Outpost, the last connection to civilization

Experience Chile’s first off-the-grid, pop-up camp found within the vast remoteness of Patagonia’s wilderness. Upscape launches Outpost with private and group excursions in Aysén, a sparsely populated area with vast glaciers, fjords and snow-capped mountains, and Maule Valley, one of the oldest wine-producing regions in Chile. The inaugural Outpost debuts along Patagonia’s Río Jeinimeni in February 2019 and the Maule region in October 2018 with more to come.

Despite the vast remoteness, Outpost guests are surrounded by comfort and accompanied by specialty guides intimately familiar with the land. Each camp accommodates up to 16 people in private, furnished tents and offers a relaxing base for trekking, fly fishing, horseback riding, paddling, and photography classes.

Travellers can book Patagonia and Maule locations as private Outposts or join small-group excursions. Trips include specialty guides, a private cook (daily food and drink) and lodging. For more information about off-the-grid Outpost adventures with Upscape, visit upscapetravel.com/outpost

Switzerland: Hepburn and Givenchy on display

A new exhibition about the long friendship and fashion partnership between Audrey Hepburn and the legendary fashion designer, Hubert de Givenchy, is on view through September 9, 2018 at Fondation Bolle in Morges. Audrey Hepburn: Entre films, vie privée et amitié. Givenchy, one of the most eminent designers of the 20th and 21st centuries, was the favorite designer of Hepburn, and he dressed her in such classic films as Funny Face, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Charade. The film star and the haute couture legend are celebrated at this museum housed in an 18th century mansion in Morges, the lakeside town where Hepburn spent the last three decades of her life. There are original film posters, a documentary on view, magazine covers and articles from the time and unpublished Givenchy sketches and large-scale photographs of Hepburn modelling the designer’s creations.
