CHILE’S ICONIC SOUTHERN HIGHWAY
The Carretera Austral

Chile’s iconic southern highway, the Carretera Austral opens access to Patagonia’s towering mountains, virgin forests, hanging glaciers and villages trapped in time. Highlights include the privately-owned Pumalín Park; the tumbling Futaleufú River; Queulat National Park with its hanging glacier; and the picturesque Simpson Valley. The road ends at the impassable barrier of the South American icefield.
