The small company specialized in Inclusive Tourism “Wheel the World”, released a short documentary that tells the story of two special guests traveling to Patagonia Verde, in southern Chile.
The documentary shows the trip of two people with reduced mobility to Chaitén and Futaleufú. They toured the trails at the Pumalín Douglas Tompkins National Park and learned about the city of Chaitén and the eruption of the volcano in 2008. They also experienced sailing in Kayak at the Santa Bárbara beach and rafting on the Futaleufú River.
Also, Wheel the World held Inclusive Tourism talks, open to the community, at the Tourism Office of Chaitén and at the Municipality of Futaleufú. There, the company explained the work they do nationally and internationally. Their goal was to enable and promote inclusive tourism activities, raise awareness, and inspire with stories and experiences. In these talks, the attendees asked different questions and had the opportunity to occupy the joëlette chair and take small tours with it.
The documentary focused on the experience of two people, Lali from Copiapó, and “el Dani”, a young Argentinian who lives in Futaleufú for 3 years. Lali has reduced vision that she will gradually lose, and Daniel is in a wheelchair.
This trip was led by the following institutions: Ruta Patagonia 7, World Patagonia, Natour, Cabañas Los Avellanos, Aerocord, Conaf, Oficina de Turismo de Chaitén, Municipalidad de Futaleufú and the FNDR program “Patagonia Verde” of Sernatur. They also had the support of Misiones de Rengo and Columbia.
