After our failed attempt to visit Chiloé island during the pandemic in 2020 we gave it another try in December 2021. This time we had no problems to reach the island and to move into our El Palafito cabin which is beautifully located at the entrance of the Paildad sound. The terrace of the cabin […]
Road trip to Visviri
We took the opportunity of the flowering desert in October 2021 for a long 5827km road trip to the North of Chile. After visiting our friends in El Molle we enjoyed the colours of the flowers between Huasco, Bahía Inglesa and Copiapó. Not as impressive as during the previous event in 2017 – but still […]
Visit to Conguillío National Park in Winter
Another trip to one of our favourite parks in Chile, the Conguillío National Park – but this time for the first time in winter. We stayed again at the Sendas Lodge Conguillío – this time in the Volcano Llaima cabin. It snowed several times during this week in August 2021 turning the Araucaria forest and the Conguillío lake into […]
Trip to Llanquihue
This trip in October 2020 was our first opportunity to escape from Santiago during the COVID-19 pandemic. We originally had planned to stay on the island of Chiloé. But the island was still protected by a sanitary barrier and therefore unreachable for us. Instead we spent the week at the Llanquihue lake. Our Rucamalen cabin […]
Visit to Conguillío National Park
The Conguillío National Park is one of our favourites in Chile. We have been visiting it many times, the last time just after New Year this year. We stayed again at the Sendas Lodge Conguillío – this time in the Tolhuaca cabin beautifully located in the middle of an Araucaria forest.
Puma tracking in Torres del Paine
After more than 25 years of travelling in Chile and not having seen a single puma, we decided to join a puma-tracking expedition in the Torres del Paine National Park and the adjacent Estancia Goic in the Chilean Patagonia known to host the largest population of pumas in South America.
Christmas and New Year in the Araucanía region
This year we spent Christmas in the Conguillío National Park and New Year in the Huerquehue National Park in the Araucanía region in the South of Chile. In both places we staid in a cabin right in the park. This allowed us to extensively explore both parks by foot and car while enjoying the comfort […]

After the heavy rains this winter in the North of Chile an extraordinary blossoming of the Atacama Desert could be expected.
