    Description

    We´re a tourist company, leading different types of outdoor activities into the mountains in Patagonia-Chile, like trekking, climbing, horseback-riding, fly fishing, and others.
    Our installations (hosteria, cabins, camping and trails) are located inside of the Puyehue National Park, Lake District, surrounded for an amazing landscape next to the border with Argentina (140 km from Bariloche) at the feet of Puyehue Volcano.
    We work hard for a sustainable development of the area, with a friendly multilingual staff and we are offering the possibility to travelers and volunteers to help us in our daily duties and share the experience to interact with the culture of the country.
    About the conditions, we provide the accommodation. There´s a house for the helpers, hot water, and we give meals at the restaurante in our facilities.
    - The house of volunteers, is a share cabin with other people (practical students and guides) there´s no private room.
    - Lunch is included.
    - We cook normal food (cereals, garlic, onion, and everything), if someone has a specific diet they must bring their own meals and prepare it by themselves.
