About Patagonia

Patagonia… From the beginning it was a “Tierra Incognito”: the land that navigators and adventurers would die to discover… and continue to do so today. Its magnetism radiates precisely from the unknown since there are many places which have not yet been touched by humans.

Unique landscapes, more than 2500 species of flora and approximately 500 of wild fauna, labyrinth-like geography and a lively culture are some of the other components of this undecipherable puzzle.

The beauty of its landscapes, the warmth of its people, the unique geography and the history full of matrices area all a good reasons to visit this remote area. Recently named the “8th Wonder of the World, Torres del Paine National Park is a “MUST”, we also invite you to explore areas like Tierra del Fuego and Isla Navarino, with unknown trekking circuits (like Dientes de Navarino,) and new National Parks , like Yendegaia Park. The whale watching experience in Chile’s first Marine Park Francisco Coloane, is also something you will never forget.
