ABOUT US

“We will not pioneers ourselves, but we will journey over old trails that will be new for you, and with hearts open.
Who shall distinguish?”

J. Monroe Thoringthon

In Andes Explora we are focused in the present moment, enjoying every step on the mountains or every paddle at the water. For us, the geographic goals are only a excuse to go back to basics, to the simplicity. We believe that when we get out of our comfort zone is when we learn more about ourself and the world around us.

Our Mission: Generate a meaningful experience through a close contact with the wilderness.

Our Vision: Help to develop Chilean tourism in order to: deliver values to the society through the sport and outdoor life, create employment mainly in local communities and achieve a better environmental protection of the Chilean landscapes.

Our values: Balance, quality, kindness, team work, environmental sustainability, flexible jobs.
