Who are we?
Daniel Seeliger, Silvina Verdun, their son Zen and, during their 17 years in the valley, an abundance of good friends and family who have come together to build the Refugio Cochamó community. This wonderful group of nature lovers, climbers, hikers, guides, horseman, carpenters, cooks, environmentalists, etc. has helped in so many ways, including this website.
We have had many late-night conversations among-st us, locals and guests about the valley and the direction its heading. Smaller details sometimes varied in opinion, but our shared vision has always been and continues to be that Cochamó Valley and its surrounding are a place to share for all, but at the same time acknowledging our impact, and the continuous search to find the best balance to minimize our footprint for those living in, working at or just visiting the Cochamó Valley.
One way we support the valley, and one way you can, too.
