Chile’s Atacama Desert exemplifies the concept in a most extraordinary manner.

Patagonia by Aerolineas Argentinas

In Argentina’s south, lies the gorgeous and infamous Patagonian region. Known for its exquisite beauty and breathtaking adventures, Patagonia is a must see to those visiting Argentina.

The Patagonian region of South America also includes Chile, although most of it resides within Argentina. Patagonia was named by Magellan, referring to the Tehuelche people’s large moccasins, which made their feet appear huge. Charles Darwin’s account of the native wildlife in Patagonia is still considered as relevant today as it was back then. This gives an indication of how authentically wild Patagonia remains 170 years later. In the “little known fact” category, Patagonia is also the final resting place of Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid.
