Travel reports from Chile

Valle de Elqui, Chile

Hiking, star watching, hospitality

In the scenic Valle de Elqui, time seems to be standing still in many places. Calm and serenity trumps this part of Chile. Pure relaxation. But the valley, which has made a name for itself with the cultivation of grapes for pisco and wine production throughout the country, offers its visitors even more: numerous hiking opportunities, starry nights and the friendliest people we met on our trip through Chile to have.


The Invisible City - Santiago de Chile

I take turns drinking Kunstmann beer and Pisco Sour to reconcile jet lag and culture shock. Later the pololo / friend of Lisa joins me, who recommends the book Santiago Bizarro by Sergio Paz to me. Santiago is an invisible city, he says, which can only be opened up with much patience and would take on the shape of a progressive puzzle game.

The huge natural landscapes in the north of Chile

I confess, I lived ...

... reads the blurb to Pablo Neruda's memoir, the world-famous Chilean poet. After ten days of intense travel to his homeland, I can not help but summarize my experience under this same title. Gracias Pablo and Gracias Turismo Chile and to the LATAM Airlines Group that I made it slightly drunk and unscathed in the Andean Republic.

Discovery tour through the Atacama desert

More than just the driest desert in the world

In the middle of the Atacama desert is San Pedro de Atacama. Described by many travel guides as an Eldorado for backpackers, the desert oasis town is an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding bizarre, beautiful scenery. Whether the Valle de la Luna with bizarre rock formations, water-spouting geysers or deep blue-sparkling Altiplanoseen - nature lovers get their money's worth in the driest desert in the world. We too were inspired by the impressive landscape for a few days.
