About Us

An idea conceived by a childhood surrounded by lakes, woods and volcanoes. A goal being encouraged by seeing our parents and grandparents to work hard for what we love.

Huella Andina is the result of almost 20 years of Andean exploration. A family business offering a professional service for adventure travel.

José Miguel, Sandra and Matías
operate several trips in national parks and wilderness areas, specializing in guided mountain expeditions to the major volcanoes in southern Chile: Osorno, Calbuco, Puyehue and Casa Blanca.

HAE was founded on october 2009 with the single dream about to live from what we do. With the idea of sharing with others the experiences that our backyard has made in us.

We use our experience traveling, climbing and mountaineering with our knowledge of our region and its people to develop experiences.

Thus our life in Southern Chile is defined by the close relationship it shares with the natural landscapes. The volcanoes and glaciers dominate the land, shape our geology and define our way of life. The simple act of think about climbing a volcano leads us to rediscovering ourselves in an adventure travel exploring its morphology, its history, its nature and the people who lives in it.

Because of we do what we love, we trust that each of our acts – as a company, guides or persons – will be developed with the best of us. It will be friendly, honest and respectful to our guest, to us and to whom is hosting our journey.
