Argentine professional Mountain Guide (AAGM-PNL)
I was born in the Andes area, North Patagonia, and I am a certified guide from the Argentina Mountain Guides Association.
I specialize in guided tours to Lanin volcano, by the normal route or other alternative routes and I also have the authorization of Lanin National Park since 2003. I have done between 30 and 40 ascents to Lanin per season, which gives me the experience and security to plan the safest programs with the best services.
In addition to Lanin, I also specialize in guided tours to Domuyo and Tromen volcanos, and traverses in the San Martin de los Andes area.
I am also an Ecomed lifeguard, and I have done the rescue courses in a leadership and natural environment.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
