Patagonia, that fabled land of endless, open space at the end of the continent, has humbled and enchanted explorers, mountaineers and nature lovers from around the world. Darwin called it “wretched and useless,” yet he was deeply moved by its desolation and forever attracted to it.

From the Río Colorado in the north to Cape Horn, 1,200 miles south; this vast territory of 309,000 square miles may seem monotonously devoid of life, but these very characteristics make it one of the most amazing natural preserves on earth, where a staggering variety of plants and wildlife exist in pristine habitats.

On the western border with Chile, the Andes form a natural barrier to Pacific storms, and water from their eternal snow fields pours into lakes and streams that feed the major rivers that flow for hundreds of miles across the great arid plateau into the Atlantic Ocean.
