Facts About Patagonia, South America

Time Zone: America/Argentina/Rio_Gallegos

Latitude: -44.0

Longitude: -68.0

Patagonia, in Argentina and a part of Chile, contains part of the Andes Mountains. Ideal for the camera trigger-happy visitor, the areas landscapes span from massive, icy glaciers to grassy hills and water against the backdrop of snow-covered mountains.

The recommended time to visit this paradise at “the end of the world” is during the summer months, when humid weather and flower blossoms invite all kinds of visitors. Indigenous people in this area were once thought to be giants (a whopping 5’ 11”), which is perhaps where the name originates.

Splash around in the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean, treat yourself to dishes like Curanto, which means hot stones, at Colonia Suiza or try Lamb Shish Kebab. Go fly fishing, tackle some of the world's best climbing, take the snow full-on with just you and your skis or take advantage of a natural hot spring spa.

Because you like that hot and cold feeling that keeps you on your toes.
