Things to do in Patagonia

Patagonia is a distant destination that's worth the journey. There are few places in the world that offer such resplendent natural beauty. Given its breathtaking landscapes, one of the most popular things to do in Patagonia is to engage in recreational activities, such as sports and fishing. For those who like adventure sports, hiking the W Trek and the Laguna Torre are among the best things to do in Patagonia. Another option is to go ice trekking on the Perito Moreno Glacier, white water rafting or kayaking on the Rio Futaleufu, or cycling on the Patagonian plains.

If you're still wondering what to do in Patagonia, take a trip to Ushuaia to visit the southernmost city in the world. You will have the chance to see the well known Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse and the Tierra del Fuego National Park. The wide coastline of Patagonia invites you to visit penguins, sea lions, or whales. Discover the astonishing landscapes of this southern destination. Boat trips in the Beagle Channel will take you around the end of the South American continent, where you can find abundant sea and bird life and astonishing landscapes.

Even if you want to stay inside and, say, look at art, the Paleontologico Egidio Feruglio Museum or the Glaciarium Museum are world-class offerings. No matter what your preferences are, finding what to do in Patagonia means adventure to be had.
