Full Description

Parque Nacional Yendegaia offers a visually spectacular tour of one of Earth’s most remote and scenic national parks. In Chilean Patagonia on the grand island of Tierra del Fuego, the new park designated in 2014 was prompted by a donation of private land to the Chilean park system. Combined with adjacent federal land, the new protected area covers some 372,000 acres, and forms a habitat linkage between existing national parks in Chile and Argentina. Thus, the new Yendegaia National Park has helped establish one of the planet’s most significant transboundary protected areas, or “peace parks.” During multiple expeditions to Yendegaia in various seasons, renowned nature photographer Antonio Vizcaíno captured the harsh beauty of a place few have known, a remote land at the end of the world where glacier-carved peaks, untamed rivers, windblown steppe, and Earth’s southernmost forests combine to create a biologically unique and stunningly beautiful landscape. For both armchair adventurers who dream of Patagonia and intrepid travellers planning a trip to Chile, Parque Nacional Yendegaia is a must-have a collector’s volume with art book production standards. Text in Spanish.
