PlanetThis vacation takes you to some of the more remote and as yet little visited areas of Chile. We are aware that we do not want to disturb the balance of the environment nor the landscapes we visit. We visit the Queulat National Park where the entrance fees are funnelled into the conservation of local flora and fauna as well as the protection of the waterways and the glacier itself.
We stay in locally run hotels and B+Bs, built in keeping with the with the landscape and scenery, using locally sourced materials and labour carefully monitored by the CONAF the forestry commission. By doing so, we help to avoid the demand for large scale hotels in an area that is as pristine as this.
This vacation particularly appeals to an adventurous traveler, wishing to explore the natural surroundings of the region with having as little impact as possible. Most of the roads in the region are unpaved and vehicles are restricted to a reduced speed limit in order avoid erosion of the road verge, and vegetation along the routes. We employ local guides for the included and optional excursions into the National Parks who adhere to strict guidelines of the trails which visitors should stay on and educate them on the protection of the flora and fauna in the area.
