Few a places in the world have captivated the imagination of explorers and travelers like Patagonia. Since Ferdinand Magellan sailed here many have settled, and yet this vast, remote region is still, for the most part, unexplored and largely uninhabited.

Patagonia – The Most Beautiful Natural Attractions In The World

Patagonia‘s beautiful, untamed landscape consists of narrow straits and steep-sided fjords rich in marine life, rugged mountains, harsh, windswept plateaux and glacial valleys. It is home to some of the most beautiful natural attractions in the world, from the granite towers of Torres del Paine and Los Glaciares national parks to the northern and southern ice fields with their enormous glaciers, the flat pampa broken only by bluffs of multi-coloured sedimentary rocks and stunning emerald lakes and rivers.

Considering its size and variety of terrain, Patagonia is surprisingly easy to navigate. One of the most spectacular areas of Patagonia is the Lake District in Argentina which is broken into two regions; the Northern Lakes and the Southern Lakes.

The Northern Lakes, strung along the foot of the Andes, are bordered by both Chile and Argentina. Trekking is the best way to explore the area as this enables you to reach the summit of many spectacular peaks in addition to seeing the wildflower-strewn valleys and everything in between.

Within the Northern Lakes area lie a number of national parks – the Parque Nacional Nahuel Huapi, situated on the Chilean border and the oldest national park in Argentina, the Parque Nacional Los Arrayanes, which surrounds the picturesque port of La Villa, and the Parque Nacional Los Alerces, one of the least spoiled and most beautiful stretches of the Andes, named after its impressive and rare ancient alerce trees.

The Southern Lakes, stretching down to Los Glaciares National Park, also offer spectacular scenery, with the mighty Moreno and Upsala glaciers, and challenging trekking around Mount Fitzroy.

From dense woods to petrified forests, from deserts to shoreline, Patagonia offers something for everyone, literally from the heights of the Andes, down to what many consider to be the southernmost city in the world, Ushuaia.
