Hi, we 're Jamie and Manuel.
Our story started on the other side of the world, in Canada, where Jamie was born and, as luck would have it, where Manuel, a Patagonian mountain guide, had traveled on a working holiday visa.
We met by chance and fell in love over our shared passion for nature, adventure, and travel.
We spent our first year together traveling through the mountains in Canada, getting to know the tourism and adventure industry there. Now we are back in Manuel's native Patagonia, using the lessons we learned in Canada to offer the highest quality tours in Punta Arenas.
We started Borealis Adventures in 2018 in order to follow our dream of helping share our beautiful Patagonia with the world. In our tours, we want people to have an unforgettable, worry free experience and have fun doing it.
We bring to the company Manuel's 10 years of experience in professional guiding here in Chilean Patagonia, Jamie's background in science communications and event coordinating in Canada, and a whole lot of love for all things Patagonia.
Our tours combine quality information about the geography, history, anthropology, ecology, and culture of the region along with unforgettable activities and the chance to try out delicious (occasionally exotic) food offerings typical of the region.
We are dedicated to giving our customers a unique and comfortable experience, as well as sharing quality information about this little piece of the world that we love so dearly.
We hope to see you soon on one of our tours through Chilean Patagonia! If you have any questions about Patagonia, Punta Arenas, our tours, or anything else, we love answering questions. Drop us a line and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
