The Atacama Desert has been receiving a fair amount of media attention recently, thanks to the miniscule amount of rain which has given life to a carpet of pink flowers. These flowers may not rear their gorgeous heads for very long, but this desert, the driest of its kind on our planet, has a lot more to offer in terms of breathtaking beauty.

For traveling foodies, the pleasure of perusing a foreign menu, ordering from a street vendor's unusual snack selection, or savoring a new dish's unique flavors is the very heartbeat and reason for travel. Sharing meals is such an integral part of the travel experience that the very names of many countries evoke images of food almost immediately - just try whispering sweet nothings of "Italy, India, Japan, France, Vietnam, Peru, and Greece..." to a food traveler and challenge their mouth not to water! But how do travelers with dietary concerns fare when on the road?
Our new tours in the Atacama Desert really are coming thick and fast. Our latest offering is possibly the one we are most excited about here at Cascada Expediciones - Capture Atacama - Photo Tour. This tour combines both a local guide experienced in hiking through this remote wilderness, with a professional photographer to ensure you are in the optimum positions for taking your shots.
We are excited to announce the release of our brand new Epic Atacama Multi Sport Adventure! This is an active escape to the driest non-polar desert on the planet, where you will be able to hike, cycle and ride horses through this incredible, moonscape environment. Since the huge success of our Epic Patagonia Multi Sport Adventure, we have been working hard to ensure we can offer our guests the opportunity to be just as adventurous, in a totally contrasting environment. In order to optimise your experience (and the price!), our team helps to make sure your group is of the perfect amount of travelers. Trip depatures dates are every Sunday all year round possible and depending on the groups traveller size you receive up to 45% discount.
In Patagonia time seems to fly as fast the wind, and we cannot believe most of our partners and friends from ATTA (Adventure Travel Tourism Association) and ATLAS (Active Travel Latin America) have already gone home. Now we have to wait one more year to get together again – this time, with different lakes and mountains. Yes, we’ll be there next year, in Alaska, for another Adventure Travel World Summit!
What's it like to visit Torres del Paine?
We wanted to know, and so turned to some of the best: our guests.
Travelers' Tales are stories told by our guests, verbatim, about their experience in Torres del Paine alongside other hikers in the wilds of Chilean Patagonia. This week, we're proud to share two travelers' stories in the first of our series of Tales.
All Chile’s major tourism destinations are operating normally, according to a preliminary assessment made by the Undersecretary of Tourism in conjunction with the National Tourism Service throughout the country. On September 16, 2015 an 8.4-magnitude earthquake affected northern Chile.
While we don't always shout it from the rooftops, we do have a secret confession to make and why do savvy hikers visit Patagonia in Spring?
Ecocamp Patagonia is launching a brand new documentary video series, "EcoCamp Travelers' Tales". Working directly with our guests, four upcoming videos aim to describe the opportunity EcoCamp travelers have to forge a more in-depth connection with nature (and often themselves) in Torres del Paine.
Communications Manager, Stefan Urlaub, highlights the importance of storytelling for Experiential Travel companies and the transformational ability of EcoCamp Patagonia trips:
