Joaquin C.

Santiago, Región Metropolitana, Chile

I create tailor-made travel experiences where I focus on small groups to take them to live the country and the Andes range in a professional and safe way.

I started my outdoors life when I was a kid, hiking for many hours trying to follow my father, it wasn't so fun but finally, that became my passion and lucky me it became also my work and way of life.

After high school, I studied Ecotourism projects management and I focused on how to create a business with conservation in the Chiloé Island.

Now I spent most of my time on the mountains for training or for work, creating photographs and videos to promote my activities and learning every day.

Most of the times I work guiding full day hiking trips from Santiago, where I can arrange also meals and transportation.

A Recent Review of this guide

I hiked the El Morado hiking tour with Joaquin last week. I am a seasoned "day hiker" who has hiked all over the world. This hike was one of the most dramatic hikes I have ever taken. The pictures do not do it justice. The scenery even at the start of the hike was breathtaking. In addition, Joaquin was professional, thorough, engaging, and overall a stellar young man to lead the hike. Safety was first, conversation second, and the scenery spoke for itself. I cannot over-recommend this hike.
