Summary

Yendegaia National Park offers a visually spectacular tour of one of Earth’s most remote and scenic national parks. In Chilean Patagonia on the grand island of Tierra del Fuego, the new park — designated in 2014 — was prompted by a donation of private land to the Chilean park system. When combined with adjacent federal land, the new protected area covers some 372,000 acres, and forms a habitat linkage between existing national parks in Chile and Argentina. Thus the new Yendegaia National Park has helped establish one of the planet’s most significant trans-boundary protected areas, or "peace parks".

During expeditions to Yendegaia in various seasons, renowned nature photographer Antonio Vizcaíno captured the harsh beauty of a remote land at the end of the world where glacier-carved peaks, untamed rivers, windblown steppe, and Earth’s southernmost forests combine to create a unique and stunningly beautiful landscape. For both armchair adventurers who dream of Patagonia and intrepid travelers planning a trip to Chile’s national parks, Yendegaia National Park is a must-have.
