Occupying the southernmost reaches of South America, straddling both Chile and Argentina, Patagonia is a region of staggering beauty and environmental importance that has long captured the imagination of travelers, artists and explorers. Sparsely populated, mostly wilderness and shamelessly photogenic, this is truly a nature lover’s dream destination.
Get ready for imposing glaciers, vast ice-fields and the rugged snowcapped peaks of the Patagonian Andes; lush forests, majestic fjords and abundant wildlife—above all else, a visit to Patagonia is primarily for walking, trekking or sailing your way around the region’s spectacular collection of national parks and World Heritage Listed wilderness areas.
Hike among the raw, majestic beauty of Chile’s Torres Del Paine, possibly the world's most magnificent national park—an unrivalled landscape of jagged peaks and brilliant blue lakes; and marvel at the mountains, glaciers and stunning frozen landscapes of Los Glaciares National Park, home to the Patagonian ice cap and the colossal Perito Moreno Glacier.
Watch for southern right whales, orcas, elephant seals and sea lions on Argentina’s striking Península Valdés; experience the breathtaking mountain scenery of the Lakes District as you travel between Argentina and Chile; and soak up the fairytale beauty of Bariloche, an impossibly gorgeous lakeside city surrounded by mountains and alpine forests.
Enjoy culture, nightlife and otherworldly landscapes in Ushuaia, the world’s most southerly city; and discover the Balmaceda & Serrano Glaciers as you trace the footsteps of famous explorers and sail through the Ultima Esperanza Sound and past the Strait of Magellan.
