Destination

Patagonia is a vast region in the southernmost tip of South America. Here the continent falls away in a dazzling explosion of islands, glaciers, icebergs and mountains. It is truly mother nature's grand finale. Civilizations with magical rites, sailors and pioneers have contributed to its fame. It is a mythical place, synonymous with exploration. This famous region offers all the dramatic landscapes one would expect from the land's end. In this region you will find world-class rafting, fly fishing, cruises to glaciers and island hot springs.  

Among the other wondrous sites in this remarkable region are the Torres del Paine, a spectacular mountain range, which frames the Park of the same name, and extend to heights of up to 2,743 meters (9,000 ft.).

The first Europeans to lay eyes on this landscape were led by Ferdinand Magellan, who pioneered passage through the treacherous strait that now bears his name. His expedition named the mainland 'Tierra de los Patagones,' unwittingly spawning the myth of a race of Patagonian giants. To the south, they saw the horizon darkened by smoke from the natives' fires, and named the great island Tierra del Fuego. The legend of Patagonia was set in motion.

The indigenous groups who inhabited Tierra del Fuego deserved to be legends, as these were the world's first and greatest adventurers. In arriving on Tierra del Fuego they had completed the world's furthest human migration, arriving finally at the very end of the earth, where the Andes disappeared into the sea and glaciers flowed to the water's edge.
