Alberto de Agostini National Park

Alberto de Agostini may not be world famous, but the massive 14,500-square-kilometer (5,600-square-mile) national park named in honor of this Italian missionary and explorer is so vital that it forms half of the UNESCO Cape Horn Biosphere. It’s home to the Darwin mountain range, plus the major glaciers of Romanche and a series named for countries—Italia, Francia, Alemania. King cormorants and the evergreen coigue thrive here, as does the winter’s bark tree, whose bark is so rich in vitamin C that it was long brewed into a tea, helping sailors fight scurvy.
