This extremely diverse South American country stretches around 4.000 km top to bottom spanning a mere 200 km from west to east. Especially outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers will be rewarded with tropical deserts, endless coastline, temperate lush forests, countless lakes and islands, impressing glaciers, fjords, mountains, rivers as well as active volcanoes. As border crossings with Argentina are uncomplicated, it is very easy to explore the
whole of one of the world's most famous trekking destinations called "Patagonia". The Carretera Austral is an incredibly beautiful road that leads for about 1.200 km all the way south from Puerto Montt to Villa O'Higgins. If you ask me, travelling along the Carretera Austral is one of the world's most scenic road trips! My personal highlights along the way (besides the road itself) are...
This large country stretches almost 3.500 km from Bolivia to the tip of South America. It offers a huge variety of landscapes, climate and vegetation zones. You can find Andean deserts, the southern hemisphere's highest mountain “Aconcagua”, Patagonian steppe, huge glaciers, the world's biggest waterfalls “Iguazú Falls” as well as the mighty capital Buenos Aires for shopping, cuisine, history and nightlife enthusiasts.
If you like trekking, then El Chaltén and the Fitz Roy Massif inside Los Glaciares National Park should definitely be on your bucket list.

There are many campsites across the area which make multi-day hikes a great option to explore the area away from the tourist masses.

Madagascar is the 4th largest island in the world and extremely diverse in landscapes and people. Because it was separated from the African continent by tectonic activity millions of years ago, much of its flora and fauna – for example the lemurs – can only be found here. Due
to limited infrastructure and most probably the world's worst roads, it is difficult to get around. There is no coastal road surrounding the whole island, so you might have to get back to the centrally-located capital Antananarivo before heading for another part of the island. Camping is allowed in many places of interest and many hostels offer spots to pitch up your tent in their backyard. Spend at least six weeks on the island to experience a bit of everything. I have travelled Madagascar for five weeks and focused on the western and eastern part.
