For our guests

Personable hands-on service is key

Guests will either be talking to the business owner directly, or an attentive guide, member of a small multidisciplinary team.

People from all over the world have enjoyed our services, mostly from the USA and EU, but also from UK, Brazil and Mexico. We have activities for all ages, though our clients have been mainly 30 to 60 years old: solo, couples, friends and families.

We have become pretty good at picnicking healthy and energetic food; people have asked for vegan, gluten-free and non-diary; we make sure it is fresh and tasty.

“Reasons to choose this company: professional yet really personable service with quick responses to emails, informative and great website, brilliant treks that are incredibly only available with Coigüe Expeditions.
Decision made ;) ”

Testimonials

Rated excellent on TripAdvisor

“Nicolás and Mauro of Coigüe Expeditions were fantastic guides, and the hike to the summit of El Pintor was the highlight of my trip to Chile. From beginning to end, the trip was perfect! First of all, the email communication was prompt and informative. They picked me up at my hotel, and then, we picked up one other guest so two guides and two guests! We had a great conversation during the hike, and they shared their love of nature and hiking in Chile with us.”

Leave No Trace

Awakening our senses with nature wonders

In the end we will conserve only what we appreciate, and we appreciate only what we feel related to us. We strive to awaken a sense of joy for being part of nature through an active process in which knowledge, contact and contemplation will lead visitors to their own findings.

When kids, in the Scout Group Pucalán, we learned the importance of minimizing risk and environmental impact during our outdoor activities. Now we share and promote Leave No Trace principles with the team of guides, who are also certified wilderness first responders.
