It's a beautiful valley, but the energy has something extra. I loved it. The people were even nicer than other Chileans. I'd definitely go back one day if I could.

Good luck with regards to your goal. It is possible to find a company that may help, but with your time constraints expect to pay a premium. Safe travels!
