At the Cascada Expediciones offices it is pretty standard for the team to rock up to work in hiking boots or sports gear, even though we are situated in the middle of the Santiago business district - we just like to feel as though we are ready for anything. 
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 Patagonia, large swaths of virgin land have been saved from development thanks to the work of people who have had the foresight to start the campaign before it’s too late. Who are these indefatigable environmental game-changers of Patagonia? In this Cascada post, we meet the Tompkins', a couple who has left a formidable environmental legacy in Patagonia.

The Atacama Desert has been receiving a fair amount of media attention recently, thanks to the miniscule amount of rain which has given life to a carpet of pink flowers.

For traveling foodies, the pleasure of perusing a foreign menu, ordering from a street vendor's unusual snack selection, or savoring a new dish's unique flavors is the very heartbeat and reason for travel. Sharing meals is such an integral part of the travel experience that the very names of many countries evoke images of food almost immediately - just try whispering sweet nothings of "Italy, India, Japan, France, Vietnam, Peru, and Greece..." to a food traveler and challenge their mouth not to water! But how do travelers with dietary concerns fare when on the road?
