Patagonia Guanaco SilouettePatagonia MapPatagonia is a wilderness without equal – as much as a million square miles that spans two countries and contains the southernmost habitable lands on the earth. There is a long history here of the efforts by the Europeans to conquer and colonize this area, which until the Panama Canal was constructed was the only passage to the Pacific Ocean.

We started our January 2003 trip in Buenos Aires, and spent a few days in the north of Argentina exploring the amazing Iguazu Falls.

Then we left the hot weather behind and met up with our Wilderness Travel group in Patagonia. We had heard about the notorious iguazu_mapwind throughout this region, but were still surprised by its intensity which literally blew a few of us off the trail more than once!  We visited Ushuaia, the southern most city in the world, located in Tierra del Fuego. We also hiked and explored Glacier National Park, and Paine National Park which are truly some of the most spectacular and unexploited hiking areas we’ve seen.
