  Flying The Atacama Desert
Iquique, Chile, November 2011
By Ned Israelsen and Chuck Savall
Paragliding above Cerro Toro plateau, Tiliviche, Pisagua, Atacama Desert, ChilePalo Buque paragliding takeoff, Iquique, Atacama Desert, Chile
  I bailed first as the thermal weakened, and found myself above an amazing plateau of a hundred undulating little peaks and dips stretching half a mile north and west. The late afternoon sun emphasized the colorful, jagged texture. The plateau sat atop a point that jutted west from the mountains all the way to the sea. I circled slowly, entranced by the beauty below. As I gained altitude bit by bit, an idea began to form. Could I go up the coast by flying over the plateau? Did I dare? What if I had to land in the middle of those badlands?... >>

  Last October Antofaya Expeditions leaded BBC Top Gear team through Andean Altiplano to hights over 17,000ft and then down trough the driest desert on the planet - The Atacama and to the coast of the Pacific. It is the latest in the line of great Top Gear specials. This time Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are dropped deep in the Bolivian rainforest armed only with three shabby 4x4s. What follows is their most extraordinary journey to date. They attempt to drive from the heart of Bolivia to the coast of Chile, encountering local drug lords, the debilitating effects of high altitude and the terrifying sheer drops of the infamous Death Road along the way. The show is going to air on December 27th, 2009 around the world for millions of avid watchers.

  Expedition Explorers II was Antofaya's biggest adventure yet with first descents of glacial run-off rivers, visits to five very remote glaciers, some visited only by a handful of people and two that may never have been visited by anyone and are yet unnamed. We trekked across 30km (19 miles) of one of the most pristine and isolated beaches the mind could imagine and fought our way through thick brush and Patagonian jungle. We camped in front of glaciers... >>
