You can go your whole life in puma country and never even see one. In this location I was able to not only see, but have long photo opportunities with eight different cats in four days.
We will stay in Torres del Paine National Park in Chile. This is a spectacular photographic destination in its own right. Most of our puma tracking will be on a 17,000 acre private ranch adjacent to the park. The pumas are the main focus, but there are also photogenic guanacos, rheas, Andean condors, flamingos and dramatic mountain scenery.
DISCOUNT: Save $500 when you sign up for both my Big Cats of the Americas tours at the same time ( Jaguars of the Pantanal & this one). This ALL-INCLUSIVE tour costs $6795.00.

About the Workshop
This is an active workshop full of exploring the plateaus, meadows, forests and rivers of the Columbia Gorge. Well walk trails of various levels of exertion, but we are not sprinting to the top of a mountain. More like a leisurely walk with numerous breaks to photograph the myriad wildflowers that will be blooming. Some of them will require you to sit down for a few minutes to thoroughly photograph and umm catch your breath if need be. We wont be breaking any trails, some of the ones we've chosen are even paved! The hikers guides rate all of them as easy, I would give them a photographers scale of easy to moderate with one that is kinda tough, but has a glorious payoff.
