We went backpacking for four months through Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina. An amazing trip, with lots of great experiences. Traveling with small kids was a door-opener, it was easier to talk with the local people, and people were very helpful. We still travel outside the normal tourist routes, and it wasn’t a problem with the kids.
Here are some highlights in pictures:
Tiuri og Liva both happy climbers, we also have our own equipment and climbing trees at home.
Fascinating…… to see a cowboy work with his dogs.
Lars on a morning run up to a lake in 4400 m north Peru.
A Canadian couple own a bed and breakfast , ‘The lazy dog inn‘. The money they earned went towards the local people. One of the projects was a local school. Tiuri and Liva went to that school the three days we were there, great experience.
Liva og Tiuri are feeding evening dinner. 🙂
We went to visit Carlos og Nancy, and had the traditional Peruvian dish guinea pig. Great for us and our kids to see how they live and how ‘many’ toys they have in Peru.
Kids work from an early age, here is at kid on the way with two donkeys and a pig.
Boat trip to the poor man’s Galapagos Island, Islas Ballestas in Peru
We charted a little plane, for the four of us to fly over the fantastic Nazca lines.
Many places in Peru you will see Inca ruins, incredible how they could build with the mega big stones.
Close to Machu Picchu, we went on a hiking trip. This long ladder had to be climbed, a nerve racking climb.
Lars had two days off, and climbed Mt. Chachani in 6075 m. A big achievement for Lars.
Breakfast after the first night, on our three days hike through Colca Canyon
Lake Titicaca i ca. 4000 m.
We drove three days in this 4×4, in the southwest corner of Bolivia
Saw many Flamingoes
And a fantastic salt desert.
In Chile we bought a tent, so that we had an alternative sleeping option in the high season.
Our hostel owner in Valaparaiso took us with him on a day trip.
The highest geysers in the world, Le ratio at 4200 m. and the third largest in the world
Akili family, the highlight of the trip, we travel together for three weeks. Have a look at there website
We rented a 4×4 camper in Santiago to go to Punta Arenas in Chile, on the first day we got stuck. It tock almost an hour before we were free again. Good teamwork!
The kids had a great time together with two boys six years old and two girls four years of age, perfect. Photo Fabrice
Perito Moreno glacier, super fantastic experiences
Most of our nights in the camper and tent were free and in beautiful locations.
Lots of dirt roads in the south of Argentina and Chile
Another great camp
South Chile was one big nature experience after another
One of the views on our three day hike in Fitz Roy national park, Argentina
Fitz Roy NP, a place that we would like to come back to.
In Ushuaia, the most southern city in the world, we got snow.
The foxes were almost tame
We saw penguins on the southern point of south America
It was a great experience traveling down through South America, good food, nice people and awesome nature.
