In January and February 2018 we traveled to South America mainly to explore the flora and volcanoes of Central Chile. As has become our habit we took our Advanced Elements kayaks with us. The Sport version has become our favourite for long haul travel. At 16kg and packed in a bag, it can be transported at no extra cost on planes and thereafter buses. In Chile we then traveled in hired cars. We could choose the smallest and cheapest vehicles, as the kayaks fit easily into a small car together with camping gear. In this way we could not only explore the forests and country with its volcanos, deserts and forests, but the kayaks gave us an extra dimension with the huge range of lakes, estuaries and fjords that Chile has.
