About Madre Roca Patagonia
We are an adventure tourism company based out of Puerto Natales, in southern Patagonia, Chile. We offer private excursions and expeditions around the region. Madre Roca was born out of an effort to expand tourism horizons in Patagonia. Its founders, Claire and Felipe, believe that the tourism industry has been detrimental to the environment in Torres del Paine National Park, due to the lack of environment friendly infrastructures, but also the lack of options accessible to the fast-growing number of travelers. Claire and Felipe are both certified guides with much experience in the region. We strive to deliver to our guests a different and authentic experience, far from the peak-season crowds. Madre Roca distinguishes itself for prioritizing sustainable practices, working with small local companies, in a plastic-free environment, and fomenting a close and unique contact with nature.

My wife and I spent a week at Ecocamp Patagonia and had the great fortune to have Felipe as our guide exploring the Grey Glacier and Lazo Weber. Not only did we go on some of the best hikes and see some of the most extraordinary nature we've ever experienced, but we learned so much about Chilean culture, history and politics, and the geology of Torres del Paine (Felipe is a geologist by training). We were able to practice our Spanish with Felipe for hours on end and Felipe taught us many Chilenismos that made us feel like locals in no time. Felipe is "la raja" (if you don't know what that means you'll have to book a trip with Felipe) and we couldn't imagine a better introduction to Patagonia.

Gerardo! Thanks a lot for your review! We had an amazing day in Torres del Paine and in the off the beaten areas. Next time we will hike Cerro Paine! Until we meet again! Felipe.

I traveled to Torres del Paine National Park from New York to spend a week hiking. Claire was an exceptional guide with a sharp sense of humour and thorough knowledge of the park. She guided me along the W trek as well as along numerous hidden beauties of the park -- away from the main trails. Claire has a truly beautiful soul. She made my experience unforgettable and I will forever cherish the memories.

I had the chance to travel to Patagonia last year. We started our trip in Argentina with our main Guide Rodrigo Flores Solovera. We then travelled in to Chile for our first weeks W trek on arrival at Eco camp we met our Chillan Guide Claire Hourticq from Madre Roca Patagonia. This Lady along with Rod made this part of the trip so GOOD. Claire new every answer to every question I had and her knowledge of this part of the world was second to no one. I wish Madre Roca Patagonia all the best after these difficult times and I hope we will see you again.

Thank you Paul for your kind words and support. I am lucky to do the work I do and get to meet incredible people, including you and your wonderful Iwona. Thank you for the great times, and for the heavy metal CDs you sent to Felipe's house. He was so happy to receive them. Hope to be able to come to England to visit soon. Un abrazo! Claire

If you’re going to hike in Chile be it the Torres del Paine or a road less travelled then let Claire show you the way! She is safe, knowledgeable and charming. Young but highly experienced. A smile even when the rain comes down and the wind blows (which it will do, this is Patagonia after all). So worth the effort. The best hiking country in the world.
