We had planned our trip to the Lofoten already for 2020. But due to the pandemic it had to be postponed twice. In 2022 it finally happened. We first drove some 850 km by car from Tromsø via Narvik to Bodø and then sailed 315 nautical miles (or 585 km) with the S/Y Anne-Margaretha from […]
Trip to Chiloé and Puelo
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 Curarrehue
We spent a relaxing week in February 2021 at the Pu Am Eco Lodge near Curarrehue. We enjoyed several hikes in the nearby Villarica National Park and were impressed by the Malalco waterfall.
Long weekend in Pupuya
We escaped from Santiago for a long weekend in November 2020 to Pupuya at the Chilean coast. We enjoyed our Vista Hermosa cabin, long beach walks, watching the kite surfers and the hot tub with ocean view afterwards. On the way home we stopped in La Boca near Navidad.
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 […]
Trip to Mendoza
In February 2020 we crossed the Andes by car to meet friends from Germany in Mendoza, Argentina. We stayed in the beautiful Casa Sur downtown Mendoza. Our trip included visits to the Bodega Tapiz vineyard and two excursions: a hike to the Confluencia basecamp of the Aconcagua at an altitude of 3400m and a visit […]
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.
