Andres O.

Puerto Varas, X, Chile

Born as a "Country boy" in the Southern field of Puerto Varas, Lake District Chile, I was born surrounded by the great Andes mountain range, volcanoes, evergreen forest, lakes, rivers, farmers and "Baqueanos or Gauchos", who gave me their knowledge and wisdom about our root and why we have to respect and love.

I've been working in Travel Companies & Lodges for more than 20 years; from the mystic Atacama Desert in North of Chile, until the desolate South Patagonia in Torres del Paine and Tierra del Fuego. Also I'm a Teacher and Consultant on Rural Tourism Programs in my District.

Thanks God, my family and my hard work; I've traveled and I specialized in Adventure Tourism, Leadership & Business in New Zealand for eighteen months(Scholarship awarded by the Chilean Government - Education Ministry 2011).

With academic studies in Tourism Business & Administration Degree; Wildlife & Native Forest courses; Good knowledge in Local Traditions and Wilderness First Responder courses, I believe I can give you a very professional service and a great "Experience of Life" with our Local People and Native Nature; whom they are the most valuable treasure of our land in Patagonia, Chile.

I'm specialized in operating Small Groups for Cruise ship, Independent Travelers and Tailor Made programs; always focusing on Nature and Local traditions.

Friends, I invite you to visit this beautiful Mapuche land; Evergreen Forests; Lakes; Rivers and Volcanoes; land of Baqueanos and Gauchos; Chilotes Navigators; Songs, Myths and Legends in the confines of the World . . . The Chilean Patagonia!

A Recent Review of this guide

We were very impressed with Andres! Our tender time in port was changed three times yet each time we notified him by email, Andres rolled with it. In the end, we had much less time in port that we had hoped, but he was flexible and we felt like we saw SO much in the time we ended up with. And he even took us to his favorite empanada place when we asked! We also felt like we learned a lot about chile!
