Where to go in Chilean Patagonia
List of regions
Torres del Paine is Chile's finest national park, noted for its spectacular, sprawling landscapes and the majestic granite spires that give the park its name. Take it all in on hikes and horseback rides, or simply enjoy the views from a range of stunning hotels and ultra-luxury lodges.
Expedition cruises in Northern Patagonia are a memorable way to take in some of Chile's most impressive waterways. The country's stunning Lake District can be accessed from Puerto Montt, one of the main cruise hubs in Patagonia.
Puerto Natales is the gateway to the beautiful glaciers, fjords and towering peaks of southern Patagonia. The town is a base for adventure travel, as the jumping off point for two of Chile's most spectacular national parks - Torres del Paine and Parque Nacional Bernardo O'Higgins.
The southern Patagonian city of Punta Arenas has led a varied existence since its foundation in 1848. At one time or other it has served as a whaling station, penal colony, military base and a centre for sheep farming.
Southern Patagonia is an untamed region of icy Andean peaks and mighty glaciers. This awe-inspiring landscape straddles the Chile-Argentina border from Fitz Roy down to blustery Tierra del Fuego, at the very bottom tip of South America.
