Patagonia is a region in South America shared by Argentina and Chile. It’s a gorgeous area known for its natural beauty and scenery. Many travel to the region to enjoy outings and other outdoor activities. Kayaking in Patagonia is a fantastic option for those who want to embrace the land and experience first-hand all the beauty Patagonia has to offer. These spots are among the best for kayaking trips.

 

The reason Patagonia is such a fantastic region to explore by kayaking is because it’s mostly divided by rivers and surrounded by fjords. There are some routes that will take travelers through glacial lagoons, but then other paths will journey through dense forests. It’s a great trip because travelers can experience so many different elements of nature in one place.

 

There are a few different rivers to kayak through for these truly breathtaking experiences. For the adventurers looking for quiet yet wild, take a kayak into the waterways of Torres del Paine. It’s a national park that offers trails for the experienced kayaker or beginners. The river takes you through paths that include icebergs you can touch from the kayak. There are also areas where the water is a healthy peppermint blue.

 

For thrill seekers, Aysen’s rivers are a bit rougher and will bring you to remote corners where there are at times no sign of civilization. For these rivers, it’s advised to use a sea kayak so the hull can be filled with necessary supplies. However, those that are inexperienced can still take this trip because not all the routes are difficult.

Bitter Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.
