Chilean Glimpses

A diverse selection of several Chilean glimpses…

#Santiago, Torres Del Paine, Salto Grande Waterfall, Volcano Villarrica, Patagonian Fjords, South America

Sharing with you something a little unusual with a series of four (or so) photos from different areas of a country. Maybe you’ve been to these? See what you think of this idea and leave me a comment below.

1. Patagonian Fjords

Ethereal mist and clouds whisp around mountains almost shrouding their souring existence, while gliding quietly throughout the Patagonian fjords. A surreal canvas unfolds around every watery bend, while the 4-day ferry slides further north to Puerto Monte in southern Chile.

On nature’s humbling journey through the Patagonian Fjords, expect to witness incredible scenery followed by more spectacular scenery!

2. Santiago

Santiago’s unique and beautifully-coloured alluring streets, entice even the most disgruntled of photographers.

Running late – Santiago

You can’t help but capture this vivid snapshot in time of local life in this energetic city.

3. Torres Del Paine National Park

The dramatic Torres Del Paine National Park can be reached by minibus in an hour or so from Puerto Natales, in southern Chile.

One of the protected Magallanes Region and Chilean Antarctica areas, pristine lakes, remarkable scenery, the magnificent Salto Grande Waterfall, and inquisitive local wildlife awaits.

4. Volcano Villarrica

The arduous ascent of Volcano Villarrica (Vulcán Villarrica) at dawn presents a breathtaking landscape, but not as stunning as the deepened vibrant sunset colours…

…on the descent, of one of Chile’s most active volcanoes. This memorable trek is not for the fainthearted.

  1. I always like your posts, however you choose to do them. You really visit your destinations thoroughly! I feel a bit of a fraud because although I have been to a few places, half the time I was rushing through on my way to somewhere else or wasting time time in airports standing by for flights. When you are in Bangkok with a space-available ticket and all flights are full, you can feel a long way from home and a bit freaked out because you are due back at work in NY. I did go to Chile twice, both times coming or going to Antarctica. We sailed down the Beagle Channel and actually landed via rubber boats on Cape Horn (1st tourists to do so, we were told) It was bitterly cold sailing past all the glaciers and it was stunning. We went via Puerto Monte both times, probably the windiest place I have ever been. I remember wild lupins. Would love to have spent more time in Chile. Beautiful country. Your photos are amazing. Brings back great memories.

    1. Another amazing snippet of your life right there and thank you for sharing it here.

      We tried to get to Antarctica from Ushuaia but got down there a few days before the boats stopped but they stopped early that year due to bad weather, so decided on a day sail on the Beagle Channel – fantastic. Absolutely loved Ususia and stayed a couple of weeks.
      I have a few older posts on Chile that may bring back more memories. 😉

      Thank you for your kind feedback as always Carolyn.


  2. Four important points of Chile, well photographed! Have desert ones from Arica? Where in Santiago is the street scene? Providencia? near Cerro S. Cristóbal? I’d like a short paragraph of detail about each photo. A small detail: volcán is the noun in Spanish. Please check out my recent posts on snow, orchids and luminaries. Gracias.

    1. Thank you, Rebecca. No desert photos as I didn’t make it to Arica.
      My partner checked the map and it was in Barrio Bellavista, on the way to Cerro S. Cristóbal.
      So the detail for each photo wasn’t enough? I’ll change that grammar. 😉
      Will pop over now and thank you for your feedback.
