MOST Beautiful Outdoor Attractions in Chile
This South American country is famous for its lush landscapes and beautiful natural formations that bring in visitors from all over the world. Here are just 19 of the best sights to see in Chile’s great outdoors.
10. Caburgua Lake
If you’re near the city of Pucón, you can find the Caburgua Lake about 23 miles to the east, part of the Toltén River basin. Recently, visitation to the lake has blossomed as it serves as a popular place for famous people to go and relax. The lake itself has a surface area of 53 km squared, or 20 sq miles, which makes it the perfect place for seclusion and a lot of room for people to have their space and swim.
9. Chungará Lake
Chungará Lake is located in the northernmost region of Chile and is part of the Lauca National Park (more on that later). The lake has a surface elevation of 14,820 ff, making it the 31st highest lake in the world.
8. Valle Nevado
This is yet another location part of the Andes Mountains and is less than 50 miles away from Santiago, the capital city of Chile. The ski resort has an elevation of 5,430 m or 17,815 ft high. The snowy area was turned into a ski resort back in 1987 and has been bustling with lots of skiers ever since. Just 4 years ago, the resort introduced the first mountain cable car in the country.
7. El Tatio
That’s the Tatio Geysers, as in plural, and they have been active for over 80 years. The geyser field is also found in the area of the Andes Mountains, with it’s name translating to mean “oven” in Quechua. The land is about 4,320 meters above sea level, which makes El Tatio one of the highest elevation geyser fields on earth.
6. Lauca National Park
There’s all sorts of outdoorsy stuff to see at the Lauca National Park, which also borders the Sajama National Park in Bolivia. One of the most notable sights you’ll see in a lot of tourist pictures are llamas and alpacas running around the hilly grass fields. The national park is home to over 140 species of birds as well as over 400 species of higher plants.
5. Conguillío National Park
Yet another national park in Chile that’s famous. Declared as an official national park in 1950, at Conguillío, you can catch sight of Sierra Nevada volcano and another volcano known as Llaima which last erupted on New Year’s Day in 2008, and what are known as Monkey Puzzle Trees. If that doesn’t sound like an assortment of landmarks to visit, that what does, to be honest? Hiking is a flourishing activity in the area, too,
4. Ojos del Salado
For all those super into mountain climbing and hiking, Ojos del Salado should probably be on your to visit list, especially if you’re really into the thrill seeking side of it as it’s also the highest active volcano in the world, with an elevation of 6,890 m or 22,605 ft high. As far as volcanic activity goes, the most recent eruption was well over 1,000 years ago, with ash emission having been detected 24 years ago. Despite it’s last eruption being centuries ago, it is still considered an active volcano.
Chile is a place riddled with volcanos and lakes, and another famous one to visit is Villarrica, which is both a lake and a volcano. It is among the country’s most active volcanoes, and is more than 700 miles away from the country’s capital. It’s name translates to “a place of wealth” and remains a place popular for hiking--with it’s most recent eruption having been in 2015.
2. Marble Cathedral
The Marble Cathedral is a natural formation can be found in General Carrera, the second largest freshwater lake in South America. Located more specifically in Patagonia, Chile, this cave has drawn lots of attention to itself for its marble motif which was created by melting glaciers that drained into the lake from the Pacific Ocean. And not only is the stone something to marvel at, but the water flowing in from the lake appear shades of crystal blue--depending on the time of year and the way the light reflects off the water.
If Chile’s anything, it’s apparently the perfect place for some great outdoor photo ops. One of those places being La Portada, which is the natural stone arch located on out on the waters on the coast. The arch is only part of the appropriately named La Portada Natural Monument area, which spans nearly 80 acres. The beach it’s located near is also a natural marvel, with jagged rocks peaking up from the shore as well as a line of white and golden cliffs that make it seem like some surreal and ideal secluded daydream.

Unbelievable Places That Really Exist
From the unreal Yoro Park in Japan to the Bergpark Wilhelmshohe in Germany, here are Unbelievable Places That Really Exist.
Learn about the BIGGEST of everything Monday, Wednesday, and Friday just subscribe!
# 8 Yoro Park
The town of Yoro located in the Gifu prefecture of Japan is relatively small and unremarkable with a population of just 33,000. However, many people are attracted to this place because of the Yoro Park Site of Reversible Destiny. It is a strange “theme park” that doesn’t have the roller coasters or rides that most theme parks offer. Instead, it boasts surreal landscaping, perfectly round domes covered in grass, and architecture that will make you scratch your head. It was originally designed to incorporate the 100 waterfalls in the area into a unified place.
# 7 Beppu, Japan
The Japanese island of Kyushu is home to many things, but is also known to be a very active hotbed of geothermal activity. Hot springs have bubbled up over the city of Beppu and are so hot they create huge steam clouds that rise above the rooftops, making it look like the entire city is on fire. These springs are colored a deep blue or deep orange but are too hot to bathe in, ranging in temperature from 50 to 99.5 degrees Celsius. This hot water is piped through the city to be used in homes, restaurants, and even in places where it is cooled down enough to help with physical therapy.
# 6 Village of Monsanto
Voted the most Portuguese village in Portugal and built to be intertwined with the landscape is the village of Monsanto. Looking at pictures might be shocking because it looks as if the village was crushed by a landslide. The village was built between, underneath, and around these boulders which have been there for as long as the village has. Monsanto was built in the 12th century and sits on top of a mountain, giving a spectacular view of the Italian countryside.
# 5 Marble Caves of Chile Chico
This stark rock shape is located in a peninsula bordering Lake General Carrera along the Chile-Argentina border. It’s one of the marble caves of Chile Chico, a giant outcropping of solid marble that has been slowly carved by water pushing up against it. The marble caves are very far removed from any established paved roads and require a 30 minute guided boat ride to get to. The parts that have been polished by the water reveal a beautiful pearly, swirling pattern hidden inside the rock.
# 4 The Natural Bridge
Most bridges are man-made marvels, but this one was made completely by Mother Nature. It was carved by Cedar Creek which flowed through it over the course of thousands of years. It’s a 65 meter high bridge that is sacred to the Monacan tribe and was later surveyed by American colonists. One of these colonists was George Washington who allegedly carved his initials into the rock.
# 3 The Blue Forest
The Hallerbos, or Blue Forest, is a dream-like forest in Belgium. Most times of the year it’s beautiful, but unremarkable as far as forests go. However, every spring, the forest takes on a whole new quality that makes it seem straight out of a dream. The forest floor blooms with blue bell flowers, completely saturating the place with the densest meadow of bluebells in all of Europe.
# 2 Atlantic Ocean Road
We’ve all heard of taking the “scenic route”, but the Atlantic Ocean Road takes that to the next level. This winding road curves over and around the brutal Norwegian Sea. The road connects several tiny islands together to unify the country, and to do this it crosses the beautiful scenery of the Norwegian coasts. Despite several arched bridges and elevated roads, the water will still occasionally crash over the road during storms. If you are lucky and brave enough to cross this road, you will be rewarded with some of the most breathtaking views in the world.
# 1 Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe
This image has been circulating on the internet for at least four years now and is frequently captioned as being somewhere near Poland or Germany. While this actual image is just a photo mockup, there is a similar waterfall castle that actually exists in Kassel Germany. The Bergpark Wilhelmshohe is an old water park that was first built in 1696. It’s equipped to handle 92,000 gallons that flow through the three-century-old pneumatic devices. The water most notable flows down a 350-meter long cascade/slide that makes it look like a castle sitting directly on top of a water park. You can still visit the Bergpark Wilhelmshohe despite its age as it was designated a UNESCO world heritage spot in 2013.

10. Volcán, Panama
Volcán in Panama, also called the Shangri-La Valley, is one of the healthiest and most beautiful places in the world. It’s a popular location for people searching for a low cost of living and stunning scenery, but there’s more to this place than the mountains. Something about Volcán means that residents tend to live for far longer than you would expect based on the life expectancy of the rest of the country, with people often living well into their 80’s or 90’s.
This is likely due to the lifestyle you can enjoy here. Volcán is in the Chiriquí province, which is also known as Panama’s breadbasket, and provides about 80% of Panama’s produce. Farms of all sizes grow pretty much anything you could ever want. With constant spring-like temperatures, thermal springs, and fresh food that includes seafood, eggs and fruits; people that live here exist in a bubble of serenity and health. This is, of course, helped by the surrounding landscape, national parks and a wide variety of wildlife that makes it one of the best bird-watching locations in the whole of Panama.
9. Sardinia, Italy
The island of Sardinia is one of the first places in the world to be identified as a blue zone, a place that holds the world’s longest living people. It’s actually the place that has the highest concentration of male centenarians, with nearly ten times as many per capita than there are in the United States.
The reason why the people here live so long is a combination of their genetic traits along with their lifestyle, and it’s a great place to live. Not just if you want to live longer but because of their quality of life. They tend to keep things simple and have low stress! Life shouldn’t be so complicated! Islanders still hunt, fish and harvest all of the food that they eat, with a diet based around whole grain bread, beans, lots of vegetables and fruits, goat’s milk and cheese. They only tend eat meat on special occasions. The island is also a wonderful place to walk around and explore, and with their close community involvement and love for wine, you could do worse than to make this place your home.
8. Costa Rica
With cloud forests at five thousand feet, to glorious white sandy beaches, Costa Rica has everything you could want from a place to live. Add to this the bustling cities full of entertainment and culture, reliable infrastructure, and good health care, it’s no wonder that it’s a popular destination for expats and people looking to relocate looking for a better quality of life.
The happy planet index, which measures human well-being and environmental impact, ranks Costa Rica as one of the best places in the world to live. This is the result of a unique way of life in the country. For example, since 1949 their constitution has forbidden them from having an army, and it’s the location of the United Nations University for Peace. There’s also an impressive life expectancy, and a literacy rate of 97.8 per cent.
Everything is relatively cheap here too, although housing has gone up since it is popular with expats, and there’s no end of wondrous sights. Despite taking up 0.03 per cent of the planet, over 5% of the world’s biodiversity can be found here in the numerous protected forests and reserves that are full of hummingbirds, sloths and plenty more.
Origins Explained is the place to be to find all the answers to your questions, from mysterious events and unsolved mysteries to everything there is to know about the world and its amazing animals!

Nara Street Food Guide w/ Extra Mochi
STREET FOOD! We’re back for more in one of Japan’s most traditional cities, Nara.
What was once Japan’s capitol is now a place loaded with delicious street food for humans and deer alike. So, what’s Nara got to offer? I hope you're hungry!
★ YAKI IMO / Grilled Sweet Potato / 200 yen per 100g
★ YOMOGI MOCHI / green mowort mochi filled with azuki beans, slightly bitter, slightly sweet / 130 yen each
★ KAKI NO HA SUSHI / sushi wrapped in permission leaves 1000 to 15000 yen for 8 to 12
★ DORAYAKI / pancakes filled with azuki red bean paste / 600 yen for a large one
★ DEER RICE CRACKCERS / shika senbei that they love to eat / 150 yen per pack
★ SHIKA NO FUN (Deer Poop) / chocolate covered peanuts or soy beans / 350 yen per bag
★ SOFT SERVED ICE CREAM / 350 yen each
Probably the most famous street food is mochi prepared by Nakatanido, a hundred meters behind the Kintetsu Nara Station. The mochi making performace where Nakatani-san opens the shop window and pounds the mochi at lightning speed takes place a few times a day.
Stop by and ask about performance times because you don’t want to miss it. It’s served right after and it’s absolutely the best mochi in Kansai. I went at 11:30am.
Note that the deer are wild animals and although they’re mostly friendly, they will bite, charge and bump tourists. Please be careful especially with children.
Nara is an easy train ride from Osaka or Kyoto and worth a day trip or longer if you like hiking and trekking around nature to see temples and shrines. Perfect when the weather is clear.

SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS
Our visit Rio De Janeiro travel guide documentary, before the Olympics of 2016, covers some of the top attractions including a food guide (best restaurants and street food), top museums and Rio at night. We also cover off-the-beaten-path activities you won't find in a typical Rio De Janeiro tourism brochure or Rio De Janeiro, Brasil city tour.
25 Things to do in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil Travel Guide and Top Attractions Transcript:
First up, we started with the city’s most iconic sight: Christ Redeemer. We boarded the train as soon as the station opened and made our way to the top of Corcovado Mountain. Sometimes the statue can be shielded by fog, but we lucked out with beautiful blue skies and panoramic views of the city as far as the eye could see.
For a bit of colour, we headed over to the Selaron Steps, which is a tiled staircase created by Chilean artist, Jorge Selarón. Initially Selaron would scavenge construction sites looking for tiles, but in later years as his work gained notoriety, travellers began donating tiles.
Since we chose to stay in the neighbourhood of Ipanema, we ended up spending quite a bit of time at Ipanema Beach. We noticed that this beach was really popular for beach football, volleyball, and surfing. And of course, what makes this beach so iconic are its two mountains, known as Dois Irmãos. If you come here on a clear day, you can catch a killer sunset.
No visit to Rio de Janeiro would be complete without heading up Sugarloaf Mountain, so when the skies finally cleared that’s exactly what we did. We paid for our tickets and boarded the cable car for a somewhat unnerving ride up. If you’re scared of heights, this probably isn’t the attraction for you, however, if you manage to make it to the top you get some really cool panoramic views of Rio.
Copacabana Beach is the most famed beach in all of Rio de Janeiro and if you were to visit on a weekend during the summer months you’d find that the place is packed beyond belief. We happened to be here in winter so things were a lot more relaxed, but that didn’t stop visitors from braving the waters.
We did a favela tour to Babilônia and Chapéu Mangueira. On our tour we saw lots of street art, learned about life inside a favela.
And that is a wrap! We hope this video will give you guys some ideas of things to do in Rio de Janeiro on your visit, and for those travellers who have already been there, feel free to add your suggestion of cool activities and attractions in the comments below.

Izola (Slovenia) Vacation Travel Video Guide
Vacation travel video about destination Izola in Slovenia.
Izola is an historic city on the Slovenian Adria coast.The idyllic old town and atmospheric, narrow streets date back to Roman times. However, from 1280 to 1797, Venice ruled the old fishing city and characterised its appearance. Thus the famous Venetian-inspired Palazzo Besenghi Degli Ughi was created, a Baroque palace built at the end of the eighteenth century. The Big Square at the old harbour is framed by several picturesque buildings. It was there that the colourful life of a harbour city took place under the rule of Venice. After the fall of the Serenissima followed the Habsburgs. In the new town with its beautiful buildings and small parks, a Mediterranean lifestyle is the order of the day and the time of being part of Military Zone B and Yugoslavia is now a thing of the past. Izola has blossomed once again and its long history has been preserved for future generations.
