The Route of Parks of Chilean Patagonia is a 1,700-mile (2800 km) scenic route spanning 17 National Parks between Puerto Montt and Cape Horn in Chile’s far south. The route connects the Carretera Austral—which winds its way along Chilean Patagonia—with the Patagonian Channels and the Ruta del Fin del Mundo (“The End of the World Route”), featuring many other spectacular highlights along the way.
The route’s pristine landscapes, diverse ecosystems, and local and endemic flora and fauna––combined with the rich history and cultural heritage maintained by the more than 60 local communities living in the region––make this destination truly one-of-a-kind.
The Route of Parks also forms part of a new vision for conservation in Chilean Patagonia. Through tourism that safeguards the natural and cultural riches of this special place, this vision both protects nature and fosters the economic development of local Patagonian communities.
