If your taste for adventure runs to large scale scenes of dramatic tide water glaciers, coastlines littered with icebergs and the occasional whale and big water then Patagonia's coastline is worth a look. Paddling amongst the fjords between systems of channels gives the feeling of being an intrepid explorer.

This is the kind of place where you need to go with people who know what they're on about and with reliable gear. Locals tend to have the best knowledge, but the language barrier may be an issue so having some Spanish will help.

There is some public land set aside for camping but in this kind of setting there are limited options with only a few inlets offering suitable flat, dry ground.

You need to be an outdoor enthusiast but not necessarily a very experienced kayaker, you can go tandem with a local guide. You're also conveniently located near the Torres del Paine for more huge scenery.
