Patagonia Cruises + Torres del Paine

Chile shares Patagonia with Argentina and here it is better known as Southern Patagonia. In this remote part of the world, largely because of their shared ranching tradition, the people often consider themselves Patagonians first and Chileans or Argentineans second! The southern part of the region is actually cut off from the rest of Chile by immense ice packs and the only access is by boat, air or through Argentina. Over half of the region is a Protected Wilderness Area and even by Andean standards the landscapes, scenery, sunsets and sunrises are astonishing.
 
Torres del Paine is the jewel of Southern Patagonia, if not South America. Encompassed by the Parque National Torres del Paine, it is one of the largest and most visited in Chile. At nearly 1,000 square miles, this is one of the most beautiful and scenic parks in the world, with mountains, glaciers, lakes, cascades and tumultuous rivers. It is for good reasons that it is also a World Biosphere Reserve.
 
There are amazing forest walks and hikes here where you are likely to see the ostrich like rhea, foxes, condors, flamingos and many other bird species. There’s also a chance of spotting pumas as these beautiful, elusive big cats hunt their favourite prey, the guanaco, a protected llama-like creature.

Just 15 miles from Puerto Natales, the base for exploring the national park, you can visit The Myloden Cave, the Den of The Beast. This is a national monument comprising several caves and a rock formation known as The Devil’s Chair. In 1896 the skin and remains of a myloden, or giant sloth, was found here. It had died more than 10,000 years ago.  
 
The park is simply perfect for wildlife observers and photographers, ecology and adventure sports lovers. If trekking is your passion, try the famous W circuit, which over five days takes you to all the main park attractions. Whether you stay in 5-star accommodation or camp and whatever activities you are doing, you will want to utilise all the seventeen hours of summer daylight.
 
Southern Patagonia is a land of mountains, water and ice and you can sail through fjords, canals and the Straits of Magellan, the famous channel that separates Tierra del Fuego from South America. At Marino Francisco Coloane Park watch dolphins, orcas and humpback whales. This is the only place in the southern hemisphere, apart from Antarctica, where they regularly gather to feed. Most visitors land at iconic Cape Horn and take in the ice flows.
 
On Navarino Island, southeast of Tierra del Fuego at the end of the world, you can take on the Dientes de Navarino, the southern-most trekking route in the world. Puerto Williams on the island is the southern-most town in the world, with Ushuaia on the Argentinean side the southern-most city.
The town of Porvenir, the main city on Tierra del Fuego, hosts the impressive Fernando Cordero Rusque Museum. It houses a comprehensive history of The Land of Fire, including the fascinating story of the Selk’nam Indians, the first inhabitants.
 
Unusually, one of the biggest attractions in the region is fly-fishing. The surroundings are stunning but it is the size, variety and profusion of the fish species here that make it so popular. These include brown trout, rainbow trout and steelhead. You can even take lessons but if birds are your thing, bird watching opportunities are equally impressive. You can see peregrine falcons, giant petrels and delightful rock hopper penguins in their thousands. It goes without saying that the entire area is a photographer’s paradise.
