September 28th, 2018 Roadwork Carretera Austral

The carretera austral is temporaly closed due to construction works going on for improving and paving the road. There is a „desvio“ going to Lago Laparent for 27 Kilometers through beautiful scenery. The road ends up at a bridge (5 tons, 2,5 meter high) coming from the north. The road is smaller but very nice and easy to drive. You come along at several lakes and farms and cristal clear water. You even can see some condors. The R7 opens again at 5pm. Safe travels.

It is still the same but we drove it with our Defender the whole way. We did arranged with all potholes...;–)

August 12th, 2018 Altai Oasis

Outstanding welcoming host around Simón and his team. Perfect, lovely place – the best we have seen in town as a campground. We came with our Defender with a cabin here – there a some spaces just in the beginning of the campground. You can walk from there to the town within 15 Minutes. They also offers laundry service, the restaurant is excellent (we have creamy guacamole and some awesome T–Bone–Steaks from the Altoplato) and WiFi is working great in the restaurant. They also speaks German. Soooo happy to be here....

July 30th, 2018 360 Degree top Mountain View

Just on top of a hill with a small track with an overwhelming view to catch the stars in the nighttime. Not seen from the road. 4x4 is an advantage but not necessary. High clearance is not needed at all. Just enjoy the view!

July 30th, 2018 Mecanico Alberto

Our seal was damaged and they helped us very quickly and friendly and professional. He organized the special seal (Defender) within 15 Minutes for us and implemented it by later than 7pm. It was really great to get back on the road about that quickly. We appreciate this service very much and it was a fair price for the value and working time.
