It was truly motivating to have the opportunity to redesign an excursions operation we were all familiar with, albeit in its previous guise. We got down to work on our Adventures and Experiences unit with our batteries fully charged and a vast collective experience gained at several of the most important hotels in the country. We are back where we belong. While we enjoyed the initial spending spree, selecting the very best equipment for our kayak, canoe, horseback, and nature excursions, we all knew in advance that the biggest challenge was yet to come; to install the new toys and cut trails through the dense and tangled Valdivian forest. Restoring the network of trails within the Reserve was always going to be a gargantuan task, but our team of eighteen people was up for the challenge. We worked for three solid months rebuilding the wooden infrastructure that would allow us to connect Mari Mari’s rugged geography. Wooden walkways, railings, stairs, and bridges slowly started to appear along the trails and today they allow us to observe the beautiful forest at close range and get some amazing photos of its flora and fauna.
