'Aliwen', in the ancient Mapuche Language means ‘Tree of Great Dimensions’. Legend tells that the Machi (the spiritual healer or ‘shaman’ of the Mapuchi), joined with this sacred tree merging into one being, it was a mystic union that symbolized the connection between Man and Universe. At Aliwen we believe that when you travel, there is a magic encounter between the land and yourself which leads you to uncover the true values, experiences and beauty of life.

Gabriela has more than 20 years of experience organizing itineraries for Argentina. She has travelled extensively through Calafate, the Lake District, Puerto Madryn, Mendoza, the Northwest and Iguazu. She has also visited Antarctica, Chile and Brazil. She loves nothing better than the freedom of self-drive, and together with her husband has travelled thousands of kilometres within Argentina. She is especially fond of the country’s picture-postcard Lake District.
Carolina first fell in love with the landscape of Argentina whilst camping in some of it’s most remote regions; she loves the contact with nature gained from walking through these unspoilt areas. Holding a Masters degree in tourism from Spain she went on to work for a year in a UK based agency. Sixteen years ago, already working in the travel industry creating and managing itineraries for groups and incentives she met fellow Argentine Gabriela, and the seed was sown for Aliwen. She has travelled extensively through Calafate, the Lake District, Puerto Madryn, Cordoba, Mendoza, and Iguazu. She also visited Antarctica, Chile and Brazil. Her favourite destinations are the startlingly different but equally beautiful Mendoza and El Calafate.
Since she was a young girl Victoria has been obsessed with travelling so it was only natural she went on to study tourism at degree level going on to become the 1st member of the sales team at Aliwen. She has family in Calafate, where her passion for travel and love of nature was nurtured. It’s no surprise her favourite destinations are Calafate and El Chalten, although she has travelled throughout the country. She has been in the Northwest, in Iguazu, Esteros del Ibera, Puerto Madryn, Bariloche, Mendoza, San Luis, Cordoba, Entre Rios, the Lake Region, Ushuaia, the Ruta 3 and also to Antarctica. You can see why she is famously fabulous at designing itineraries for remote regions!
