Patagonia on Kayak : Exploring Patagonia's Western Fjords

Earlier this year Ruggero Arena and Silvano Samaretz returned from an expedition to the Western Fjords of Patagonia.

The expedition goal was to explore by kayak and on foot the little known area west of the Patagonia Hielo Norte Ice Cap. The Patagonian Ice Fields are among the least explored places on Earth. Divided into two, the Northern and Southern Patagonian Ice Fields constitute world's third-largest continental mass of ice, after Antarctica and Greenland.

The expedition lasted 20 days, using two Advanced Elements Airfusion Kayaks as the primary way of moving in the area, through the fjord, rivers and lakes.

Have a look at the photographs of their trip. Simply stunning!
