Land's End: The Patagonian Corridor

For years, some of Patagonia's most famous sanctuaries—Argentina's Los Glaciares National Park and Chile's Torres del Paine National Park—happened to be surrounded by some of the least developed land in an already staggeringly remote region.

Now that's starting to change. New roads and boat access are being introduced in the so-called Patagonia Corridor, the region that connects these two iconic parks with the Austral Way (the very end of the Pan-American Highway) and the basecamps of Villa O'Higgins, in Chile, and El Chalten, in Argentina. That means it'll soon be much, much easier for mountaineers and climbers to explore the two parks and all the glaciers, peaks, and valleys in between. Robinson Crusoe leads exploratory itineraries across the region.
