In my opinion this region of the World is the most beautiful that nature has created. It is as if the three kingdoms: plant, animal and mineral, have a pact from the past to try and be more impressive than each other, while this region has been lucky enough to be relatively unaffected by humans…
This area of Patagonia contains the "Southern Continental Ice Field", the majority of which is Chilean, and is the world’s third largest mass of land ice after the South Pole and Greenland. It is an immense ice field blocked by mountains, overflowing into Argentina to the East and into the sea to the west. It is an incomparable landscape from the last ice age that delights tourists every year.
Southern Chilean Patagonia is tough, austere and magical, and is the end of the world for anyone who has every dreamed of adventure.
Life is hard, often cold, often rainy, yet magnificent. The nature that exists there has been there throughout the millennia.
Patagonia is known for its winds, and the legend is not overstated, in fact it is not unusual to be unable to walk on foot for several days because of the strength of the wind. There is only one solution: wait.
Patagonia in southern Chile will never fail to disappoint regarding one point: the rain. In this part of the world it is relentless.
In the great south of Latin America, Patagonia is a place of extreme conjunctions. To the far south, between latitudes 40 and 50 are the famous oceans, the Atlantic and Pacific, which come together in the impassive eye of Cape Horn. There, they entangle in the Beagle Channel, straights of Magellan and countless other languages of the sea. Mythical places for navigation, lands almost untouched by human settlement.
The most important tourist attraction here is the Torres del Paine National Park, full of snow-capped mountains, lakes and glaciers, some more spectacular than others.
But there are also other attractions that await, such as a visit to the Penguin colonies, scenic cruises on the marine channels, watching the gauchos (cowboys) tending to their flocks as in old times, going fishing or simply enjoying the incredible feeling of being at the end of the world.
A trip through Patagonia, in these lands at the end of the world, where no-one knows when life begins or ends, will be for you, where you can ponder the words of Blaise Cendrars: "Only Patagonia remains, Patagonia suits my immense sadness".
Patagonia in all seasons menu. For example, according to the climate, from Bariloche, in Patagonia Argentina, it is possible to go to Puerto Montt, in Chile, crossing successively three lakes by boat, as did the Jesuits and the first German settlers. I offer a tour that leads to the Pacific Ocean. It is quite long, but the beauty of the sites - forests, volcanoes and crystalline lakes - is such that it is worth to be carried. The Argentine side, cross the west arm of Nahuel Huapi and Lake Puerto Alegre and, the chilen side, Lake Todos los Santos. Moving from one lake to another by bus. This tour is feasible in all seasons, but in winter, it takes two days to reach Puerto Montt, stopping for one night at Peulla. We returned to Bariloche by air or by the same way, after a night in Puerto Montt. Borispatagonia is also responsible for visas to go to Chile and to book hotels. In Patagonia, winter and summer are tourist seasons. In summer, besides explore the surrounding, many activities are available: climbing, torrent fishing, sailing, horseback riding, hiking, rides, visits to Aciendas... In winter, the main activity is, of course, skiing, especially in July and August on the side of the Andes, but not only: snowshoe hikes, thematic tours, many walks to admire the beauty of Patagonia Argentina and Chile in this season, due a unique light, the warmth of the people of Patagonia... Just to talk about, I get goose bumps!
