Last month a dream came true - after seeing tons of photos from Patagonia I finally had the chance to go there along with 3 friends during autumn. We started the journey on Instagram under the hashtag #PatagoniaStory - check the hashtag and their feed to get even more impressions! Eeva, Daniel and Hannes.
However, 29 hours of traveling, annoying airport layovers I found myself in Punta Arenas, the gate to Patagonia from the Chilean side. Our main thing in Chile was Torres Del Paine Nationalpark with its iconic peaks. We drove to Puerto Natales to stock up and hike 'the W' - a 120 km long hike through the heart of the Nationalpark. The hike turned out a fantastic experience, we were blessed with the weather and didn't face strong winds or torrential downpours for what Patagonia is famous for.
After the hike we started driving to the Argentinian side of Patagonia. With a quick detour to Calafate and Glacier Perito Moreno we went straight to El Chaltén. The small town is towered by the 3400 m high Mount Fitz Roy which is probably the most famous sight you can get in Patagonia which also has become the logo of a same named brand.
