Tucked far away on the southernmost tip of South America are the majestic ice-clad Chilean Fjords. So remote is this area, Darwin and the first explorers called this isolated landscape "the edge of the world." Made up of a complex network of glacier-lined canals, the fjords are an epic display of the power of ice. This Patagonian ice sheet that blankets the Andes Mountains is the third largest ice mass on the planet! Massive icebergs calve regularly into the oceans while subpolar forests flourish thanks to the abundant summer waterfalls. For all the scenery's calm gravitas, the fjords buzz with animal activity. Humpback whales make their serene migration through the deep, icy waters, and pods of dolphins play in the wake of passenger ships — the most popular mode of transport for locals. Hundreds of species of seabirds flock to the area, while Magellanic penguins come to the fjords to build their nests on exposed grassy beaches. One of the best things to do in the Chilean Fjords is to simply kick back, grab a mug of hot cocoa and enjoy the view.
