Parque Pumalín, Chile

Oct 11, 2017 - National Geographic Explorer


Early this morning, the National Geographic Explorer made her way into a long narrow fjord, deep into the coastal mountains of Chile. As the light came up we could see that we were surrounded by beautiful snow covered peaks and, wonder of wonders in a temperate rainforest, bright sunshine and blue skies.  Our destination was Parque Pumalín, one of the beautiful reserves created by the American conservationist, Douglas Thompkins.
