Natalia Canónico

Born and raised in the amazing Buenos Aires city of Argentina, I've always loved to travel, visit new places, and experience the richness of cultural exchange.

Loving languages, I've studied English, French, and Italian. I've been working for many years as a professional guide showing off the beauty of my country to travelers from all over the world. I am now working as a travel consultant and trip designer for travelers looking for a real experience, tailor-made itineraries, and personalized service.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I specialize in designing custom trips for clients who want a real local experience and a unique trip around Argentina and Chile. Together, we can plan a vacation that suits your tastes and needs."

How did you get involved in travel?

"My curiosity to discover new places, cultures and my love for nature has led me to the travel industry. Many years ago I decided to study tourism as a career. From that moment until now, I still love bringing people together and encourage everybody to explore the world."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"It is so difficult to choose just one… But I would say that visiting the Argentinean Patagonia by car was something truly amazing. The variety of landscapes, the mountains, the forest, the lakes, the ocean… and getting to the "end of the world". Experience the local flavor of the small communities living so far away from one from each other was also something really unforgettable."

Fabulous Trip to Beautiful Patagonia!

My husband I just returned from an extended trip to Argentina which included a 12-day excursion to Patagonia. We decided at the last minute to take this trip and our specialist, Natalia, with whom we worked on a previous trip to Argentina, did a fabulous job of putting together our trip considering it was prime time and availability was an issue. From the locations of our hotels, to the excursions, and, importantly, our guides and drivers, we have always found that Kimkim provides us with a quality, safe, and worry-free trip. Thank you to Natalia and Kimkim for another great trip!

This was a fantastic trip to Patagonia and KimKim/Natalia did an excellent job in putting the itinerary together. Keeping in mind that you are visiting some of the most remote places in the world the quality of tbe experiences was very good - hotels, transfers, guides, restaurants. Best guide goes to Sonia in Ushuaia who was a fund of information and a great companion for 2 days. Best transfer goes to Patricia who brought us from El Calafate to El Chalten and back 3 days later. Best restaurant goes to Isabela’s in El Calafate where you much try one of their Plough/Disco dishes. Best hotel setting is a top gh call but was probably the Los Cauquennes in Ushuaia overlooking the Beagle Channel. Best Hotel was the Noi Hotel in Santiago - they even gave us a late checkout room gratis as we toured the city. Their rooms, breakfast and service were all excellent. Patagonia is an amazing part of the world. Comparing things to do is difficult. I will give my Top 3 to Torres del Paine Base, Mount FitzRoy/Chalten and Pietro Moreno Glacier. Every site is stunning. Some of the hikes are tough especially the last mile or two to the top - but the reward of seeing the spectacular Mountain views was always worth the effort. You don’t always need a guide especially those hikes where it is more about the experience of reaching that final destination. We found our local costs cheap especially in Argentina - you could have a very nice dinner including drinks, taxes and tip for less than $25 per person. Patagonia may be the end of the world but it is a view of what it was like when it all started. If you have the opportunity you will not be disappointed.

Lovely quiet setting. This is an expensive spot but well worth is for us at the end of our month in Argentina. Good location for visiting surrounding wineries. There were some things missing in the rooms that you would expect in a luxury hotel (coffee maker, body lotion) Food was excellent and the staff super helpful.

Natalia also arranged one of the best experiences in my lifetime, horseback riding in the middle of a remote island in Patagonia, something I know we would have never been able to find on our own. I have told anyone who is interested in visiting Argentina they must use Natalia and I hope we get the opportunity to return and work with her again!

The trip was designed perfectly for us - with Natalia creating a curated adventure - addressing areas we wanted to see and things we wanted to do. All the guides were great - Jessica Zimmerman in BA, Laura in Iguazu and Jorge in Salta. Each of them worked well with our family (adults and a 14 and 17 year old). Would highly recommend this team to anyone considering a trip to Argentina
