patagonian Andes

Few places in the world have captivated the imagination of explorers and travellers like Patagonia, a region located at the southern end of South America, shared by Chile and Argentina. This vast, varied region encompasses narrow straits and steep-sided fjords, rugged mountains, windswept plateaux and glacial valleys. In 2011 I spent three weeks in South America trekking in the Patagonian Andes.
