Take an adventure holiday to PATAGONIA with World Expeditions, one of the world’s leading travel companies.
Patagonia – The Heart of South America’s Wilderness
Patagonia is an enormous region south of Buenos Aires province, featuring the awesome peaks of Fitz Roy and the Paine Range that runs into both the Argentinian and Chilean Patagonia. This glacier-dotted mountainous interior is part of the great chain of Andean peaks and offers some of the most spectacular wilderness trekking to be found anywhere in the world. Patagonia boasts unique wildlife, including flamingos, sea birds, guanacos, elephant seals and righ whales. The Perito Moreno Glacier of Santa Cruz is a 60-meter-high (197-ft-high) river of rising, toppling and exploding ice, though it hasn't been advancing for several years.
