Explorer & founder
Dom has gazed down on most of South America from a climber’s perspective, from bouldering in Bolivia to sport climbing in Venezuela. He is a qualified SPSA climbing instructor, mountain bike guide and first aider.
But, despite climbing all over the world, from the sea cliffs of Malaysia to the high mountains of Kashmir, all roads kept leading back to Argentina.
All this time in the wildnerness has made him a fountain of knowledge about the South American natural world, particularly its birdlife. He has worked at a research station monitoring bird migration in Costa Rica.
He is has won an award from National Geographic Society for his images of Argentina's landscapes and cowboys, but is in no way as talented a lensman as his brother, so is currently some way entrenched in the slow and tortuous process of writing a book about Patagonia.
And a few of our local guides...
An Englishman living in Chile's prime wine region, Charles owns a vineyard there, but he still comes over the border especially to take you round some of Mendoza's finest bodegas. He could teach the Argentine's a thing or two about wine (and usually does...).
A Dutch emigre in the true Patagonian style, Arianne lives in a tiny village in the Lakes. She and her horses will take you into some of the wildest mountain country in the Andes.
