Patagonia Tourist Attractions

With a grand stage of 400,000 square miles (roughly one and a half times the size of the UK), Patagonia is as expansive as it is impressive. Visitors certainly have to plan their trip accordingly ahead of time in order to make the most of their time in this vibrant land. Many people choose to visit the Patagonia attractions in the northern lakes districts of Argentina and Chile. This is where you’ll find the world famous national parks, Los Glaciares National Park and Torres del Paine National Park. Throughout other areas of the region, a vast, largely untamed wilderness remains. Argentinean Andean-Patagonia Parks house empty spaces and ranching country, while Chilean Patagonia is a collage of islands, inlets, and labyrinthine channels.

Here are the top attractions to see while visiting Patagonia:
