Want to get out of town? Then head to Patagonia.
The vast region in the southern part of South America ranges across both Chile and Argentina. Its unique wildlife, diverse geography and climate give tourists a wide range of offerings -- whether that's trekking across glaciers, white-water rafting, admiring the wildlife or relaxing along the coast.
The best time to visit the region is during the spring or summer months, which occurs from the end of October through early March. Need some convincing? See for yourself:
CLARIFICATION: Language has been updated to clarify that Patagonia is a region shared by Chile and Argentina, as opposed to a region located between the two countries.
