  • Patagonia National Park is an national park in the Aysén Region of Chile. On January 29, 2018, Chilean President Michelle Bachelet and Kris Tompkins, President and CEO of Tompkins Conservation, signed a decree creating 5 national parks, one of which will Patagonia National Park. Patagonia Park will be gifted to the Chilean state and then combined with Lago Jeinimeni National Reserve, Lago Cochrane National Reserve and other additional land to create Patagonia National Park, with a combined size of 640,000 acres. It is located in Aysen region.The Aysen region was the last to be joined to Chile, long after even the southernmost region of Magallanes and Chilean Antarctica. Its geographical location and transport difficulties explain the lack of interest aroused in the nineteenth century for these lands, to the point that no one even thought of colonizing them with immigrants, as happened with the other southern regions. Following the signing of the Boundary Treaty with Argentina in 1881, european settlers came from the Pampas to the valleys that cross the Andes from east to west. This private efforts led to the uncoordinated creation of cities in Puerto Aysen in 1904, Balmaceda Coyhaique in 1917 and 1929. The oldest of the towns is Melinka, established by mid-nineteenth century, on Ascension Island, the archipelago of the Guaitecas.
