Where to go in Argentinian Patagonia
List of regions
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.

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.
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 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.
Chile runs the entire length of Argentina's western border, with the hectic topography of the Andes dividing the two countries. One of the more spectacular ways to cross from Argentina into Chile is on a cruise through the Lake District.
San Martín de Los Andes is situated high in the foothills of the Andes, a stone's throw from the Argentine border with Chile. This lovely tourist town is around 60 miles from Bariloche and set on the eastern shore of Lacar Lake.
The Llao Llao hotel is one of the best hotels in Patagonia and, some might argue, all of Argentina. It has a lovely and convenient location, close to the resort town of Bariloche in the foothills of the Andes, in the heart of Argentina's stunning Lake District region.
