If you’re thinking of coming to Chile on either the Chile & Argentina Extravaganza or Chile 7 Volcanoes trips, then you’ll meet me.

I’m originally from Switzerland, a number of years ago I decided to travel around South America and when I got to Chile I never left. I now live near Pucon and Villarrica volcano with my family and am a fully certified Chilean mountain guide.

I met Phil, Snoworks Director, on his first visit to Villarrica in 2003.  Since then I’m delighted to have become a permanent fixture with Snoworks and their South American trips. Chile is an amazing place. You will love it! The diversity of the country is immense and the people are so friendly. The Southern Volcanoes are truly a sight to behold and that’s what inspired us to create the Chile 7 Volcanoes trip.

You can rest assured you are in very safe hands if you come to Chile – I know the Southern Volcanoes like the back of my hand. When I am not working with Snoworks I am involved with Amity Tours and I also work with the local guiding agency in Pucon. Villarrica volcano is in my back garden!

Hopefully I will meet you when you come to Chile.
