Scenic Drive · Tourist Spot
Drive through scenic rural Patagonia on Carretera Austral. The highway, commenced during Pinochet’s rule and completed in the early 2000's, takes you on a 1,240 km (770.5 mi) journey through a staggering variety of landscapes. Pass lush green forests, national parks, and volcanoes while the road curves, becomes steeper, or narrows between rocky mountain passes. Visit quaint cities and villages along the way, and take detours to go kayaking or see the glaciers. A road trip on the Southern Highway offers a chance to see lakes, deserts, snow-capped peaks, swamps, and grasslands, all in a couple of days.
