This is Oyikil
Our first horse ride expeditions across Patagonian ranches in 1999 were the starting point of our activities in the travel business. We rode along with our guests, and from those shared experiences, we learned what they valued most. After a couple of years, we opened our offices, added staff, expanded our services and became a DMC for the rest of Argentina. Our guests became more sophisticated and our businesses more complex. Now, 20 years later, as a full service DMC for Argentina, Chile and Uruguay, our list of clients includes the most renown agencies specialized in high-end experiential travel.
Along the way, we have nurtured and built strong partnerships with tour operators and travel advisors, looking for expertly curated, seamless itineraries to this majestic region of South America. Together with top brands and educational travel experts we ensure our itineraries are impeccable, cultured, and stimulating. Each of our tailor-made trips fosters the sense of discovery and respect for people’s traditions and culture. We consider it our duty to preserve the environment for future generations and to contribute to the region’s sustainable growth.
By the way, Oyikil means Condor in Tehuelche, a Patagonian native language.
