Hector Maturana, a truck driver from Chile, takes great pride in being one of those who clocked up the highest number of kilometres in his job. From the southern-most part of Patagonia to the capital of Santiago, he covers over 3000 km - several times a month! – in order to deliver peat. The precious ‘brown gold’ is highly sought after by European garden centres. A considerable part of the long journey is made by sea, on board the ‘Magallan’, sailing for three days through the Patagonian fjords. Fares are not exactly cheap and therefore, only the trailer is being loaded. Hector has another truck waiting for him at the other end to complete the rest of the journey. In fact, the ‘Road to the End of the World’ runs on asphalt as well as on water taking us on a voyage of discovery through some of the most beautiful lands in the world. The ‘Eighth Wonder of the World’ as Hector likes to call it. On the journey between Punta Arenas, the country’s southern-most city, and Santiago he feels like a pioneer of modern times, just like the great navigators who discovered this continent.
