“The region feels truly undiscovered, you would turn a bend to be met by a striking 60-metre waterfall.”
Southern Chile’s remote fjordland area of Puyuhuapi marked the start of their 4WD adventure, of which “80% was almost off-roading”. Naturally, movements were less than usual, however the pair had this hushed haven entirely to themselves, driving for hours without seeing a single other and passing through the occasional village.
Sunrise saw them embark on a kayak adventure through Puyuhuapi’s emerald fjords alongside their guide. “With the fantastic guidance of Danilo, we stopped at otherwise inaccessible areas of land, hiking through heavy jungle to discover amazing waterfalls. With help from an expert eye, we were also incredibly lucky to spot a school of dolphins from the kayaks.”
For a spot of rejuvenation (a rarity for these adventurers), dipping between thermal baths and icy fjords was one they had to try, before hiking to the Queulat National Park to lay eyes on the awe-inspiring Ventisquero Colgante, essentially a hanging glacier which Charlie described as “nuts!”
