    Volunteering Season September 2021- April 2022 in Patagonia, Aysén region, Chile
    We are a small establishment (accommodation, breakfasts and meals) located 6 hours south of Coyhaique, 10 km from the Carretera Austral and 40 km from the nearest town. In the place there is no public locomotion.
    In the middle of a pristine nature, with limited internet (depending on the signal of the day), electricity through solar panels (limited to the sun of the day), meltwater (without fluoride or toxic additives), and zero electromagnetic pollution.
    We have only 4 domes for a maximum of 10 people in total, some days full and others empty, so it is not a 24/7 volunteer. Everything in these areas is taken with calm, positive attitude and relaxation. There will be a lot of time to be in contact only with nature.
    Duties include dome and lodge tidying / cleaning, kitchen and dining room, reception and guest care, along with entertaining outdoor field duties.
    We want to incorporate one or two more people from mid-September 2021 (Low Season), who will be learning together with the Administrator, with the aim that in November / December a couple more members can be added to the team. High season in these areas is from December to March, all depending on the uncertainty surrounding the bug.
    Full team no more than 4 people.

    It offers:
    Accommodation and meals + a% of sales (depending on the evolution of this season) We place emphasis on the applicants who do not rely on this percentage, because if the current measures that directly affect this item continue, we may have 0 clients.
    If you like Nature, disconnection and isolation, this is for you!
    We want to incorporate into our team a flexible person, capable of finding solutions to everyday issues and not only loves managing a small tourism establishment, but also field work. Tolerance and good treatment with others are essential.
    Please nominate people who see themselves in the future living in places like these, full of nature and freedom.
    Have no problem getting your hands dirty with mud.
    We are prioritizing unvaccinated applicants (for the health of the team and our guests).
    Basic English.

    We are located in Northern Patagonia. On the shore of Baker River and just 15 kms from Patagonia National Park (Parque Chacabuco).
    Native flora and fauna, you might spot foxes, condors, guanacos, and even, huemules (endangered native deer). You will wake up in the company of Chucao birds, gold finches, woodpeckers, and barn swallows, and salmon fish along the shore.
    We also make use of solar power through solar panels, which have a non-intrusive design that blends in with its surroundings.

    En medio de una naturaleza prístina, con internet limitado (dependiendo de la señal del día), electricidad mediante paneles solares (limitada al sol del día), aguas de deshielo (sin flúor ni tóxicos aditivos), y cero contaminación electromagnética.
    Contamos con solo 4 domos para un máximo de 10 personas en total, algunos días llenos y otros vacíos, por lo que no es un voluntariado 24/7. Todo en estas zonas se toma con tranquilidad, actitud positiva y relajo. Habrá mucho tiempo para estar en contacto solo con la naturaleza.

    Queremos incorporar una o dos personas más a partir de mediados de Septiembre 2021 (Temporada Baja), quien/es estará aprendiendo junto al Administrador, con el objetivo que en Noviembre/Diciembre se pueda anexar un par de integrantes más al equipo. La temporada Alta en estas zonas es de Diciembre a Marzo, todo dependiendo de la incertidumbre en torno al bicho.
    Equipo completo no más de 4 personas.

    Se ofrece:
    Alojamiento y comidas + un % de ventas (dependiendo la evolución de la presente temporada) Ponemos énfasis a la/s postulantes que no se basen en dicho porcentaje, pues de continuar las medidas actuales que afectan directamente este rubro, puede que tengamos 0 clientes.
    Si te gusta la Naturaleza, desconexión y aislamiento, esto es para ti ¡!
    Queremos incorporar a nuestro equipo una persona flexible, capaz de buscar soluciones a temas cotidianos y no solo ame lo referente a administrar un establecimiento de turismo pequeño, sino también labores de campo. La tolerancia y el buen trato con los demás son primordiales.
    Por favor postular personas que se vean a futuro viviendo en lugares como estos, llenos de naturaleza y libertad.
    No tenga problemas en ensuciarse las manos con barro.
