Since 2015, medical services professional Todd Belok has served as a mental health technician at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia. An avid traveler, Todd Belok has visited a number of areas around the world, including Patagonia.
A popular travel destination for those who love the outdoors, Patagonia is a beautiful, remote and rugged region on the southern end of South America. This immense territory is shared by Argentina and Chile and features a diverse landscape comprising soaring mountains, massive glaciers, evergreen forests, and windblown plateaus.
Adventure seekers who travel to the area will enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, including hiking, skiing, kayaking, and trekking on horseback. Some of the most popular places to explore in Patagonia include Torres del Paine, Los Glaciares, Tierra del Fuego, and the region’s other three national parks.
Although there are a number of tour operators working in the region, booking a tour is not a necessity, and many travelers find that it is very easy to enjoy Patagonia without one. With unpredictable weather year-round, there is no one best time to visit Patagonia, but the region is generally warmer and more accessible from December through February.
