I'm Lucas Jacobson, owner/operator of Outside-Patagonia based in Bariloche, Argentina.
Thanks for visiting the website.
If you're interested, here's a bit about me.
I was born in a very remote area of northern Argentina which gave me a special appreciation for the outdoors. When I was 16 my family moved south, closer to the mountains, and I started to climb in the Andes. I've been mountaineering – trekking and climbing – ever since.
I've traveled and climbed throughout Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, the USA, Canada and Europe. I spent two summer seasons working in Aosta, Italy where I completed numerous ascents and climbing on the area.
At some point in my younger years, my career path steered me to the telecommunications industry, scaling towers and fixing cellular systems. But the mountains were never far away and I eventually returned to my roots and become a mountain guide since 2001.
In the winter I focus on being a ski guide around the mountain range and also the volcanoes, this is how I spend part of my time on the winter seasons as well as teaching backcountry ski and avalanche awareness courses.
Be part of the “safety crew” at some TV shows are part of my schedulle around the year as well us the photo trips and “overlands” in Patagonia.

- Full UIAGM mountain guide (International Federation of Mountain Guide Association)
- Member of the commite of AAGM
- High mountain guide AAGM (Argentinian Asociation of Mountain Guides)

The languages I am fluent are English, Italian and Spanis
