure everyone was safe and looked after. It was an awesome experience.
Suzanne Foster for Ascent to Lascar Volcano, Chile
Great experience ….. thank you for the great trip. I’m coming back to Chile.
The trip was great.  Christian was an excellent guide.
The trip was a great experience with a wonderful view! However, unfortunately the tour description does not fit with the actual
tour. There was no breakfast with acclimatisation and the duration was shorter. Most important the tour was not guided by Christian, but by some of his employes which did not speak English so we didn’t get much explanations except some fragments that we understood in Spanish. Therefore we were a litlle disappointed concerning the guide of this tour.
Our Cerro Castillo trek was a highlight of our Patagonia trip. Our guide, Nacho, was a great hiking companion and
very accommodating of our preferences, including what hike we wanted to do, what time we wanted to start in the morning and our pace. He also took the time to meet up with us the evening before to discuss logistics. He spoke great English and we had a truly memorable day.
The trip was awesome. Our guide Nicolas was extremely knowledgeable about the terrain and very helpful. He is an
expert guide. The sights were beautiful. The office quickly responded to our request and questions and provided excellent information.
I was really disappointed with Casa de Guias. It was not a terrible experience because Casa de Guias had found
a wonderful guide and assistant although they did not know them (allmountain guide). As to Explore -Share I don´t intent to buy anything. I will write a full description of what happened by e-mail.
A+++ fantastic guide, very professional, knowledgeable and entertaining. Thank you Cristian for a memorable day!
Pere was great!!! Lots of great tips, great company- amazing guide!!!
Are you up for a rewarding adventure – go for the Lascar Volcano. Our very experienced guide Christian Fernandez made
sure everything was in place for a great experience, from safe driving to making breakfast to setting a good pace for reaching the top without being too affected by the altitude. Stunning views and a great sense of accomplishment, our thanks to Christian and explore-share.com for a truly memorable hike. Best regards, Erik (37) and Christopher (30), Norway
