About us

We are local workers and entrepreneurs from the Chilean Patagonia. We have experience organizing, guiding and carrying out logistics in many expeditions throughout Patagonia, providing services to renowned international companies; Whether campsite and guided tours in Torres del Paine National Park, or expeditions in the most inhospitable places in the fjords.

With the objective of finding new tourist destinations, since 2008, we have made many expeditions to different places in the fjords and canals of Patagonia. In our adventures we discover the last corners of the world that have not yet been explored; So unknown that they do not even have a name. We managed to create and register new trekking routes, mountain passes, first ascents and many more experiences. We empower our fjords to protect them and add value in a responsible and very professional way.

We seek to satisfy the needs of those customers who love nature, trekking, navigation and above all, the tranquility of a pristine place; Being the only ones in the area. In this way, we've created totally innovative and exclusive tourist products in the fjord lands.

With a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 7 participants we make each expedition, allowing personalized and quality attention.

We are very proud to be the creators of a new and amazing trekking circuit in this new destination, making us the first and the only ones to have accommodations in the Mountains' Fjord; on board of our exclusive floating refuge or mobile campsites. Also, daily excursions and innovative expeditions that complement trekking with navigations. We begin our operations this season 2016-2017.

Our ideology is to impact as minimum as possible in the places where this project is developed, so we take steps and actions necessary to achieve a true commitment to the care of the environment. Our operation is temporary, permiting the place to rest from our presence. During our expeditions and stay in general, we will meticulously remove everything that we must bring for our operation and does not belong to the place; from human waste to the floating refuge itself. At the end of the season, we retired leaving absolutely everything as pure as ever.
