Once in your lifetime – experience the lifestyle of a real Chilean Cowboy Real adventure– Horseback trekking in the Andes of Chile I wake up at daybreak to the smell of burning wood from the campfire. Our Gaucho Danilo has been awake for a long time and has already set a fire with the remaining wood, which is now crackling nicely. It smells of freedom, from my sleeping bag I spy him preparing a maté tea by refilling the small maté pot with boiling water. By now I am fully awake, the daybreak and the good smell make me want to get up. Today we will bring all 40 horses with their 20 foals furth ..read more

Facebook Instagram How to plan your trekking tour in Chile – In Chile there is no comprehensive rescue system, the distances are often enormous and the cell phone network is not well developed either. Therefore, any hiking trip must be planned well in advance and very well. There are many hiking routes with tracks and descriptions on the web. However, planning your own route with them is not possible in most cases. In addition, the quality of the maps, the handling and the view of the different applications varies a lot. It is worth comparing them. Satellite image Smaller terrain details ca ..read more

Chile is a land of extremes. The narrow South American country has some of the world’s most diverse and pristine landscapes – it’s a nature lover’s dream.

On four-wheel-drive roads to Chile’s volcanic giants Ruta Andina Adventure Road – In Chile, the paved Ruta 5 runs from north of Arica to Puerto Montt. To the south, the Carretera Austral, well known by tourists, follows and ends in the great fjords and the mighty inland ice. Scenically a delight and due to the construction of roads in increasingly better condition, it gradually loses its adventurous character. Its northern counterpart, the Andean Route, on the other hand, is still more adventure than road. It connects the tourist magnet of San Pedro de Atacama by dusty tracks along the Bolivia ..read more

When we were in Patagonia for the last time in 2017 in search of pumas, we had a fantastic time but a puma never stepped in front of our lens. We are now on our way again to the Torres del Paine National Park, from countless reports we know that the puma population there has virtually exploded. Will we have more luck this time, will we finally be able to take some great pictures of the so shy wild cats? To be on the safe side, we hired our local guide again and were glad that a biologist joined our small group. Life of the Pumas Pumas are the fourth largest cat species, but despite their state ..read more
