I firmly believe that you don’t have to travel far to find adventure. Adventure is all around us, we just have to look for it.
That is especially true in Chile as due to the thinness of the country, you are always always close to both the mountains and the beach! One of the greatest local adventures I have found recently is Parque Aguas de San Ramon. It’s a 15 minute drive, or about thirty minutes on public transport from my flat.
The park has four different trekking routes that you can follow leading to lush green, snow capped mountain views, waterfalls and views over the city too. None of them are difficult treks as the majority of them are on flat land, making it the perfect place to spend the day in nature with friends and a picnic. So much so, that I went twice in the space of a month and also loved to see how the landscape had changed in that space of time.
The first time I went was at the end of summer. Lauren, Carlos and two other of our friends packed up a picnic and our hiking boots, not knowing what to expect.
We were in for a lovely treat, just follow the path…Looking behind you to admire the view over the city (and of course, ignoring that line of smog)Stop for a picnic and devour the juiciest pomegranate!
Then just a month later, at the beginning of Autumn following a few raining days, I returned to be greeted with even lusher green, snowy mountains and the most beautiful colours of Autumn.
What are the local gems where you live?
