Dayana Cañón

CEO & Founder

The appreciation for nature, the search for new adventures together with the attachment to social issues has led me to what I am and what I want today.

My name is Dayana Cañón and I am an Expeditions and Ecotourism Engineer by profession with a diploma in Operations and Logistics Management. Kayaker, Packrafter and water lover. With experience in diverse and varied tourist and scientific expeditions covering Patagonia, insular Chile and Antarctica.

Collaborator and volunteer in different action groups for climate protection, gender equity and social equality.

And today, after years of searching, I find myself and understand what I want to give to the world. Today, together with the pillars that I am passionate about, I am positioning myself with Patagónica to aspire to be a company with meaning, a better company for the world.

Luke Hotto

My name is Luke, I am originally from Colorado and arrived in Chile in 2015 where I fell in love with the nature of a place called Patagonia.

I studied plant microbiology, viticulture and enology in the United States and my biggest hobbies are outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking and fishing, an activity in which I specialize and practice for over 25 years.

I love to show people the importance of nature and how to live in symbiosis with the planet. Today I am part of Patagónica Explorer with the objective of sharing, teaching and delivering the diverse perspectives of the value that nature has, from the micro like fungi or bacteria to the macro like big whales.
