A Last Wild Place

Patagonia, the legendary land of wildness, fierce winds, and hardy gauchos, easily lives up to the allure of its iconic name. The future Patagonia National Park lies in one of the most ecologically critical areas of this region. Exploring the unique geography, geology, ecology and history of this place deepens our respect and understanding of its critical global importance.


“The word 'Patagonia', like Mandalay or Timbuctoo, has lodged itself in our imagination as a metaphor for The Ultimate, the point beyond which one could not go.”

—Bruce Chatwin
