Good performance and work environment is reflected in our client's planning and excursions.

  • Our Mission


    We are always seeking to develop and improve tourism in local communities and in remote zones with lower tourism levels. We believe in the strength that tourism can exert to protect and continue to protect areas rich in natural resources and that can be seen at risk by the interest of other industries. We want to take responsibility for recovering original identity and important traditions that have been lost over time.

  • Local Products


    The integration of communities and local products are one of the most important focal points for us. We go to great lengths to integrate these elements into each of our services. We make sure to respect the people and places we visit.

OUR STORY

It all began when Juan Pastor and Christian led field trips at a language school for foreign students in Santiago. The two of them shared very similar interests and went to great effort to design “tailor-made” trips for students while visiting Chile. In 2011,  their company was formed and they began to focus on the tourism concepts they were developing to become a different company. The most iconic aspect of it was eco-friendly tourism; a way of defining responsibility for the environment and its importance in human relationships. This was initially geared toward small groups and sought to achieve a familiar atmosphere on each trip. Some time later, they were joined by Joaquín, who shared the same enthusiasm for outdoor sports, music, cultural traditions and a sense of humor.

They began to develop different types of trips, starting with one-day tours right up to expeditions lasting over a week. With time, more and more students came to enjoy the team’s organization and charismatic style. The number of people interested in taking trips with Ecochile grew, and more than one group has even returned to Chile to visit other destinations.

Today, the team has grown and established itself as one big family at work. Its vision and way of delivering tourism is a fundamental and transcendental key that has been shared by everyone who founded – and form part of – this unique group.
