It encompasses some 1 million square kilometres and comprises the southern section of the Andes mountains as well as deserts, steppes and grasslands.
Bariloche and Puerto Varas are the gateways to Northern Patagonia’s alpine forests and emerald lakes. Well-known for skiing, fishing, trekking and their European chocolate-making tradition. Fantastic self-drive options available.
