AAGM Mountain Guide

Bariloche | El Chaltén

Aloja! I´m Diego Simari. I´m 31 years old and I´m still having all my teeth! Patagonian by choice, I grew up in Bariloche - an overwhelming paradise in northern Patagonia - where I still live in.

When I was 19 years old I was introduced into the “vertical world”, andinism, and since then it became my addiction.

Even though I had the chance to meet beautiful places throughout the whole Andes, from Southern Patagonia in Argentina and Chile to the Northern Andes of Bolivia and Perú, I was infatuated by El Chaltén; a little town with not only the most perfect granite needles, and wild surroundings, but with the warmth of real friendship. The place that you dream of!

One thing led to another and I spent more and more time on the mountains… so finally I ended up getting, in 2014, my mountain guide UIAGM IFMGA certificate! Since then I´ve used it as a way for exploring other areas, mainly in El Chalten and Bariloche but also Mendoza, Huaraz and the Alps.

Despite my love for the mountains, dancing has also been my passion since I was young. Part of my living philosophy comes from that side since I’m always trying to find the real rhythm in life! Living without needing too much, exploring, sharing and growing within nature.

And that´s why I found in Patagonia a place for expansion! A place where everything is not only unpolluted but possible.

Come to Patagonia, let me show you this paradise and its magic!!
