Chile: South

The Chilean part of Patagonia is characterized by the humid, cool climate of the western Andes and the associated valdivian rainforest. Characteristic for this region is the everlasting strong wind. In the west of Patagonia’s southern tip of Chile lies the Chilean inland ice, the largest contiguous ice mass outside the two poles and Greenland. Patagonia also includes the southern foothills of the Andes and the subantarctic island region of Tierra del Fuego, which lies off the South American mainland. (Source: Wikipedia)
