Sparkling lakes and brilliant white glaciers
The spectacular Patagonia region covers most of southern South America. In Chile, to the west, the towering peaks of the Andes dominate Patagonia. On the eastern side of Patagonia, in Argentina, foothills and terraced plains descend towards the Atlantic ocean.
These Argentine plains are home to a series of crystalline freshwater lakes. They create the perfect habitat for a dazzling array of wildlife and luxuriant flora and vegetation. The region is also home to vast icefields and glaciers. These are the largest in the Southern hemisphere outside Antarctica. Strap on a set of crampons to explore and you’ll discover a brilliant white world of trickling cravasses and icy caverns.
It’s also here that you can visit Latin America's first Glaciarium, the Museo del Hielo Patagonico. It was founded by a group of climbing enthusiasts keen to document and research Patagonia’s unique ecology and climate. The Museo del Hielo Patagonico is a testament to Patagonia’s legendary, rugged charm.
With so much to explore and discover on a Patagonia holiday, we can help you ensure you don’t miss a thing.
