“I was very impressed with the arrangements made by Chile Montana and all of your assistance. I would travel with you again, definitely, and would highly recommend you to others.”
-Ken K

“For the first visit to Chile for me, I got the basics that make me want to return for more, except Portillo. I was glad I skied there once but I won’t have to go back. I enjoyed Farellones and the surrounding resorts a whole lot more. And for all the help you provided, from answering our initial query to the proposal and modifications, we will gladly provide references for you, Pancho and ChileMonata. We never felt any of the attention to detail was missing”.
-Earl J

“We all think the Chile trip was fabulous, more than fulfilling our expectations thanks to the super efforts of you and Pancho. Your hospitality, arrangements, good humour and attention to detail made everything just great. Our heart felt thanks. I’d love to do it over again – and again.”
-Louise N

“Thanks ever so much for the great Chile experience. Memories to be cherished.”
-Richard K

“…Added bonuses of our trip included great views of the unfamiliar southern stars, the excellent Chilean wines, and it was fun to experience Chilean culture and lifestyle and to exercise our dubious Spanish. Best of all, we enjoyed excellent company and the superb organization, leadership and companionship provided by Pancho and Kathryn. Would I go again? In an instant – I’m already working on improving my Spanish.”
-Tom S

Atacama South Lipez Edelweiss CAI Milano

The 2012 summer was incredible rainy and snowy in the Chilean / Bolivian high plateau. We started in San Pedro de Atacama and did our best to cross the altiplano and reach the mountains and salt flats as planned but were forced to descend to the desert several times. It was an great opportunity to see this landscape in a quite different way: water and green everywhere, as well as lot of snow in the summits. Check out a few pictures of this memorable expedition!
