Patagonia -May 18-25, 2021- Deposit


Join me and my world class guides in Patagonia for a week long expedition to photograph the elusive and beautiful Puma that roam free and wild in and around Torres del Paine NP. We will stay at an upscale lodge with every amenity available at our finger tips. Work hard, play harder! This is a one of a kind destination workshop with our focus on Puma. We will spend some time during the early mornings and evenings to photograph the majestic landscapes that are Patagonia.

Participants will fly to the airport in Santiago, Chile (SCL) and take a connecting flight to Punta Arenas (PUQ). We will be picked up by our hotel- these transfers are included. It is a four ½ hour drive (we do make a stop for food and restroom facilities) some of the hotels do not include this pricey transfer. Once we reach our hotel we will check in and everything will be included, all meals, open bar, bilingual guides, transfers to and from the park, horseback riding if you want- or simply just photographing the horses. Anyone wishing to bring a spouse may, the price would be the same as there will be other excursions and treks available if they do not want to join the group. We will photograph early mornings and when the Puma are around— also in the evening. Free time can be enjoyed relaxing at the award winning hotel and taking advantage of some of the hotel’s amenities, downloading and reviewing images or simply enjoying the grand view from our hotel.

 Accommodations: Explora Patagonia~Hotel Salto Chico

Our lodge/hotel is located right in the heart of the extraordinary Torres del Paine National Park in central Patagonia, located on the banks of the Salto Chico waterfall. It affords an excellent view of the unique Paine Massif and two of the three impressive torres, or towers, which give the park its name. Situated on a 7.4-acre site, Explora Patagonia has 49 comfortable rooms, all with captivating views. The sophisticated design incorporates native lenga wood and cypress brought from the Guaitecas Archipelago, while the floor is made of almond wood. Each room has a small living area, hydromassage bath and beds designed for deep, pleasurable sleep after a day of exploration. Our hotel is also the only lodge in the area with its own horses.
