Save Place
Los Glaciares National Park, Santa Cruz Province, Argentina
You don't look at the glaciers in Los Glaciares National Park. You *watch* them. And, you watch the people watching the glaciers. They shift. They shimmy. They moan. The slump. They break. They crash. OK, only the glaciers crash...we hope.

Lago del Desierto 250, Z9300 El Chalten, Santa Cruz, Argentina
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...

El Chaltén, Santa Cruz Province, Argentina
I had heard the Laguna de Los Tres was a magnificent hike so anticipation was already heavy as we got up early the morning of our trek. This pic was taken at the trailhead at sunrise and paints a startling first glimpse of the Fitz Roy. Many...

Pucón, Araucania, Chile
Just outside of Pucón, Huerquehue National Park, is an incredible sight to see. Theyll recommend snow shoes, but I did the hike to the top in running shoes. I highly recommend enjoying an asado in downtown Pucón after hiking here.
