Fitz Roy and El Calafate in Los Glaciares National Park. You could make a trip to Punta Arenas, also in Chile, and visit an island home to a colony of Magellanic penguins. For a true cultural excursion, hike around the Cape Horn Biosphere Reserve,which is located at the southern tip of the continent and is home to indigenous Yagan people as well as the rugged Dientes de Navarino mountain range.
