Seydisfjördur to Myvatn part 1

August 25, 2016

Best morning in Iceland! We drive from our fjördur to Borgarfjördur Eystri. It’s a super tiny village (luckily though including a petrol station, it would have been a long way to push the car back to town) with about 30’000 pairs of nesting puffins. There is a small harbor with a viewing platform where you […]

Skaftafell to Seydisfj̦rdur Рpart 1

August 23, 2016

To avoid the rain in Skaftafell we drive another 8km and pitch our tent in Svinafell, another nice campsite and without rain. The weather is very local here, especially close to the glaciers. Luckily it stopped raining in Skaftafell overnight and we get back there in the morning for the walk to the Skaftafellsjökull glacier […]

Torres del Paine – the W hike

July 30, 2015

the famous hike around Torres del Paine , the “W hike” due to its shape is about 90km long, takes 5 days of moderate hike, sure it could be done in 4 as well. the treks are so nicely marked i really cannot understand why some hikers had a guide with them. anyone that likes […]

Torres del Paine

July 22, 2015

i’ve been obsessed with Torres del Paine ever since childhood when i read “Toate panzele sus!” (sails up) with Speranta crew’s(Hope’s) adventures around the Tierra del Fuego, the name was just inspiring. some years later when i’ve seen a sunset picture of the cuernos i knew i will end up there sooner or later, even […]

Laguna Los Tres

July 18, 2015

the trail from El Chalten to Laguna Los Tres is the most popular hike in the region. the hike is pretty decent, 5 hrs each way with a total altitude difference of just little over 1’000m through an amazing landscape…that’s how is advertised, when you have to do the hike in pouring rain that even […]

home to 47 big glaciers and 200 small ones Los Glaciares National Park is a must see in Argentina. we took a ferry ride, full day to see some of the biggest glaciers and what a sight that is. The size of these glaciers puts the european ones i’ve seen to utter shame. the most […]

El Chalten

July 1, 2015

the home of the Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre hikes, El Chalten lays few hours away from El Calafate. along the route you get to see the Fitz Roy closer and closer driving the last kilometres in a agonising slow speed, believing after each next curve the famous view will lay ahead. the weather hasn’t […]

Mythen (grosse und kleine)

June 6, 2015

last weekend was the first hike of the season and when reached this place i thought it would make a nice picture, luckily the farmer was kind enough to let us camp on his ground. It was a rough night with a…hmm…best described as dry storm, now we know the tent can take heavy winds

Day 36 – Diving in Bohol

June 13, 2013

the parent trigger fish is known to defend the surroundings of its nest even from divers, by no means this is a little fish, its bite can be rather painful, the guide needed to jump in my defence as of a wired reason it targeted me as potential predator…
