Mountain Guide

I was born in the mountains, and outdoor activities have been my passion ever since I was a child. I enjoy rock climbing and have done so competitively. I also enjoy trekking and skiing and have a special affinity for ski touring on volcanoes in my native Chile.

I have been a mountain guide since 2014 and have a vast experience ski touring on the volcanoes near my home in Pucón, a beautiful lakeside town in southern Chile.

If you are looking for an amazing experience in the outdoors, the Villarrica Volcano is the destination for you! This volcano is the most active volcano in all of South America, and you'll even have the chance to see a lava lake as you climb. You can combine this climb with visits to the other active volcanoes in the area to create an thrilling outdoor adventure unlike any other!

Amazing guide and a very memorable experience. It would be better to make the chat function on explore-share better as the UX is relatively clunky.
