15 – Down To Deepest Patagonia

Tapio took his own way down south from Futa, going exploring without a kayak, and Brit Sandra Hyslop filled the spare seat for some Southern Chile exploring. Driving south through Argentina was a stark contrast to Chile, arid desert surrounding us for hundreds of miles, wild flamingos and ostriches, and even some tarmac roads!   […]

9 – Hueinahue & Palguin Festival

Some more driving around, and everything was super low, so we decided to go check out the low water section of the Rio Hueinahue. The river was short, but was a good one to do with the low water levels, fun boulder-strewn rapids with some narrow slots and tight lines, and some harder bits too […]
