Torres Del Paine Lake and the Horns in Patagonia

Southern Patagonia

The south of Patagonia is home to Chile’s iconic Parque Nacional Torres del Paine, renowned for its rugged horn-shaped peaks of the Cuernos del Paine and pristine sand-coloured lowlands where the huaso countrymen, or baqueano, practice age-old cattle herding traditions. In the north, enormous ice fields flank brilliant blue glaciers whilst fjords and deep channels usher penguins to their waters. Not only does this breathtaking region feature a rich entanglement of rainforest and mountain ranges that stretch across the horizon, but it is also the official gateway to Antarctica, the earth’s southernmost continent.
