Patagonia: at world's end

Patagonia is a region located at the southern end of South America, shared by Argentina and Chile. The Argentine portion of Patagonia includes the provinces of Neuquén, Río Negro, Chubut and Santa Cruz, as well as the eastern portion of Tierra del Fuego. This region, probably, is one of the most beautiful naturalistic area in the world; on the area of over 1 million km2 lives less of 2 millions people for a density of only 1.9 per km2! So, the tourist that does a trip there will find terrific landscapes and immense spaces, where the view it lost on endless horizons. Patagonia has two oceanic coasts: a west on the Pacific Ocean and an east on the Atlantic Ocean; between the coasts, the mountains (Ande), the forests and enormous lowlands (pampas) with wonderful lakes and rivers.

The climate is cold, very cold in southern part, in winter. So in Argentino Lake you can see, in summer, a terrific spectacle: the melting of ice of Perito Moreno Glacier; really spectacular! Another interesting place is the Cueva de las Manos, in Santa Cruz: a cave with wall paintings of negative images of hundreds of hands, believed to date from around 8000 BC.

In Patagonia there are also wonderful peaks (Fitz Roi and Cerro Torre) and interesting fuana (coaguar, elephant seals and condor for example). In short and in my opinion a place that you must see!
