Everyone knows that Chile is long and skinny, but how many people know that Chile is longer from north to south than the distance from Washington, D.C, to San Francisco, California? With the driest desert in the world in the tropical latitudes of the north, and the glaciers, peaks, ….and pumas…in the south in what leading international conservation professionals long have called “the most beautiful national park in the world” (Torres del Paine)?

SouthWild has chosen just a few itineraries to offer in this amazingly diverse country, each for a specific, extreme reason. Additionally, we have singled out two locations in Patagonian Argentina worthy of a visit, namely the astounding Perito Moreno Glacier, and wildlife-rich Peninsula Valdés (sic).
