Jose Argento

Jose Argento grew up in a tiny farming community in Argentina and developed a deep passion for nature at a young age. After completing his degree in Tourism, he moved to Patagonia, where he began working as a mountain guide. For the last 10 years, he has guided Patagonia journeys for half the year, then spent the other half of the year in other parts of the world training horses and practicing polo. Jose has lived and traveled in many places, from New Zealand to Germany, and is fluent in English, Italian, and of course Spanish. “Working as a Trip Leader is the best job I can imagine. It gets me outdoors, in touch with people, and in touch with nature, and it’s such a pleasure to see trip members enjoy South America’s amazing environments.”
