The southernmost part of Latin America is dominated by the vast wilderness of Patagonia, an area that is sparsely inhabited. Because of this, it offers almost unlimited possibilities for many kinds of outdoor activities. Next to world-class fly fishing, Patagonian BaseCamp Lodge offers a great variety of outdoor and culture experiences. The programs include: horseback riding, mountain biking, hiking to glaciers, whale, porpoise and bird watching, river float trips and white-water rafting, visiting natural hot springs, etc.
Following the relatively recent opening of the Carretera Austral, Patagonia has a newfound, though limited accessibility by road, though even today huge areas still remain completely unknown. Because of this, a pure and nearly untouched landscape remains to be explored.
Another option is a very impressive day trip to the ghost-town of Chaitén to witness the devastation caused by the 2008 volcano eruption.
To open up more possibilities to enjoy and conserve the natural beauty of Patagonia, we recently acquired hundreds of acres of virgin forest. Learn more about our Parque Natural El Escondido Project.
