Patagonia National Park

Summary

Before becoming a park, it was a huge sheep farm which has been subdivided. In 2000, Doug Tompkins, founder of the North Face, founded the Patagonian Conservation that has been dedicated to protecting the wild areas of the region. The Patagonia National Park was the last founded so far.

 

The region is lush.

 

We will travel along the Carretera Austral, a highway located in southern Chile, with the main transport route for Aysen and Los Lagos region and which allows their connection with the rest of Chilean territory. It’s considered one of the roads most beautiful in the world!
