My Chilean Adventure — 21 days travelling through the longest country in the world


ROAD TRIP I SELF DRIVE in SOUTH AMERICA | 15000 KM | 6 Countries | 60 Days I Cartagena to Ushuaia

An Epic cross border Road Trip where we drove from top to the bottom of South America. We started from Cartagena, Colombia and ended in Buenos Aires, Argentina covering over 15000 km, while driving through six countries.

During these two months, we hiked the Inca trail, drove on the Salar de Uyuni salt flats, wandered through Argentina’s wine region, danced up a storm in Buenos Aires, witnessed the stunning Perito Moreno Glacier, got a tan in the Atacama Desert. If that wasn’t enough, we cruised the mystical, mysterious and the fascinating jungles of the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforests.

Here’s a glimpse into all the fun and adventure we had during those two months.

Travel video about destination Chile.
Chile was given its name by the Incas who respectfully called it Chili, ‘the country in the south’. Santiago De Chile, the capital of Chile, is dignified, modest and European-looking and also lively, modern and full of Latin temperament. The Plaza De Armas is the heart of the city and the historic centre of colonial Santiago that contains the city’s most important buildings. The city of Valparaiso or, Paradise Valley, is around a hundred and twenty kilometres from the capital of Santiago De Chile on the Pacific coast. The city’s development was closely connected with its harbour which brought it wealth and power. Since the middle of the nineteenth century, escalators have rattled up and down the steep hills of the harbour city with forty five hills flanking the bay, each of them covered with a number of tiny wooden huts. Only a short journey on a gravel road and the Atacama Desert begins. At its centre it is the driest desert in the world where the forces of nature have turned it into an extraordinary landscape. The Atacama extends between the Pacific Ocean and the Cordilleras, an area of stone and sand that is perforated only by various frequently dried out salt lakes. For those ships that sailed around Cape Horn, Ancud represented a safe harbour on the journey north in which they could rest after sailing the stormy waters of the South Pacific. At a time when whales and seals were hunted in the Antarctic, Ancud served as a supply station along the route to the southern Polar sea. From the Atacama Desert in the north to as far as the stormy Tierra Del Fuego in the south, Chile is a country rich in contrast. Volcanoes, arid deserts, salt lakes, lively geysers, sandstone mountains and a cosmopolitan city. All of this is to be found in Chile, a country at the end of the world!

Living in Chile 2017 - Intro

Some background information about our future episodes set in Viña Del Mar, Chile. Watch each episode as we learn a new culture, language and attempt to start a new life in South America.

Two months travelling in South America

Day1: We started our trip in Sao Paulo, one of the most dangerous cities in the world. What we experienced wasn't criminal or felt dangerous at all. Millions of people and most of the parents of those with babies were carrying them instead of using a trolley.

Day 4: After a 7 hours bus ride heading east, we arrived at the picturesque fishing village Paraty and enjoyed a nice swim at the local waterfalls.

Day 6: 7 more hours bus ride to the east, we arrived in beautiful Rio de Janeiro, where we had the chance the celebrate New Year's Eve with millions of locals and foreigners all dressed in white. On the remaining days, we visited the world famous Sugar Loaf and the Christus Statue.

Day 10: On our way to Patagonia, we actually had to stop over in Buenos Aires but after a couple of hours at the Airport we entered the plane again to fly to El Calafate. Here we rented a car and visited the nearby Perito Moreno Glacier, which is incredibly huge and still growing.

On the same day, we headed directly south the famous Route RA40 to Torres del Paine. You have to cross borders from Argentina to Chile and must not bring any fruits or any uncanned food. However, it's absolutely worth the 4 hours drive, since the scenery in TDP is simply spectacular. Since it's quite hard to find a free camping site we had to search for a while but we ended up finding one with an awesome view on Las Torres. After some days of hiking and exploring the gigantic Nationalpark by car, we headed by to El Calafate to take the bus to El Chalten.

10:41 Here we did the beautiful Fitz Roy tour.

Day 19: To avoid another long bus ride we chose to take the plane to Bariloche where we did the Chico bicycle tour which was quite nice but not really worth it. Anyways we took the 1st class night-bus to Santiago de Chile. 16:36 Here we spend only a night, since we heard that Valparaiso was way nicer ;-) and it was!

After art full Valparaiso 16:38 we had a cheap flight (90 US$ only) from Santiago de Chile to Calama.

23:00 Here we used our rental car to explore all the Geysirs and salt lakes around San Pedro de Atacama.

Day 26: After too many days in the Atacama Desert, just because the planned bus was not coming for 2 days, we finally made it on one to exit to Salta. This bus ride to us over 20 hours and 7 of them only at the border :-(

Day 30: Therefore Salta was only a one day visit since Buenos Aires was waiting already. Here we spend a couple of days before I flew to Quito for a Spanish course. 26:50

Day 40: Ater this I worked for 2 weeks on Galapagos Islands which was awesome :-) 28:48

Day 52: One week in the Jungle Cuyabenowas my final destination to round up these 2-month travel experience in South America.


The Great Indian World Trip!

An unprecedented journey where we drove 90,000 km through 50 countries in 6 continents. We spent 2 years planning this round the world expedition which we love to describe as “The Mother of all Road Trips”.

We split our journey into 6 legs for the 6 continents

Leg 1: ASIA
Our epic journey started from India Gate, New Delhi. We crossed the Indian border and drove through Myanmar, a hidden gem in the sub-continent that was till a few years ago closed to tourists. From Myanmar, we drove through Thailand and Malaysia before concluding our Asia leg in Singapore.

We shipped our vehicle to Darwin, Australia where we drove more than 17000 km. Here, we created a Guinness World Record for 'The longest journey by car in a single country'.

After shipping our car from Darwin, Australia to Mombasa, Kenya, we drove all the way from Kenya to South Africa covering Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe on the way. The African odyssey concluded in Cape Agulhas, the southernmost tip of the African continent.

Our vehicle was then shipped to Buenos Aires, Argentina from where we drove to Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world. From Ushuaia, we took the Pan American highway and drove all the way up to Mexico crossing Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. The journey took us through the Death Road in Bolivia, rated as the Worlds’ Most Dangerous Road!

We crossed the Mexico-US border and drove through 18 states in the USA. We visited Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Hollywood, Seattle, Tennessee, Philadelphia, Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone National Park and Canada before we reached Deadhorse in Alaska, the northernmost tip of Alaska where we were greeted by the Northern Lights! Our North American leg was concluded in the Big Apple.

From New York, we shipped our car to the United Kingdom and drove all the way up to John O Groats, the northernmost tip of United Kingdom. We drove south to London, crossed the English Channel and entered mainland Europe. We covered 23 countries in Western and Eastern Europe before we reached Turkey, the 50th country of our 15-month long journey.

Road trip of a lifetime | Chile

A road trip of a lifetime is one that you’ll never forget. If you love travel and new experiences consider having your own road trip of a lifetime in Chile. Is it roadtrip or road trip (not important!)... you must travel to Chile!

This is our epic travel Chile video where we share what we think is the best of Chile travel. Solo travel Chile is taking off and so is off the beaten path travel. Exploring off the beaten path in some of the world’s most remote locations is one of our passions and in this travel vlog (the third edition of our road trip vlogs) you’ll see why! Our road trip of a lifetime was meant to be a road trip to Patagonia and actually starts in Santiago Chile and takes us all the way to the North of Chile before heading south to Patagonia.

Detailed information about our Chilean off the beaten path road trip:

Why a road trip to Chile?
Well we believe it’s a great pace to see the world. It’s comfortable, fast-ish, but still slow enough to allow you to stop and really take your surroundings in along the way. The freedom of the road, the incredible landscapes on this planet, the contrast remote locations have to the bustling city, the bonds your form along the road and that feeling I mentioned earlier are all the reasons that inspired us to do this road trip of a lifetime deep into remote locations in Chile!

When to visit?
The Atacama Desert is one of the driest places on earth and some places haven’t seen rain in over 400 years, but the weather year round is generally pretty good. The days get super hot under the desert sun and the nights are generally pretty fresh because of the altitude.

September to November and March to May are when there’ll be less tourists around which will allow you to truly feel like your in the middle of nowhere. High season is from December – February (Summer), as the warmer nights attract more people.

Which phase of the moon is optimal for stargazing?
Don’t forget to check at which phase the moon is in when you plan to visit. After all, you don’t want to miss those magical Atacama desert night skies.

So which moon phase is best? Well that depends on what you want to see! Some people really love watching the moon rise, other people are more interested in seeing deep-sky objects like galaxies, star clusters and nebulae. If that’s more your cup of tea then aim for a night where the moon is in a new phase.

Carry cash for tolls
Chilean roads are magnificent to drive along but they aren’t free. We got stuck between tolls without cash and the ATM at the gas station was out of order. Luckily a super chill chilean dude gave us a few Chilean pesos to cross the toll with but learn from our mistake, carry cash!

Check towing coverage
Towing a car is an important consideration as towing is very expensive in Chile. Wicked Campers does NOT cover this fee (so be careful not to get stuck in sand by going off road in Atacama as a lot of people run into this problem!).

Park smart
Security problems are minor compared to other South American countries but they are still there. Always lock your vehicle and leave valuables out of sight (this includes disconnecting the stereo face thingy). We’ve heard a few stories of camper vans being broken into during the night in San Pedro de Atacama, so try and minimize the time you leave your vehicle unattended and try not to leave it town after dark.

Road Laws
Chile has a zero-tolerance on drink driving. Even just one drink can get you into big trouble, so just don’t risk it. Drivers are a little less crazy than their South American counterparts but still use caution as people will undoubtedly fail to signal, run red lights or even slow down while you’re crossing the road.

We also saw a lot of people getting pulled over. At night there weren’t as many cops around but still watch your speed. Getting caught will mean a CH35,000 fine.

“Sometimes getting lost is how we find ourselves.” - Robert Tew

Travel Guide to Chile

As the longest, thinnest country in the world, Chile stretches all the way from the borders with Bolivia and Peru in the north, 4,500ks to Tierra del Fuego in the south, and yet at its widest point it, in the Atacama Desert, is only 400ks across. Sandwiched between the Pacific Ocean and the towering Andes, this fascinating Latin American country is home to the world’s driest desert, arguably the continent’s most stunning national park, an impressive wine region and, on Chiloe Island, the home of the potato! An economically sound country that is fast become a first world nation, Chile has a huge amount to offer the modern traveller.

Unless coming in overland, most trips to Chile will start here in the nation’s capital, Santiago.

Although most guidebooks will tell you Santiago is not as exciting at Rio or as elegant and enchanting as Buenos Aires, and should be used only as a gateway to the rest of the country, I feel it is an interesting place to explore for a day or two. Like many large Latin American cities it suffers somewhat from schizophrenic urban design where the city’s impressive colonial past is often dwarfed and obscured by its more ugly modern present; tenement towers and, since its rise as a regional economic powerhouse – Chile has the highest GDP per capita in South America – glass fronted office blocks. But there are still some great sites to check out including the Plaza de Armas, the Palacio Modera, the city’s main museum, and the Mercado Central, where you can enjoy a delicious seafood lunch, beneath a roof that was actually made in Birmingham! Santiago also has some lovely hotels and is famous for its excellent dining.

But Santiago is unlikely to form the main reason for your visit to Chile, that is much more likely to lie either in the far north, in the Atacama region or in the far south in Patagonia.

From Santiago, and starting in the very south of the country in Chilean Patagonia, is Puerto Aranas, entry point for what is arguably the continents most impressive national park, Torres del Paine. Deriving its name from the bull-like horns of the park’s most impressive mountain, Torres del Paine covers a quarter of a million hectares, is home to some spectacular and varied accommodation, and is a great place to hike, horse ride or just enjoy the scenery.


Moving north, we come to the beautiful Lake District around the towns of Puerto Montt and Puerto Varas. Here, up the Puelo River valley, you can do some wonderful horse riding as well as walking and kayaking. A short distance off the coast you also have Chiloe Island, which along with stunning coastal walks is also famous for being home of the potato. And further still off the coast, in fact more than 2,000 miles into the Pacific Ocean, is the extraordinary Easter Island… a land shrouded in mystery with its dramatic stone head carvings, Easter Island is one of the most remote inhabited islands on the planet.

Heading further north other notable places are the beautiful coastal towns of La Serena and Valparaiso – just a stone’s throw from the capital Santiago – and the wine district of Coquimbo where some of the country’s leading wines are manufacture

And here in the far north of the country, lies the truly extraordinary Atacama Desert. Bordering Bolivia, Peru and Argentina, is a region that’s renowned as being the driest place on earth.

Sitting in the rain shadow of both the Andes and the Chilean Coastal Range, the Atacama Desert is renowned as being the driest place on earth. It is also the region that has been driest for longest, with some suggesting a continuous arid area here dating back at least three million years. Some of the soil has no life at all, a situation NASA has exploited to test instruments for Mars missions. And, due to its otherworldly landscapes, it has been used as a location on numerous space films including Space Odyssey: Voyage to the Planets.

Forming the northern chain of Chile’s ‘Ring of Fire’ the region is framed by a spectacular girdle of volcanoes and plethora of fascinating geographical phenomenon.

A country fast emerging as a first world nation, Chile offers today’s traveller a safe location with some great accommodation, fine dining and world-class wines. But first and foremost she offers some of the most varied and impressive landscapes anywhere on earth.

Santiago is the capital and largest city of Chile. It is the center of Chile's largest and the most densely populated conurbation. The city is entirely located in the country's central valley, at an elevation of 520 m (1,706 ft) above sea level.
Founded in 1541 by the Spanish conquistador Pedro de Valdivia, Santiago has been the capital city of Chile since colonial times. The city has a downtown core of 19th-century neoclassical architecture and winding side-streets, dotted by art deco, neo-gothic, and other styles. Santiago's cityscape is shaped by several stand-alone hills and the fast-flowing Mapocho River, lined by parks such as Parque Forestal. The Andes Mountains can be seen from most points in the city. These mountains contribute to a considerable smog problem, particularly during winter. The city outskirts are surrounded by vineyards and Santiago is within a few hours of both the mountains and the Pacific Ocean.

Humberstone & Santa Laura (Chile) Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Humberstone & Santa Laura in Chile.

Abandoned mine settlements in the hot and dry pampas in the north of Chile are silent witnesses of an important era of the country’s industrial history. In the basins between the coastal cordilleras and high cordilleras are the largest saltpetre fields in the world. The industrial plants were called Oficinas and close to them originated small towns such as Humberstone in which lived the workers and their families. The workers were paid with coins that were only valid in the saltpetre town in which they laboured. Saltpetre was used for the manufacture of gunpowder and explosive substances and later, also for fertiliser. Saltpetre was in much demand and the industry boomed until 1940. It was then that saltpetre was manufactured artificially. The towns were abandoned and fell into decay. In 2005 Humberstone, together with Santa Laura, were appointed as World Heritage Sites as examples of human settlements linked to industrial complexes. Oficina Humberstone and Oficina Santa Laura are the last abandoned mine settlements of the desert region of northern Chile, relics of a bygone industrial age that are well worth preserving.
