I live and work in Puerto Natales, surrounded by fiords, mountains, and glaciers.
I like to travel and discover new places, so after finishing my university in Chile, I moved to Europe to continue my studies and experience a different culture.
I've been guiding in some of the most beautiful national parks in the south of Chile, trying to contribute to the conservation and the sustainable development of those ecosystems.
Since I was a child, I have cultivated a passion for the outdoors, and thanks to my job, I can do it full-time! In my free time, I am a trail runner, horses rider in endurance racings and mountain climber.
While I am guiding, I try to make my clients "feel in love" with the place, and give information about the local flora and fauna, history and geology. Or, maybe, just enjoy together the silence of the mountains. while walking in this magic land!
If you have a special request, don't hesitate to contact me. I can develop a special customized program for you, we can have fun together all the year round.
Amazing places awaits you here in the Chilean Patagonia!
A Recent Review of this guide
We are so happy we chose Tours By Locals, especially Javier as our guide. He not only spoke perfect English, he was so incredibly knowledgeable about all things Chilean - a walking encyclopedia! He met us in advance to discuss the food, gear, checked our fitness levels and spoke at great length about the terrain for the hike. He also helped to arrange transportation! I would 100% recommend Javier - a 5-Star rating isn't enough! Richard, Lisa, Taylor & Kendall, Austin TX.
