Our philosophy

Active travel is much more than a physical pursuit. Your body, mind, spirit and imagination all of a sudden come alive when there is nothing more between you and the horizon than a beautiful landscape of mountains, lakes and forests. We like to engage in every trip willing to enjoy a unique experience which involves the discovery of awesome natural highlights, local culture, and sometimes even the rediscovery of ourselves.

We have been in this continuous discovery journey for many years, sharing our passion for the mountains of the amazing Patagonia with travellers from all around the world. You might set out to see a special valley, or to get to the top of a mountain. But you´ll eventually sense that it´s the journey, not the arrival, that matters. It´s what you observe and experience as you walk or climb that matters the most. The flight of a condor, the beauty of a rocky spire … We would like to share with you those memorable moments.
