Patagonia

Located at the south of Argentina, Patagonia is a land of beauty, with deserts, mountains, glaciers, lakes and foremost, its mystique!

Throughout its history the Patagonia has remained a desolate, inhospitable and virgin territory which resists human intervention. The arrival of the Spaniards in the 16th century did not mean major changes for the Patagonia. In spite of their military superiority, the conquerors did not establish settlements in these desolate lands.

It is comprised by five provinces, and covers a third of the total territory of Argentina.

This unique environment provides visitors a taste of so much that is special about Northern Patagonia.

Even more impressive is the range of natural habitats and environmental features available in one location. Because of the spectacular natural resources found here, large areas have been declared national parks, in an effort to preserve the remains of native forests which once covered the greater part of south-western Argentina, including pure stands of the prehistoric araucaria (monkey-puzzle tree), with its unequivocal umbrella shape.

The Patagonia wilderness is also the perfect scene for just about any outdoor activity.

From hunting and fishing, to photography or overnight camping on the shore of the rivers, with horseback riding and hiking somewhere in between, there is one thing they all have in common - the quality of the experience.

Although most of Patagonia is barren and windswept, lies a heavily forested region known as the "Andean Corridor of Lakes".

This vastly undeveloped region of Argentina is the most stunning landscape you could ever imagine. Containing hundreds of pristine glacial lakes and thousands of kilometers of famous rivers, home of the wild trouts.

Patagonia has lured some colourful characters in the past such as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Che Guevara and it has inspired writers like Bruce Chatwin (In Patagonia, 1977) and Richard Llewellyn (Green, Green My Valley Now, 1975).
