Our Partners in South America

Organising adventure tours in South America requires considerable experience and a network of local contacts across the continent.

Members and associated partners of the Andean Trails team you are likely to come into contact with on the ground are Tullio and Jesus in Peru  – in Lima and Cusco, respectively. Our expert local guide in Huaraz is Rodolfo, UIAGM qualified. For community tourism we work with Alex and Valentin, in the Amazon it’s Maria Esther.

In Argentina, we  work in conjunction with many local partner companies that handle the operational side of the tours: including Zoe, Gabriel, Pablo, Oscar and Luis. In Bolivia, we have Osvaldo our expert mountain guide, and Scarlet, Julia and Jaira on the ground sorting out logistics. In Chile we have a number of expert local partners, including Jenny, Frank, Fernando, Koen and Ernesto.

In Ecuador and on The Galapagos Islands we work together with a number of local experts including the very knowledgeable Emma, Lucero, Paulina, Rodolfo and Javier.

These are but a few of the local companies and local guides we work with. We will be adding more and more of our lovely staff to this page, so check back for more!

Jaira – how and why did you start to work in Adventure Tourism? 

Twenty nine years ago my parents started this company of adventure and solidarity-based tourism. The motivation was for a very simple reasons; both my parents are children of the former dictatorship and both are socialists. Their ideas were forged in the liberal and hippie movement of the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s. The company aimed to unite the private, indigenous communities and environmental sectors by following responsible ethical and cultural codes.

As pioneers in community tourism and ecotourism, we bring comfort to the adventure traveller; Bolivia – incredibly beautiful, adventurous and perfect in all its chaos.

People who travel here love the Bolivian people, and finding places where the hand of man has not taken control.

Alberto – what is your motivation at the time to work in Adventure Tourism? 

My principal motivation in adventure travel is to challenge the mind and body in the great outdoors.

This is the most exciting thing – swimming on the beach, trekking and climbing in the Andes, exploring the jungle, sailing rivers or cycling.

Then sharing these emotions with people who want to know the country where I was born and that I love – Peru!

Osvaldo – what would you recommend Andean Trails clients to do and to visit in Bolivia?

Being specialised in mountaineering, I would personally recommend starting discovering Bolivia with a visit to the Lake Titicaca area.

This spot combines interesting cultures and scenery, ideal for those that want to sample a slice of the history of Bolivia.

Next, the Condoriri area, which features snow-capped peaks ideal for people who don’t have much climbing experience but at the same time want to get up close to glaciers.
