Admire Patagonia landscapes, hike trails, cruise the fjords, stay at wonderful lodges, to reveal immense glaciers, chiseled rocky mountains and windswept forests.
Patagonia is the name given to the southern tip of South America, with no defined northern boundary, but reaching the Chilean Lake District and the Colorado River in Argentina. For lovers of the great outdoors, few destinations can match the scale and beauty of Patagonia. In both Argentina and Chile you will find towering glaciers, sparkling fjords and lakes, chiseled snow-capped Andean peaks and verdant sub-polar forests. Hike along glorious trails in Torres del Paine, Mount Fitzroy, El Chalten, Bariloche and Los Alerces. Board an expedition cruise through the myriad of islands and channels of Tierra del Fuego to the fabled Cape Horn. Explore on foot, by car or with pedal power in the Lake District.
This mythical place is thought to have been given its name by the 16th century explorer Ferdinand Magellan, who labelled the large indigenous Tehuelche people he found here “Patagones”, in reference to their big feet. It has been the destination of epic voyages by intrepid explorers, Robert Fitzroy and Charles Darwin, and dramatic stories of the sad fate of the indigenous tribes and Jemmy Button. Patagonia attracted settlers fleeing from Europe and more recently, Patagonia has been the subject of writers, painters and wildlife documentary makers and has inspired beautifully shot films, set against a backdrop of magnificent terrain and lonely roads cutting poignantly through the empty expanses.
Journeying through Patagonia is a treat for all the senses; the crashing sound of icebergs detaching from glaciers, the herby aroma of freshly brewed yerba mate, the succulent taste of tender barbecued lamb and the awesome sight of some of the world’s most spectacular scenery unfolding before your eyes. The evocative names alone are enough to stir up thoughts of epic adventure into the unknown; Tierra del Fuego, Land of Fire, Beagle Channel, Cape Horn, Glacier Alley, Drake Passage, Straits of Magallan.
