Icebergs and glaciers

Patagonia 02 Gletsjers Wide

El Calafate is situated on the Blue Argentino Lake.
One of the glaciers that feeds it with meltwater is the impressive Perito Moreno. Prepare for a scene of constant motion and dull thuds as slabs of ice the size of trucks and cathedrals hit the water, then float across the lake as giant icebergs.

Admire the ice wall from up close from a stunning look-out point or from a boat.

Trek through a National Park

The Torres del Paine National Park features rugged granite towers protruding up to 2800 metres out of the pampas. Around and between these obstacles are many trails and camping grounds for hikers, including the so-called 'W circuit' that passes by deep-blue, grey and aquamarine lagoons, dark peaks and icy-blue glaciers. In addition to the campgrounds there are also several spectacular five-star hotels, such as Tierra Patagonia at the edge of the park.

The farthest tip of the continent is very close to Antarctica. Located as a natural theme park along several sailing routes between Chile and Argentina, the islands of the Tierra del Fuego archipelago are home to giant penguin and sea lion colonies.

These waters, including the famous Beagle Channel, guarantee a wildlife extravaganza and are ideal for a multi-day cruise. A common starting point is Punta Arenas in Chile, while the journey ends at Ushuaia in Argentina, the southern-most city in the world.

Tracking dinosaurs

Patagonia was once the stomping ground of the largest living creatures in the history of our planet. The 38-metre Argentinosaurus huinculensis, for example, weighed as much as 20 elephants. The giant was on the menu of the Giganotosaurus, which made up for its meagre 14-metre length witch enormous 20-centimetre teeth. Ninety million years later there are still traces of these creatures along the dinosaur trail in north-west Patagonia. Near Plaza Huincul, Villa El Chocón and Lago Barreales the fossil bones and paw prints are impossible to miss.
