As the plane landed in Patagonia, the pilot informed us that we had just landed at the Straight of Magellan, and from there the trip just became straight magic. I ended up staying in Punta Natales at a beautiful spot that overlooked a huge lake with rainbows every morning. We would travel into the parks throughout the day and hike for about 7hrs. I have never seen such different and stunning natural terrain in my life. The biggest trek was the all day hike to Torres de Paines, which pretty much felt like a full on Lord of the Rings adventure to Mordor. Needless to say...this magical place holds the key to peace of mind. Go there!
