Patagonia Wildlife Experience
Patagonia is home to a range of mammals including guanacos, pumas, deer and foxes, in addition to over 100 different bird species. Many plants, trees and fungi are native to the region. Further south, you could add a cruise to the islands in the Magellan Strait, to see the penguin colonies, sea lions and austral dolphins. The Torres del Paine EcoCamp is a unique place to stay in the park, with each bedroom in its own eco dome.
