Torres del Paine National Park
If a world’s best national park award were ever proposed, Torres del Paine would be a very worthy contender.
The iconic gnarled peaks of granite that stretch over 2000m skywards above the Patagonian steppe are reason enough to travel to this far stretch of earth, but once here, you realize they are only one of many. This land bears deserted pampas, turquoise blue lakes, emerald Majellanic rainforest and, at it’s centre, an ice-cap the size of Hawaii!
Torres del Paine doesn’t muck around, there’s no bluff cards, just vista after vista of awe-inspiring landscapes sprinkled with Chilean flamingos, night-roaming pumas and llama-like guanaco.
Dalí would’ve had a field day in this surrealist corner of the globe.
