A dream come true. PATAGONIA.



As described by the book of Bruce Chatwin “PATAGONIA”, the name Patagonia comes from the nicknames given by Magellan’s crew to the native of this land. (The Tehuelche tribe). Magellan arrived in 1520 in Puerto San Julian. The crew called these people “Patagoni” which means big feet. The look of being big footed derived from wearing heavy furs to protect their feet from the rigid climate that is experienced on this part of the planet.

We are crossing lands where nature’s strength is tangible. Even with this harsh climate and difficult landscape men-kind were able to start a life and build little villages here. Many of these places were reachable only by see. No possibilities of building any kinds of roads due to the complex land formation.

Route to the end of the world.



Typical Landscape



Only Augusto Pinochet in the 1980′s had the will and power to start building a road that would be known as Carretera Austral. The scope of this road was to unify Chile as a country and its path goes through many unbelievable scenery and landscapes. Many areas along the Carretera Austral have now turned into National Parks. Many Volcanos are present in this part of Chile. An example is the Volcano Chaiten that completely destroyed the village below in 2008.
