Corredor Austral

This is the southernmost of all corridors and includes the South of the Province of Chubut, Santa Cruz and Tierra del Fuego.

From the glaciers to the beaches of the Argentinian Sea, this region encloses part of the endless Patagonian steppe, the last stretch of the Andean Mountain Range and abrupt coasts with various features.

Its landscapes are real masterpieces made by nature. Most of its rivers and creeks, large lakes and lagoons, forests, massifs, mounts and beaches give shelter to several fauna reserves and are part of the Los Glaciares, Perito Moreno and Tierra del Fuego National Parks.

Source of inspiration for explorers from other times, this area is now a tourist destination par excellence. Its tourist infrastructure of international level includes the Cerro Castor ski resort in Ushuaia. Magnificent estancias open their doors and invite visitors to relax in a rural scenery or practice activities such as fly-fishing in the splendid water courses that cross these territories.

The land of glaciers has its access point at El Calafate Town, from where many sightseeing and trekking tours leave towards the renowned Perito Moreno glacier.

In the southern end of the country and the continent, geography shows off its wildest resources.
