Who is the best in the world? We would like it to be us! If you have had a trip of a lifetime down at EcoCamp Patagonia, Cascada's fully sustainable glamping experience in Torres del Paine, then you can enter Conde Nast's Reader's Choice Awards.
Venture into the unspoiled Torres del Paine National Park and you’re sure to see flocks, herds, colonies and packs of animals that you’ve never seen before, but it can be difficult to know exactly what you’re looking at and where to search for the more elusive creatures. That’s why a guided safari of Patagonia’s wildlife is the perfect way to see some of the plants and animals that lend Patagonia its unique feel.
It’s a glorious day. The sun is shining and the air is cool. You have just arrived in Chile’s capital of Santiago, and you are excited to get out and start exploring.
While you can just as easily walk around the city’s compact sights, here at Cascada we want you to have an experience that’s just that little bit more exciting. Bike riding ticks that box because it allows you to cover ground fast and stop when you like, making it much easier communication with the local people, many of whom are now choosing to bike their way around the city too.
Traveling overseas can be a headache at the best of times, but when a hiking adventure in Patagonia is on the menu, trip logistics can cause a veritable migraine.
It’s normal to have questions when organizing a hiking trip in Patagonia, and here at Cascada we’ve heard 'em all. That’s why we’ve put together this handy little cheat sheet – to help you unfog your mind and get excited about your Patagonia adventure!
So you´ve decided to realize a lifelong dream and come to Chile, and you want to see as much of it as possible, right? Instead of skipping the interior in favour of the jewels to the north and extreme south (the Atacama Desert and Torres del Paine), why not linger for a bit longer and get right off the beaten track? Chile is a long skinny country that has a surprising amount of natural wonders along its length to reward even the most travel-weary of travellers. Let's have a look at our top five places to visit between the capital of Santiago and Patagonia.
Sunlight filters through branches touched by green. The wind sings, edged with birdsong and the rhythmic calling of insects. The air, once brushed over you, is crisp and cool while all around the colours are freshly washed. As you push yourself onwards, you feel each breath fill up your lungs and each muscle pull and stretch in a way they never did before. Moments are exquisite. Suddenly - a sound. Up ahead, there! The graceful puma, a mountain lion all sleek strength, grace and muscle. For a brief second your eyes meet.
