Discover The south coast Chile

In the south of the country, the coast becomes transformed into a country of glaciers and fjords where the waves sweep inland violently for most of the year. The weather here is considerably different from the main tourist towns further north, making the southern coast a less popular destination, but one that still boasts a beauty of its own. Average temperatures here are 0°C in winter and 9°C in summer, whilst rainfall averages 3000mm a year.

In the Patagonia region, immense glaciers and fjords dominate the landscape, which can be viewed from boat tours taking you up-close to the giant ice sculptures. The southern coast also has several National Parks including Alberto de Agostini and Karukinka in the Tierra del Fuego - a vast region of deserted steppes broken up by fjords where rain, wind and the cold make it one of the most hostile inhabited regions in the world.
