Patagonia is the southern part of Argentina and Chile.
The best know part of Patagonia is Torres del Paine National Park in Chile which is home to a healthy population of puma, flocks of guanacos – and the two famous trekking routes, the W and the O. But Patagonia is much more, and we are proud of our close collaboration with a group of professionals who are developing the almost unknow, but extremely beautiful Aisén region. While almost everybody heads to Torres del Paine, you be among the very few, who treks and sails in Aisén. The landscape is covered with mountains, forests, fiords, and lakes. Another option is to sail the Chilean fiords.
Most of the Argentinian part of Patagonia is covered by a dry, enormous bush carpet. At the Atlantic coast in the north, the Peninsula Valdés is worth visiting. Penguins, guanacos and ñandus live on land, and between July and December the southern right whale gives birth to their calves. It is a great place for whale watching. In the south western corner, the Glacier Nacional Park holds the Perito Moreno glacier.
In 1833-34 the English naturalist Charles Darwin spent more than a year exploring Patagonia.
