Chile & Patagonia
At the foot of the Andes, Patagonia is a world of jagged snowcapped peaks, imposing glaciers, and windswept hillsides. Known as the “end of the world”, this diverse wilderness region contains an extensive and unique array of wildlife, including the mythical Puma or Cougar, Darwin’s Fox, Humpback Whale, and King Penguin.
“Patagonia is the farthest place to which man walked from his place of origins. It is therefore a symbol of his restlessness. From its discovery it had the effect on the imagination something like the Moon, but in my opinion more powerful”. Bruce Chatwin (In Patagonia).

- Patagonia is an exposed region, and the strong currents and winds that circle the Antarctic land mass make the weather changeable and difficult to predict.
- Even in summer (Dec – Mar), cold strong winds and rainfall are not uncommon. However, periods of warm sunshine (up to 25 degrees Celsius) are frequent during our tour season.
