    [Please respind to host in Spanish]

    We are a young family, composed by Juan (29), Jennifer (30) and our little baby Agustina (10.11.18) as well as our herd of sled dogs.
    Our home and business is in Lonquimay, a small mountain village located in the Andes mountain range in south central Chile, 30 km from the ski center Corralco.
    We have a small bar that we serve and a small team of sled dogs, which in the winter make tourism in the Chilean Andes.
    The village of Lonquimay has a wonderful landscape to walk, very close to the Lonquimay volcano, rivers, lakes and many hills to develop outdoor activities, Juan is also a guide, we do trekking, mountain biking and hiking.
