UIMLA Mountain Guide

Neuquen, Argentina

I have been a mountain guide for more than 10 years. I guide all along the Andes Mountain Range, including in Argentina, Chile, Bolivia and Peru.

My high season takes place in northern Patagonia, in the mountains of Chile and Argentina, from August to December. I then focus on Aconcagua during January and February. From April to June, I guide in Cordillera Blanca in Peru.

I really enjoy my job and strive to innovate year after year.
