Sparsely populated and ruggedly beautiful, Patagonia is located at the southern tip of South America and is shared by Chile and Argentina.The region is vast, covering 240 000 square kilometres, and over half of this destination is a protected wilderness area ideal for hiking and exploring. The south of Patagonia is home to Chile’s iconic Parque Nacional Torres del Paine, renowned for its rugged horn-shaped peaks of the Cuernos del Paine and pristine sand-coloured lowlands where the huaso countrymen, or baqueano, practice age-old cattle herding traditions.
In the north, enormous ice fields flank brilliant blue glaciers whilst fjords and deep channels usher penguins to their waters. Not only does this breathtaking region feature a rich entanglement of rainforest and mountain ranges that stretch across the horizon, but it is also the official gateway to Antarctica, the earth’s southernmost continent.
