Totally confused about Patagonia.

Jump to last reply

I will be visiting Chile this year and I am very confused about the sights in Patagonia. I had been to New Zealand some years ago and loved the natural beauty of the place. Fast forward to last year and Alaska which is naturally beautiful was to me, a boring destination. I don't participate in outdoor activities, maybe that's why. I would like to see Patagonia, but I'm very confused what sights I should try to see. I really don't want a repeat of Alaska and I would like to see unique sights in Patagonia.

Here's a list of what I'm thinking of:-

Perito Moreno
Torre del Paine - not 100% sure which sights I should concentrate on here
Mt Fitzroy
The Strait of Magelin

I am not sure if I should include these sights:-

Balmaceda
Tierre del Fuego.
Puerto Mont
Usuhaia

Any comments will be appreciated. Thanks.
