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 […]
The only way to explore the channels, fjords and islands of western Patagonia is by sea. This (southern) autumn we sailed in 25 days 1629 nautical miles (3017 km) from Ushuaia in Argentina to Puerto Montt in Chile with the S/Y Anne-Margaretha.
After the heavy rains this winter in the North of Chile an extraordinary blossoming of the Atacama Desert could be expected.
This picture gallery is a selection from our ten-day trip to the Aysén region of the Northern Chilean Patagonia between Christmas and New Year.

After we had circled Iceland by car already in 2010 we concentrated this time on some of the areas we had to skip like the highlands around Kerlingarfjöll and Landmannalaugar.

Have a look at some recent photospheres (360 degree x 180 degree panoramas) of the ESO Paranal Observatory featuring the Very Large Telescope (VLT) at day and night. In particular, don’t miss to have a look around the winter sky with the Milkyway stretching across the firmament at the beginning of the night. The heart of […]

We started our hike at 1650m – just above the clouds with the first spectacular panoramic views to the West to the Pacific ocean and to Cerro La Campana sticking its […]
I have added some panorama shots from the Antarctica, Spitsbergen, Southwest USA and the Pumalín Park tours. They are shown on dedicated pages using a panorama viewer that allows panning and zooming. The 360-degree panorama of the Chaitén Volcano is a 64 Megapixel image and provides high-resolution views. Have fun!
