Esteban Cardieri



Esteban is the “born & raised” local from Bariloche in our team. He grew up paddling the lakes and rivers of the regions which was his play ground till it became his work place!
Esteban started his guiding experience on White Water Rafting trips and slowly moved towards kayak-touring. He is our Lead Guide in this discipline and also owns all the equipment and logistics.
After many years paddling in Bariloche area, Esteban became an Outdoor Educator for North Carolina Outward Bound School leading expeditions and courses for them at the Outer Banks in the U.S.A.
As part as his passion for teaching he also got certified as a Level 3 Instructor at the American Canoe Association (ACA 3) which gave him new skills on coaching people on the water.
Apart from his field base work, Esteban has been teaching Wilderness First Aid courses for a local institute here in Bariloche for the last five years.
During the off-season Esteban enjoys going on rock climbing road trips with Lark, his American girlfriend, exploring fun walls and camping out under starry skies.
