About us
Baguales Group is not just a company, it is a lifestyle. An encounter with nature, riding with friends through Patagonia, looking for livestock, or exploring by kayak. We consider it a privilege to lead a life away from the bustle and stress of big cities. And it makes us happy to help each of our clients create an unforgettable journey. Far from the hoards of tourists, we enjoy taking you to places where others do not venture.
Baguales Group was created in 2002 by Argentine Juan Pablo Alvarez Solay. Raised in Argentine Patagonia, Juan Pablo spent many years exploring the lesser known corners of the region. This lover of adventure and the mountains guides horseback riding, kayaking and fishing tours. He participates regularly in first aid courses and is also licensed for kayak rescue. Most of Baguales Group’s horseback riding, kayaking and fishing trips are led by him personally.
Regina Husmann has been a member of the company since 2008. In 2005, she arrived to Patagonia for the first time fell in love with the landscape at the end of the world. Regina especially enjoyed the “off the beaten track” tours led by Baguales Group, which lured her back to Patagonia. Passionate about marvelous landscapes and the simple life, she left her job as a financial consultant at a private bank in Switzerland and started to travel throughout South America, before deciding to settle down and live in Puerto Natales. Regina gladly accepted Juan Pablo’s offer to join the Baguales Group family, and since then she happily helps you organize and plan your trips to the region.
Meet our friends and guides, who are key to the success of our excursions. Without them we could not create such original adventure programs of the caliber we wish to provide you.
