Video from Torres del Paine in Patagonia, Chile

#104_tdp2Unfortunately, my Notebook is neither fixed nor replaced, leaving me unable to edit the new set of pictures from Uruguay. Fortunately though, I had this video already done and just put it online for the public. Join me in my motion pictures through the amazing Torres del Paine W-trek in Chile’s Patagonia, probably one of the best hikes our planet has to offer… Read the rest of this entry »

Video from Cabo Froward, Chile

#101_capofroward

Capo Froward is the most southern point of mainland South America and it requires good planning for the river crossings during low tide to reach it. Some blogger described that you should be a “hardcore trekking, camping, outdoorsy person (or German)”. It sounded like a perfect match, but due to the massive rainfall before and during the hike, I soon had to accept that mother nature had no plans to let anyone near the cross at the end of the trail…

Live #87, Navigmag, Chile

#108_navimag19/04/2015 The 4-day Navimag cruise from Puerto Natales to Puerto Montt is known for it’s amazing views on the Patagonian Fjords and the chance to see blue whales. I was lucky with the whales, but not so much with the weather, leaving me with mostly grey skies and rain.  Read the rest of this entry »

Live #86, Torres del Paine, Patagonia, Chile (Days 5 & 6)

#107_tdp516/04/2015 It was the fifth and final (full) day of my trek through Torres del Paine. The weather conditions remained the same; a freezing cold morning, followed by a great sunny day. I would make my way through an impressive canyon before attempting an early morning sunrise hike towards the Torres Lake, hoping that the weather would stick around for just a bit longer as rain was dominating the forecast in the next days..

Live #85, Torres del Paine, Patagonia, Chile (Day 4)

#106_tdp415/04/2015 The ice on my tent was a remnant of the bitter cold night and I had to start walking in my shorts after falling to the ground and opening up a wound on my knee. I couldn’t help but smile when I was asked if I would be heading to the beach! My final destination for the day would be Mirador of Vallé Frances though, offering a first close-up view on the famous Torres. Read the rest of this entry »

Live #84, Torres del Paine, Patagonia, Chile (Day 3)

#105_tdp314/04/2015 The third day of my trek in Torres del Paine National Park would finally lead me to one of the highlights: Paso John Gardner. I was happy to wake up full of energy after a very comfortable night without any rats around this time and had to cross a second hanging bridge, spanned high above the valley at an awesome viewpoint of the glacier. Taking pictures in that situation turned out to be pretty difficult because of the bridge’s movement.. Read the rest of this entry »

Live #83, Torres del Paine, Patagonia, Chile (Day 2)

#104_tdp213/04/2015 I was happy to leave the rat-infested camp of the first night behind and fixed the holes in my new tent. Happy for the sun to provide warmth after a cold morning, I soon got to see the first splendid views on Glaciar Grey in the distance. My plan was to hike up to Paso John Gardner, but I knew that the circuit was officially closed and when two french hikers passed me on the way down after being sent back from a ranger, I had to come up with a damn good first impression in order to convince him to let me pass… Read the rest of this entry »

Live #82, Torres del Paine, Patagonia, Chile (Day 1)

#103_tdp112/04/2015 Torres del Paine… Everyone who ever thought about going to Patagonia certainly knows about this location. It is utterly breath taking and I saved it for the end of my trip in southern Chile. Making my way from Puerto Natales, I came prepared with enough food for the six day hike around the famous towers. Check out this update to find out what happened during the first day hiking to Mirador Condor and especially about the unexpected visitor in the night, preventing me from getting any sleep.

Live #81, Puerto Natales, Chile

#102_puertonatales10/04/2015 Puerto Natales serves as an entry point to the famous peaks of Torres del Paine in the Chilean Patagonia. I spent a few days in the charming little town to prepare my trip and enjoy the good weather while having a rather unusual Couchsurfing expierence… Read the rest of this entry »

Video from Argentina, Patagonia Part 2

#89_argentina_elchalten_pasodelcuadrado

The day after our emergency fire at snowy Laguna Piedras Blanca offered us a lot of sun and perfect hiking conditions. Rene decided to return to El Chaltén while I was starting the steep ascend to Paso del Cuadrado, eventually spending another freezing und unforgettable night in the snow at 1800m. Leaving the Fitz Roy Skyline in perfect weather conditions behind, I completed my last hikes to Mirador de la Loma, Los Cóndores & Las Águilas before setting an end to my trip in Argentina’s Patagonia by visiting the breathtaking glacier Perito Moreno near El Calafate. I also squeezed in some of the Bouldering from Ushuaia 🙂 Read the rest of this entry »
