The Patagonian region is shared between Chile and Argentina. The Southern Atlantic coast of Patagonia runs for more than 3000km through Argentinian territory. Patagonia starts at The Rio Negro and basically consists of whales and Wales! The Mimosa arrived to Northern Patagonia with 165 Welsh immigrants aboard in 1865 Welsh tea shops and stores, can be seen in these towns to this day! Whales, just one species amongst the abundant sea life, can be found calving from July to September and the port of Valdés is an excellent spot to see the phenomenon. Orcas, elephant seals, fur seals and sea lions are visible all year round. This unique (and chilly, not Chile!) part of the world, being so close to the Antarctic. The Perito Moreno glacier found in the glaciers national park is one of the many highlights of Patagonia, which is a trekkers and naturalists' heaven on earth!
