- Scenery The Carretera Austral, a dusty dirt road that was blazed through southern Chile in the 1970s and ‘80s, has opened up one of the most beautiful places in the world to tourists. Rent a car, preferably a four-wheel-drive truck or jeep, and soak it all in.
- Glaciers To watch a chunk of ice break off the glaciers near Mount San Valentín and fall with a thundering splash into the sea below is reason enough for a trip along the southern coast to Laguna San Rafael National Park.
- Fishing Fly-fishing fanatics were among the first to explore this area thoroughly. At any number of lodges, you can step right outside your door for great fishing. A short boat trip brings you to isolated spots where you won’t run into another soul for the entire day.
- Rafting and kayaking The Futaleufú River is Class V-plus. That's raft speak for very fast-moving water. In fact, this river is considered one of the fastest in the world.
