Who we are

We met right here, in the desert, in one of the largest gorges in Chile for the practice of sport climbing. From that moment we began to live San Pedro de Atacama in a different way. Together we have grown in syntony with the colors and beauty of this place, sometimes unpredictable .

From that moment CHUCARO was born. After years of enjoying and exploring the desert through the activities we are most passionate about, we decided that it was time to be consistent with our lifestyle and share all these experiences with those who seek our ideals.

Live the desert, breathe each ray of sunshine and hear the fullness of its tranquility. To feel with friends the emotion of a summit and the adrenaline of a first flight. Simply blend in with the landscape in the middle of endless trails.

We are two friends passionate about the mountains, the rivers, the dryness, the orange sunsets and the starry nights of this extreme place and away from everything that for many is normal. We seek to genuinely capture the feeling of living in this desert. We invite you to enjoy and share new experiences with our team!
