The far southern edge of South America, where the Andes mountains reach the rugged seas off of Cape Horn, has over the decades become one of the most fabled adventure travel destinations in the world. Perhaps no other place in the world represents the pure wildness of nature better than Patagonia. You can feel it in the ferocious winds and on the needle granite spires of mountains topped by masses of funnel shaped clouds, and see it in the enormous glaciers calving into pristine turquoise lakes or in the eyes of a gaucho riding on the remote corner of a 100,000-acre ranch.
The Patagonian Ice Field, from which dozens of glaciers branch out like little fingers, is almost 500 miles end-to-end, the third largest expanse of ice on the planet. From here stretch vast expanses of unbroken sky, rugged mountains and fertile grasslands stretching into the horizon, inhabited by wild horses, Andean condors, elusive mountain lions and the camel-like guanaco. As a newly-minted visitor to the region told us, “It’s hard to explain why, but I left my heart in Patagonia.” We couldn’t say it any better.
Patagonia has established itself as one of the premier adventure travel destinations in the world. Perhaps no other place in the world represents pure wildness better than Patagonia. You can feel it in the ferocious wind, the needle granite spires topped by pancake-like lenticular clouds, vast skies and pampas stretching to infinity, huge glaciers calving into turquoise lakes large enough to be seen from space, or in the eyes of a gaucho on a remote corner of a 100,000-acre estancia. Not to mention wild horses, Andean condors, elusive pumas, and their favorite prey, the guanaco.
