CHILE - PATAGONIA
Chile occupies an unusually long narrow strip of land
from north to south, a total of 4,630 km, while its average breadth is just 175 km. The country, due to wide latitude, covers a wide range of climatic conditions that offer natural diversity in the country. To the north, in the Atacama desert, where areas abundant in mineral wealth dominate, the climate is dry. In the central regions, which are the largest part of the country's population, there is a Mediterranean climate. In contrast, in the south, characterized by dense forests with lakes, fjords, volcanoes, capes and small islands, humidity is intense with constant rainfall.
Patagonia is one of the most sparsely populated areas of the earth.
Most of it is located in Argentina between
in the 40th and 55th geographic parallel of the Southern Hemisphere. In its turquoise lakes, its permanently snowy mountain peaks are reflected, or its moving glaciers are crumbled. Its forests include unique plant species and preserve complex ecosystems while the wild beauty of its landscapes attracts nature lovers from all over the world.
Where the Patagonia ends, the Earth of the Fire begins, the southernmost
inhabited part of the Earth. Nearly the natives have disappeared
they held blazing fires, but the name they gave they stayed
the first Spanish sailors "terra del fuego"
