Patagonia is a land of endless plains, a fantastic world of ice and rock but also a land of powerful winds and distant dreams. Our journey begins in the deepest south of Argentina, at the 'end of the world' within a natural paradise between both sky and earth.
In the Tierra Del Fuego region, Ushuaia is known as the Gateway to Antarctica and is a small town that has experienced a great boom in recent years. It is difficult to believe that not so long ago, nothing but the wooden huts of Anglican missionaries stood there and 400 criminals were forced to build a prison.
The Tierra Del Fuego National Park was founded in 1960 and is very accessible. The Rio Pipo snakes through the varied landscape and more than 60,000 hectares cover the border with Chile surrounded by snow covered mountains that survey the land below.
By boat we travel to the impressive Glaciar Grey at the southern end of the Patagonian Ice Field, where the ice masses of the glacier meet the waters of the lake and huge chunks of floating ice slowly break away in dramatic fashion.
Patagonia is one of the oldest landscapes on Earth, a beautiful world of rock and savannah created out of fire, water, wind and ice and subject to constant change.
