Chile is a country whose shape makes a road trip quite ridiculously simple. Long and thin, the Andes a constant companion to the east and the calming knowledge that the west coast is never far away, it is difficult to lose your bearings. Pretty basic - head south and the mountains are on your left… head north and they are on your right.

If you are fortunate enough to have a few spare days either side of your stopover in Santiago, then I cannot recommend a visit to Cajon del Maipo strongly enough. Honestly, get yourself over there - only an hour and a half bus or car journey from Santiago.

On a rare cloudy Friday afternoon in Santiago, Vicky and I went on an E-bike tour of Santiago, taking in the sites with minimal effort - but still getting the rewarding feeling of powering your own adventure (sort of).

The Environmental Game-Changers of Patagonia

At Cascada Expediciones we are sad to have heard of the death of Douglas Tompkins. Tompkins died after a kayaking accident on Lake General Carrera, aged 72. Whilst it my be of no comfort to his family and friends, one can only say that it is a fitting way to go for this passionate protector of the Patagonian wilderness - out in the nature he loved so much. Successful conservation is not just a matter of leaving nature as it is. It is the fruit of many years of effort of dedicated environmentalists and ecologists.

In this Cascada post, we meet the Tompkins', a couple who has left a formidable environmental legacy in Patagonia.
