Patagonia National Park – one of the 100 best sites of 2021

The renowned US magazine Time published its third annual list of the 100 best places in the world in 2021 to explore, where Chile figures with the Patagonia National Park.

Time highlighted its fauna of condors, guanacos, pumas and deer, but also the fact that since September the energy used by the park is 100% renewable.

The Patagonia National Park is a nature reserve and includes the area of the former national reserves Lago Jeinimeni and Lago Cochrane. The Chacabuco Valley is also part of this national park, an area donated to the Chilean state by the Tompkins Foundation, which used to care for the conservation of native flora and fauna.

The Chacabuco Valley is also the heart of the park, an ideal place for hiking and observing Patagonian wildlife such as guanacos and condors. The park has an infrastructure of hiking trails and campsites. In the middle of the valley is a lodge surrounded by pure wilderness.
