Argentinian Patagonia

Visit Argentinian Patagonia

Introduction

Patagonia is one of South America's most impressive and inspiring regions in which to travel. Pristine lakes and imposing glaciers, vast treeless plateaus and the towering snow-capped peaks of the Andes dominate, making Patagonia a real highlight to any Argentina holiday. Its treacherous peaks and dramatic coastlines are also home to a range of notable wildlife. Southern right whales come to calf in the sheltered bays of Peninsula Valdés, and can be seen on boat trips close to the shore. The Parque National Tierra de Fuego, meanwhile, is noted for its abundant seabirds.

People have lived in the Patagonia wilderness since 10,000 BC, although it remains a largely unpopulated and untamed region. European immigrants in the past few centuries have left their mark, including a prominent Welsh community that has grown since the first 150 Welsh settlers arrived in Patagonia in 1865. Given the desolate beauty of the landscape, it's easy to see why they stayed.

Where to go in Argentinian Patagonia

Mount Fitz Roy & El Chaltén

Mount Fitz Roy is situated in the Los Glaciares National Park and is one of the Andes' most iconic peaks, named after the captain of the Beagle, who saw it from afar in 1833. Jutting sharply above the surrounding peaks as polished granite towers shoot to the sky, Mount Fitz Roy is still considered …

El Calafate, Perito Moreno & Los Glaciares National Park

Los Glaciares National Park is one of Argentina's most spectacular national parks and a superb tailor made travel destination. The park is named after the 47 major glaciers that lie within it, some of which crumble into the park's great lakes in dramatic fashion.

Ushuaia - Tierra del Fuego

Tierra del Fuego is the southernmost province of Argentina, separated from the rest of the country by the Strait of Magellan. The province shares the island of Isla Grande with Chile, but its territory extends to the eastern Isla de los Estados and, controversially, the Falkland Islands.

Puerto Madryn & Peninsula Valdés

Puerto Madryn and Peninsula Valdés fringe the Atlantic coast, in the northern reaches of Patagonia. The city of Puerto Madryn was founded by a group of Welsh immigrants in 1865 and has grown steadily ever since.
