Fun Facts About PATAGONIA

Land vs People

Patagonia is about half of Chile and half of Argentina (over 650k miles in total) although it’s home to less than 5% of either country’s population. There’s A LOT of vast wilderness here, which really is a huge part of the attraction.

Giants

Magellan was the first European to set foot in Patagonia, in 1520. He met the Tehuelche natives & considered them to be giants ‘so tall that the tallest of us only came up to their waist’. The Tehuelches may not have been true giants but the fossils of the biggest dinosaur ever was found here.

Andes Mountains

The world’s longest mountain range spans across Patagonia from north to south, eventually cascading into the very cold waters of the Southern Ocean.

Animals

In total, Patagonia boasts nine national parks, each showcasing very distinct ecosystems and a very large array of wildlife, most of which is endemic to the region.
