Packrafting Rio Palena – Rivers of Patagonia

We packrafted 170km (105miles) of crystal clear turquoise waters of Palena river. Right from the Patagonian Andes to the Pacific ocean. The river winds trough canyons surrounded by snowy peaks and volcanoes. The river beaches have white sands and plenty of space for camping. Sometimes it felt like the boat was suspended in the air. The water was so clear that you could see every single pebble deep at the bottom. I believe it is the best multiday river run in Patagonia. It was an excellent warmup for this active Patagonian summer.

Can’t wait for Slovenia!

Slovenia - The Joy of XC -Chuck Savall from Colorado paragliding along Stol and Mursi ranges on an XC flights from Slovenia toward Italia, Soca Valley, Slovenia

I simply fell in love with Slovenia, its mountains, and above all flying there. Those who went there with me last year know what I am talking about. I could not resist and we are going back to Slovenia this year, to the European Alps. The dates are 20-29 June 2013. Last year we had excellent flying time with XC flights of over 100km. I can honestly say that it is one of the best flying location in the Alps and in Europe. We had in our group of 13 an international mix of male and female pilots from Chile, Peru, USA y Poland. I simply cannot wait to get there and if you want to join us please let me know. All the details of the trip can be found here.
