It would ordinarily be absurd to describe water as delicious, but Patagonia is far from ordinary. How else to describe the clear, crisp flow of a Patagonian current that can be drunk straight from the stream? One of the last places on earth with water so pure it can be quaffed unfiltered, Patagonia is a hiker’s dream for that reason alone. But when combined with the scenery, it really is incomparable. With water so cold it is impossible to chug, the landscape provides ample reason to sip and linger and appreciate.
