I'm an avid biker,kayaker, runner and skier, annually participates in the most challenging race in Patagonia: Chapelco's Tetrathlon. As the lodge manager of our estancia, I work hand in hand with Santiago Uriburu — our head guide — an expert horseman, passionate about riding, playing polo, and breeding horses.
