Stilts and Shingles of Chiloé

  On a Patagonia cruise – or any Patagonia travel vacation, really – landscape and wildlife are the traditional highlights. Still, no Patagonia ferry itinerary should overlook the region’s cultural attractions, including its architecture. In southernmost Patagonia, for instance, there’s a distinctive “Magellanic” style of metal-clad wooden houses, many in a derivative Victorian style that [...]


Natales Gourmet_ Dining in Patagonia

When I first saw Puerto Natales, Chile more than three decades ago, it was primarily a wool-industry service center, and a stopover for backpackers headed to Torres del Paine – and, at that time, few people even thought about a Patagonia travel vacation.

Everyone who travels the Patagonia navigation routes while on vacation looks forward to seeing the great glaciers of Chile’s Fuegian fjords or the massive southern icefields that culminate in Argentina’s Moreno Glacier. There are other cool treats that await visitors, though – on their palates, in the form of ice cream (or gelato, if you [...]


Food Trucks of Patagonia

Perhaps my favorite Patagonia navigation route in southernmost South America – one I always recommend to visitors on an adventure in Patagonia – is Chile’s Carretera Austral, which runs through a region as wild as the Alaska Panhandle and the Canadian Yukon. Its downside, though, is the paucity of services – there is only one [...]
