When Do You Want To Go?

Patagonia isn't just a region – it's an inspiration. One of South America's most magical destinations, this is a land of giants filled with spectacular mountains, vast glaciers and azure alpine lakes that will quite simply take your breath away. The sheer size and space of this rugged yet beautiful wilderness all combine to create a powerful sense of natural balance.

Whether you're a seasoned traveller of the world's greatest natural highlights, or normally a city-and-culture-traveller looking for a different type of holiday, Patagonia's impeccable landscapes will be certain to both impress and enthral you.

So what exactly makes Patagonia so special? The region ranges across both Chile and Argentina and is most famous for its unique wildlife and diverse geography. Snow, mountains, lakes and an endless coastline are amongst some of its highlights, but its most noticeable and impressive characteristic is the perpetual sense of limitless space and freedom one feels – and cannot ignore – when here.

As a true 'museum of nature', Patagonia offers all sorts of mesmerising views ranging from impressive peaks, plateaus, glaciers and untouched rivers to the most peaceful backwater oases. Whether you want to hike through the Torres del Paine National Park, explore the Chilean and Argentinian Lake Districts or discover Peninsula Valdes, Huilo Huilo or El Calafate, you can be assured of enjoying never-ending beauty and a permanent sense of calmness.

We know that trying to decide what to see and where to start when planning the perfect trip to Patagonia can be a little overwhelming, but don't worry – this is where our Latin Routes can help.

Where to Go
Places to Stay

In 1520, the Atlantic coast of Patagonia was first fully explored by the Spanish expedition led by Ferdinand Magellan, who on his passage along the coast named many of its more striking features – San Matías Gulf, Cape of 11,000 Virgins (now simply Cape Virgenes), and others. Magellan's fleet spent a difficult winter at what he named Puerto San Julián before resuming its voyage further south on 21 August 1520. During this time he encountered the local inhabitants – likely to be Tehuelche people – described by his reporter, Antonio Pigafetta, as giants called Patagons.

European explorations went on until 1669 and were led by varied names and nationalities. In 1669 the district around Puerto Deseado was explored by John Davis and was claimed in 1670 by Sir John Narborough for King Charles II of England. Later, the Chilean and Argentine colonisation came (1843-1902), and only in the second half of the 20th century did tourism became an ever more important part of Patagonia’s economy. Originally a remote backpacking destination, this region has now attracted increasing numbers of upmarket visitors, cruise passengers rounding Cape Horn or visiting Antarctica, and adventure and activity holidaymakers. 

For those who are curious, Monte Fitz Roy, also known as El Chalten, was discovered by the Argentinian explorer Francisco Moreno in March 1877. He named it in honour of Robert FitzRoy, the captain of the Beagle, who sailed up the Santa Cruz River and charted large parts of the Patagonian coast en route to the Galapagos Islands.
