My friend and I hatched a scheme to meet in Santiago for a long weekend (I live in Boston, he lives in London) and we both LOVE to hike. We needed an adventure that we could arrange remotely and that did not require our bringing a bunch of gear. Nicolas and the team at Coigue DELIVERED! We had an absolutely wonderful overnight hike to the Paloma Glacier, complete with terrific meals, multiple condor sightings, incredible star gazing, and every detail taken care of for us - from pre-trip emails explaining what we needed to bring, to prompt pick up at our hotel, to informative, genuine and engaging conversation during the hike itself - 20 miles in two days! I cannot say enough about the entire experience - I would book another adventure with Coigue in a heartbeat (and plan to if I return to Chile any time soon). It's all about the experience (the mountains themselves haven't changed much in 100 million years or so) and Coigue knows how to do it right...

We organised this hike for two of us. Nicolas communicated with us by email, recommended the hike and made all necessary arrangements. He met us at our hotel on time and drove us to the base of the Yerba Loca river and into the Park where we met the horsemen who transported all our kit (tents, sleeping bags, food etc which Nicolas had organised) to the top of the mountain. The hike was wonderful, and we were blessed with amazing weather. We camped out at 3000m under amazing stars after a hearty meal cooked by Nicolas. Very cold but we were well protected in our sleeping bags. The next morning after a lovely hot breakfast we climbed another 600m to the glacier and then made our way back down meeting the horses at the bottom. Amazing mountain views, wonderful 30km hike, condors, glaciers, waterfall, good food, lots of local information and details from Nicolas. What is not to like. A huge success. Highly recommended (and not that hard a hike - 2 50 somethings were knackered at the end but still alive!).

We went on a private walk to the Morado Laguna, but it was so much more than just a walk, enjoyable though that was, with spectacular scenery. Nicholas went over and above to make sure this was a special experience. My husband is into alpine plants, and Nicholas was able to show him all the examples en route. We were able to appreciate the walk so much more than if we'd gone on our own, and it was a treat to have someone drive us the two hours each way. He even gave us extra advice afterwards on where to go when we are in the Chilean Lake District. We felt we'd made a friend. Would highly recommend
