Mountain Guide

I'm a mountain person since the very first time I went to them, this around 12 years ago now. From that time I have been always hiking, climbing and skiing in Chile, but also around the world.

I started guiding around 10 years ago: a few Hikes first, then some big mountains in the northern part of Chile, then Patagonia and now in the Araucanía region. But still, I move from north to South in Chile, wherever my clients would love to go.

If you are looking for a professional and responsible guide who will adapt to your requirements please contact me, it will be a pleasure to make a trip where you can get to that objective, but through the process learn more about the place, its culture and environment.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
