Trekking Patagonia is a thrilling adventure and one reason why you should visit South America. The subject of many stunning photographs and some of the best hikes through ever-changing landscapes of steep peaks, the Torres del Paine National Park attracts roughly 150,000 visitors to its remote wilderness each year. It may be a tough trip, but this park offers some of the most beautiful natural scenery in the world. Patagonia is also a great destination for standup paddle boarding with its turquoise lakes and rivers.
