Torres del Paine National ParkYou can’t describe Chile’s Patagonia without superlatives. The region’s breathtaking peaks, glaciers, lakes, and skies serve as a reminder why we need to care for the planet. Torres del Paine National Park is for true adventurers not only because of its hard-to-reach, far-south location but also because camping—or simply visiting—requires snagging permits well in advance. That said, the payoff is enormous: Could you ever forget a cold night spent beneath the South American firmament in the shadow of such imposing mountains?
