Fjords in Patagonia, Chile. The southern part of the country has a dramatic coast, with numerous fjords and channels. The Spanish conquistadores were the first to explore the shoreline, which was difficult to navigate until a detailed map had been drawn.
Today this coast provides a waterway, since Chile is quite tough to navigate by land at some points. Meanwhile tourists are offered to explore the shoreline and fjords on a cruise.
