Oliver Widdaker

The founder of Wechu tours and main guide is a very keen hiker, rock climber, mountaineer, trail runner and mountain biker.

"At 36 years old I am physically very active and extremely passionate about the outdoors. I have setup Wechu tours to share this passion with other visitors to Chile, a place with a still developing tourist industry."

He grew up in the mountains of the UK, and has explored many of the mountains of England, Wales, Scotland and the alps, close to 25 years of experience in total.

1 year ago he moved to Chile and has been exploring the extensive mountains surrounding Santiago.

Oliver worked in the location Film and TV industry for many years and therefore has much experience in planning, logistics, thinking on the spot, people skills, and most important of all, a cool head under pressure.

In short you will be in good hands.


"I have climbed 3-4 mountains per week in the last year in Santiago whilst studying Spanish and working as a guide, in this time I have gained a very good feel for the area and know the routes I am offering very well indeed. I am always excited to share the my experience with others"
