The series — which was executive produced and narrated by former President Barack Obama — travels from the lush rain forests of Indonesia’s Gunung Leuser National Park to the coves and beaches of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, with stops in Kenya’s Tsavo National Park and Chilean Patagonia.

Encompassing 24 unique national parks, the magnificent Chilean Patagonia is rapidly becoming one of the most protected places on the planet.

This docuseries’ second episode focuses on the Chilean Patagonia, which encompasses the southern end of South America. In total there are 24 national parks in this region, but Our Great National Parks only covers five of them:

Torres del Paine: Located in the southern park of the Patagonia, this one includes mountains, glaciers, lakes, and rivers. It’s also home to pumas and the guanaco, a close relative of the llama.

Cerro Castillo National Park: Found in the Aysén Region, this environment is home to the Andean condor, which is largely considered to be the largest bird of prey in the world. The species was classified as endangered, but in recent years it has been making a comeback.

Conguillío National Park: Part of the Andes, this park is home to the Llaima volcano as well as the endangered Araucaria, better known as the monkey puzzle tree.

Laguna San Rafael National Park: On the Pacific coast of southern Chile sits this park that is home to the San Rafael Glacier. The series follows the leopard seals that can be found here.

Diego Ramirez Islands: A group of subantarctic islands, this region is in the middle of some of the most precarious waters on the planet. They’re also home to grey-headed and black-browed albatrosses as well as southern rockhopper penguins.

Chile’s famed Atacama Desert lies in the north near the border with Bolivia. Driving into San Pedro de Atacama, a hub of activity in the sparsely populated region, I had time to take in the rocky, ochre-colored expanses of one of the driest places in the world.

Heading south from Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego is the most remote region of Chile. This is where the tip of South America breaks into a watery wonderland of massive mountainous islands, emerald fjords, and ancient glaciers. I explored by ship, which made it easier to reach the epic landscapes of this far-flung natural playground.

What is interpretive hiking?

Surely you must be thinking, what is this all about? Well, it is so-called because the main importance of this type of hiking is to show the most relevant aspects of the wildlife, landscape, geology, history or archeology so that the hiker has a much more complete experience, which goes beyond a mere sport activity.

In the case of the Ventisquero Yelcho trail, a trail has been prepared that highlights the natural heritage of the area. It’s wonderful, isn’t it, to walk in the middle of nature with all your senses awaken, seriously informing yourself about what your eyes are seeing.

Although interpretive hiking has been practiced for a long time, it has gained special prominence in recent years due to the great interest of visitors to learn more about the trails.

Chile has been named the best adventure travel destination in South America at the World Travel Awards from the last 3 years.
Why? Unique nature, climate diversity, and geographic contrasts are the principal characteristics that make Chile an incomparable destination. The great geographic barriers that surround Chile, such as the Atacama Desert, the Pacific Ocean, the Andes Mountains, and Patagonia and the Antarctic Territory give a distinctive character that allows you to take part in adventure activities in places in which man has barely set foot.

Discover Santiago, the multi-faceted capital of Chile, with its fine parks and numerous sporting and cultural activities. Explore Cajón del Maipo — an oasis just outside of Santiago — and connect with nature, a sense of tranquility and fresh mountain air when
you hike at “El Morado” Natural Monument in the heart of the Andes Mountain Range.
The Lake District, which stretches 339km from Temuco in the north to Puerto Montt in the south, is a region of lush farmland, dense forest, snowcapped volcanoes and deep, clear lakes, hidden for the most part in the mountains. The real action lies in the region’s many national parks and around the adventure sports capitals of Pucón and Puerto Varas, where the options abound for Hiking, Volcano-climbing, Rafting, Kayaking, Canyoning, Horse riding and Soaking in the many Thermal Springs. In the winter, Skiing down volcanoes draws an adventurous crowd.
Finally, Easter Island (Rapa Nui: Rapa Nui, Spanish: Isla de Pascua) is a Polynesian island in the southeastern Pacific Ocean, at the southeasternmost point of the Polynesian Triangle. Easter Island is famous for its 887 extant monumental statues, called “Moai”, created by the early Rapa Nui people. In 1995, UNESCO named Easter Island a World Heritage Site, with much of the island protected within Rapa Nui National Park.

Welcome to the Adventure country in Sudamerica…Chile!

Far from the cosmopolitan and vibrant city of Santiago, a very special grape grows. Almost killed by insects, and then forgotten, the Carménère was reborn more than 10.000 km away from its homeland and today is Chile’s most renowned wine around the world… But how did that happen?

In the 19th century, the phylloxera epidemic almost wiped all of France’s raisin plants, forcing French winemakers to start over with their plantations of Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Carménère. Their efforts worked and almost all of the strains were brought back to life, but the Carménère couldn’t adapt to the cold spring and early autumn rains of Bordeaux and got extinct.

More than a hundred years passed and the Carménère was reborn in central Chile. How? A decade before the plague that affected France started, a few strains of Carménère joined the European winemakers that migrate to Chile around 1850. However, this survivor wine strain was sown next to Merlot and Cabernet plants and for years Carménère was marketed as these two varieties.
