Southern Patagonia

Argentina & Chile - March 19-April 4, 2007

Patagonia is known as an area of vast landscapes, few people and rugged terrain. I visited the most southerly region of Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego and the Chilean islands as part of a film shoot for Angry Planet. The locals call the area "Fin del Mundo", the "End of the World" and it certainly feels like it. If you any farther south, you'll end up in Antarctica. It was Puerto Williams, Chile where I boarded the sailing vessel Northanger to sail around the treacherous waters of Cape Horn and to explore the glaciers of the Beagle Channel.
