    Characteristic houses of Chiloe, los palafitos. It reminds the Norwegian rorbu don't you think?

      Chiloe is well-known for its wooden churches built during the Jesuit period using the expertise of Chilean carpenters.
      Some of them are on the Unesco list.
      Here are the churches of Chonchi and Vilupulli.

            Wonderful thread and certainly a wonderful journey - brings back so many memories of my own cruises in that area.

            The architecture is so interesting and I could watch images like this for a very long time - there is an endless amount of detail in each shot.

            Like for example - the one above stood out to me - that building near the centre of the image has got to be a local church or something.

            Looking through these images, it makes me wonder what it is like LIVING there - in those houses.

            PS: The glacier is amazing - together with two Antarctica cruises, glaciers are amongst the most beautiful things I have ever seen.

              Yes J-O it was a wonderful Journey. With the Chilean fjords I have discovered the " Norway of the South". Different vegetation, different way of life of course but so exciting!

            #22
            Yes, I remember thinking the exactly same thing as you: a Norway away from Norway, in South America and with slightly more exotic vegetation (and architecture).

            Would love to see if you have any images taken on board your vessel, and of your vessel in general. The ship I believe is really beautifully designed.

              Dear J-O if you want to see pictures of the interior of Le Soleal you can look at my previous voyage aboard

              In addition, few new photos of the ship in Chile:

                The wooden buildings made me think of Norway too ...and the knitwear in #16/4! And then the fjords and the skyscapes. I have been keeping up with your fascinating thread, Yves - it just seems as if those superb glacier images rendered me speechless!

                I also very much like the photo of the ship in #24/2 - both as a lovely image in itself, and as an illustration of the zodiac operations.

                But your fine portrait #24/5 naturally deserves a special mention - and how clever to think of including the live bow webcam!

                    Thanks for the link from before - completely forgotten about that report.

                    These ships are really beautifully designed ships - and it's so apparent that the French are truly motivated and proud of their maritime heritage and interest. This is something I feel Norwegians have lost to some degree.

                      I don't think so J-O. Our maritime patrimony (I mean old ships still alive) is very poor. For instance we have only one three-master from the old days of the cap Horn period. And Nothing from the great cod fishing in Newfoundland. And don't forget we didn't find a solution to keep the beautiful M/S France on our flag.

                        You may be right there. From my perspective, it looks like the little France has left, is highly treasured.

                        France and Norway may not be so different at all, when it comes to our maritime heritage. I'm utterly disappointed with how the Norwegians are turning their backs to the oceans.

                            All very reminiscent of my trip in 2002 to Argentina and Chile. Perito Moreno does not superficially seem at all affected by climate instability; and I wonder how the ice cap in Chile's western range is coping - it is/was the third largest in the world. Thanks for the photos - stunning.
