Naldy Ruiz Almonacid
Co-Founder Patagonia Viajes
I studied tourism to work specifically in Patagonia. Since I was a child I loved this place, especially the cold and the glaciers. When I finished my studies, I didn’t doubt it for a second and I came directly from Puerto Montt to Puerto Natales, to fulfill my dream.
During this period I founded Patagonia Viajes, because I want that, people from all over the world can have the chance to experience at least for a few days, how nice it is to live at the end of the world.
During the last time I met people who, like me, motivated by tourism and with the strength of youth, formed alliances and expanded our agency to the 4 main destinations in Chile. This way, travelers and tourists not only can have the chance to experience Patagonia, but also discover the most mystical corners of my country.

Executive Manager Rapa Nui
I am a Geography and about 5 years ago I left Rio de Janeiro to live in the beautiful Chilean Patagonia. I started to work as a tourist guide in Torres del Paine. One day I interacted with my neighbor for the first time, she presented me the idea of her project “Patagonia Viajes” in which, I offered my help, since I had experience in trekking in Torres del Paine.
At this moment I am the Executive Director of Rapa Nui and also i’m in charge of the circuits in the National Parks. I like mountain and diving, so my work generates me fullness and immense happines.

I Arrived to Patagonia Travel by an a unexpected reason, I started a 6 month journey through the Chilean Patagonia. During this period I met Naldy and I joined this wonderful project. She proposed me to be in charge of the Chilean center zone destination and the truth is that i didn’t doubt it, not even a moment, it fell like finger ring, since I am born, bred and spoiled in Santiago.
What I like about this destination is the contrast of the city and the closeness that it has with nature. The comfort of the immediate and at the same time the possibility of relaxing with friends in a good bar or restaurant. Over time I found in tourism a way of living that accommodates me and I am passion about it.
