Patagonia: peaks, ice, millennial forests
 

 

 

Tierra del Fuego

The Andes mountain range shows its beauty in the Patagonian provinces. Millennial silent forests with native vegetable species are extended along the shores of glistening waters.

On top of the mountains, nature overflows with granite peaks and ice fields spreading their glacier tongues into lakes of unsurpassable beauty.

Imposing mammals and sea birds, half-way between real life and fantasy, spend certain seasons on the rough coasts of Patagonia where they complete part of their life cycle.

Seals colonies play on the islets and sandbanks. The world ' s most important southern elephant sea continental colony is located in Peninsula Valdés.

Every year, southern right whales come to Nuevo and San José gulfs to breed. Patagonian hares, "ñandúes" (South American ostrich) and guanacos" run about the steppes, and the largest colony of Magellanic penguins in the world is located in Punta Tombo.

This life cycle repeated since time immemorial, unfolds itself in front of the astonished visitors' eyes. In the south, Tierra del Fuego and the World's southernmost city, Ushuaia, are the gateway towards the vast and mysterious Antarctica.
