Patagonia begins in the Lake District of Chile and Argentina and encompasses all the land up to Tierra del Fuego, the southernmost tip of South America. This wild land has been shaped over millennia by a rugged coastline pounded by an unrelenting ocean and pushed from either side to form the colossal spine of the Andes Mountains.
Argentina’s slice of Patagonia is home to abundant wildlife and weather-worn landscapes. Travel to the Atlantic coast to see migrating marine life including Orcas, Blue Whales, and Southern Right Whales that gather in the cold waters of the Chubut Province between May and December. Further south, the drama continues as the Andes peaks reach precipitous heights and age-old glaciers creak and groan in their shadow. Patagonia is an excellent region for mountain hiking of all levels with 4×4 backup for those who want to take it easy or overnight camping options to satisfy adventure-seekers.
Flyfishers looking for the perfect fly fishing holiday will enjoy casting into the crystal clear water of Patagonian rivers brimming with wild trout. Northern Patagonia is a more gentle expanse of pine forests mirrored above indigo lakes laced with easy walking trails that lead through forests with stunning views of the lakes below. Whether you choose an adrenaline-filled adventure in the south of Patagonia or relaxation in the north, the raw beauty of this region is sure to rejuvenate mind, body and soul.
