Chile’s hot topic

It started with a dream to create an epic road trip route through Chile, con­nect­ing its sen­sa­tional na­tional parks while also pro­tect­ing them for the fu­ture. And fi­nally, af­ter 40 years, the Patag­o­nian Route of Parks is open: a 2,800km trail through 17 parks, travers­ing rain­forests, moun­tains and glaciers from Puerto Montt down to Cape Horn. The route was the vi­sion of late US bil­lion­aire Dou­glas Tomp­kins (founder of The North Face) and his wife, Kris­tine, de­voted con­ser­va­tion­ists who do­nated vast amounts of land to Chile’s gov­ern­ment in or­der get the project off the ground. We can’t wait to hit the road... ru­tade­lospar­ques.org
