Patagonia Things to See and Do

follow us

Patagonia is an outdoor enthusiast's dreamland. Anglers may choose between ocean fishing at Bahía San Blas, Las Grutas and Puerto San Julián, and fly fishing in Santa Cruz Province's rivers. Snow sports, like downhill skiing in Río Turbio and snowshoeing in El Chaltén, are slowly gaining popularity. Hikers have all summer to enjoy trekking in Los Glaciares and Perito Moreno National Parks.

Nature lovers will be stunned by the spectacular mountain landscapes along Ruta 40, culminating with Perito Moreno Glacier. Migratory birds frequent the Atlantic coast nature reserves. Magellanic Penguins come to nest at Punta Tambo and Rockhopper Penguins drop in at Ría Deseado. Whales tend their young at Puerto Madryn. Also all along the seaboard are dolphins, orcas, sea lions and elephant seals.

Travelers may also explore Patagonia's prehistoric past. Petrified forests of Monumento Natural Bosques Petrificados and Sarmiento, and dinosaurs at Gaiman are mute testimony to the giants that once occupied these plains. Indigenous nations left behind many painted caves throughout the region, from Estancia La María in the east to Cueva de la Manos in the west.
