Documentary ยป On Chileโ€™s National Route 7, the Carretera Austral, into the heart of Patagonia

Deutsche Welle (DW) Documentary via YouTube ยป

A trip along Chileโ€™s National Route 7, the Carretera Austral, takes us into the stunning wilderness of Patagonia – a place that many German emigrants chose as their new home almost a century ago.

The Carretera Austral is straddled by mountain ranges, primeval forests, fjords, volcanoes and a huge ice field. It has taken decades to carve its way through the almost impassable terrain – even now a lot of traffic is forced to take a detour across the border into Argentina. The military dictator Augusto Pinochet made the construction of the road a national priority in the 1970s, sending thousands of soldiers to the region to work under the most adverse conditions. One of the last surviving members of Pinochet’s junta, former military police chief Rodolfo Stange, talks about the roadโ€™s strategic importance for the regime.

German marine biologist Vreni Hรคussermann tells us about a catastrophe in one of the Patagonian fjords – an event that underlines how economic expansion along the route has adversely affected the natural environment in southern Chile. On our journey we meet descendants of German emigrants who found a new home in Patagoniaโ€™s remote vastness after the First World War. An insight into the past and present of this unique region.

The best countries for long distance cycling

150 travellers who completed epic cross-continental cycling journeys were surveyed.

Alee Denham at CyclingAbout.com writes ยปย 

Each of the 150 cyclists got three votes to cast, and I simply tallied up the results. In the end, 80 different countries were favourited, which is pretty cool because that means most corners of the world have something, for somebody.

These are their top picks for the best countries for long-distance cycling ยป

Video ยป Wild Patagonia

Suzette Barnett ยป

My adventure in Patagonia has been an incredible one, primarily for the vast landscapes and diversity of the regionโ€™s scenery with glimpses of every season within a period of just 13 days.

Guided by a National Geographic Expeditions Leader my time there was spent hiking, filming and shooting the time-lapses now used to create to this short film which has been graced by a stunning instrumental from musical geniuses. Please allow me four minutes of your time and turn your sound on.

I hope you can feel what I felt.
