  4. 4. Chile Chile is a land of great contrasts and remarkable beauty, which offers its visitors an ample scope of alternatives to enjoy splendid leisure or adventure holidays. P a t a g o n i a / To r r e s d e l P a i n e , Landscapes & Wildlife The Lodge Slow has ample experience in organizing photo safari in Torres del Paine for people who are interested in landscapes and wildlife. The Torres del Paine National Park is one of the most extraordinary places in Chile for the photography of fauna, flora and scenery. Each departure is guided by a professional photographer who lives in the area year around. During your trip you’ll have the opportunity to shoot magnificent vistas and an up close visit to the Glacier Grey part of the southern Patagonian ice field. Chances are we’ll view a brilliant display of ice calving from the glacier. Other highlights include the majestic Andea Condor with its wing span of up to ten feet or a Chilean flamingo, a contrast in this harsh landscape. We lodge at the Hosteria Pehoe, the most centrally located hotel in the park and with spectacular views of the Paine massif just a step or short walk outside your bedroom door. Located in South America, between the Pacific Ocean and the Andean Mountain Range, Chile has an abundant variety of different landscapes and climatic zones according to its distinctive geographic regions. This spectrum reaches from the heat and aridity of the Atacama Desert (considered to be the driest desert in the world) to the mysterious Rapa Nui (Easter) Island, and the Juán Fernández archipelago with Robinson Crusoe Island, to the temperate climate of the central zone, the Island of Chiloé, and the heavy rainfall and temperature drops of the ultimate south, from where the desolate landscape of Tierra del Fuego gives way to the Antartica which preserves over 90 % of the ice reserves and 70 % of the freshwater reserves of the world. Wildlife: Spring in Patagonia offers long days of sunlight, vast landscapes of steepe (pampa) and a world of native flowers and plants springing alive. This is the time when the young are born of the wildlife unique to the area, guanacos (Llama family), foxes, hares, ñandu (ostrich family) and pumas (mountain lions) in addition to many more varieties of birds. Landscapes: Patagonia in the fall is a unique opportunity to capture the explosion of colors as the leaves on the native Nothofagus trees change to bright red against the back drop of the snow capped peaks of the Paine Massif. It’s a time to take advantage of the sunlight that has softened and changed angles since the summer, creating magnificent shadows over the pampas and the rolling hills.

  5. 5. Patagonia/Puerto N a t a l e s - To r r e s d e l P a i n e The official Chilean language is Castillian Spanish, even though the acknowledgement of English as a second language is growing among its population of over 15 million inhabitants. Puerto Natales is located 254 km north of Punta Arenas. It is the capital of the Province of Última Esperanza (Last Hope) and starting point for tourist destinations known worldwide. Puerto Natales is located 254 km north of Punta Arenas. It is the capital of the Province of Última Esperanza (Last Hope) and a starting point for tourist destinations known worldwide. National Park Torres del Paine is situated between the massif of the Andean mountain range and the Patagonian steppe in the province of Última Esperanza. Open year around, the park can be reached by air, land and water, and there are various circuits which encircle its extension. The most comprehensive trips are done by car along the approximately 100 km route that crosses the park and skirts lagoons, rivers and waterfalls of astonishing beauty. Another option is to trek along the trails that are diligently described, arranged and marked with signs. These trails encompass tours for one day up to a complete circuit through the Paine massif, a majestic tour that lasts between six and ten days. Through them you cross different rivers, valleys, hills and glaciers.

Also, visitors will have the opportunity to appreciate the copihue , national flower that normally grows in the forested zones of the Arancanía region. Furthermore, they can enjoy the traditional “Cueca” dance, which, as it happens with the climate, has peculiar characteristics in each region.
