Chilean Patagonia

Located in Chilean Patagonia, Torres del Paine National Park features a number of rivers and lakes, as well as one of the world's most unique shoreline landscapes. Coastal glaciers, mountains, ice formations, and waterfalls, as well as a feel of complete remoteness, really make this an attractive (and visually stunning) place for a paddling expedition. 

The type of scenery here is just not found in many other destinations, so people seeking something utterly unique will surely enjoy a trip to this part of Patagonia. Paddlers can head along the coast or to inland waterways, with some tours hitting the most scenic freshwater and saltwater sights in under a week.
