Sebastian Lucas

Trekking Guide

I am a trekking guide and also a physical education teacher. I like to walk and run in the mountains, that keeps me trained. Every year I work in Aconcagua during the season, from early December to the last days of February.

I started working as a guide in 2021, and I have been guiding since then. I love my work, and I really love to share my experiences with people. I work with small and large groups. I also make 1-1 expeditions. I guide trekking and rock climbing, but also I make activities that involve wineyards or typical areas of Mendoza.

What people are saying about this trip

5.00

Sebastian was one of the best guides I’ve ever hiked with. His athleticism as an ultra marathon runner, his expertise in mountaineering and him being bilingual in English and Spanish made our trip an incredible experience that changed my life.

5.00

Sebastian is a Jack of all trades! He took great care of us, fixing broken tent zipper, cooking, carrying extra bags for exhausted climber(which was me lol). I couldn’t have summited without him, really a great guide!

5.00

Sebastian is super kind, knowledgeable and extremely emotionally intelligent which makes for a very good guide. He knows the mountain and any issues that arise (including with gear) he handles like a wizard. Just an amazing person.

5.00

I have gone on 4 guided mountaineering trips total (in USA, Ecuador, Mexico, and Aconcagua with Sebastian). Sebastián is the best guide I have ever had. He was extremely kind, caring, and made the trip a wonderful experience for our whole group. His passion for the mountains was infectious, and he inspired me to be a better climber.

5.00

The trip didn’t go as planned, but Seba and our other guide made our trip. He was a great guide, very high energy, super kind and understanding, and always wanted to play cards.
