A Guide to Where Exactly in South America Patagonia is

Alright, so we know that tours in Patagonia are set in a wild and beautiful wilderness paradise somewhere in the world. That is a good start. But where is it? Let’s get into more details and simplify this for you.

What continent is Patagonia on? 

It is in South America! Best Time to Visit Chile 1

Is it Chile or Argentina? 

Map of Patagonia
As you can see in this map, the region (in red) is located at the very bottom of the continent of South America. It lies in both Chile and Argentina and covers a huge amount of land area.

Next step in figuring out the question, Where it is, is figuring out what country it is in. This question makes the original question of ‘Where is this mysterious wild land much more difficult to answer. That is because it is actually in both Chile and Argentina! As you can see by the map above, Patagonia is actually a region that encompasses nearly all of the southern tip of South America. So if you’re planning on visiting, adding other destinations for your trip to Chile or trip to Argentina is recommended.

So, to simplify, where is it?


Patagonia is a huge region of land at the bottom of South America that contains plateaus, glaciers, plains, foothills, wild animals, towering mountains, whales, penguins, and more! It also contains everything from rustic mountain lodges to luxury, 5-star resorts and eco-lodges. Now that we answered the question of Where is it, the only thing left to figure out is how much time you want to spend in there, and what you want to do when you get to! Hint: Hiking is always the best start.
