Patagonia Photo Tours: What Should You Photograph?

Patagonia photo tours are something you're likely to be investigating if you are heading to this breath-taking region that sits across Argentina and Chile. Whether you consider yourself a seasoned photographer or not, it's good to be prepared for the sights that are the best to snap in the area.

Whatever the location, wildlife photography tours are incredibly popular; and nowhere more so than in Patagonia, which has a lot to offer in this department. One such location that should be on everyone’s list of places to visit is the Punta Tombo Magellanic Penguin colony. The area can be affected by bad weather, so make sure to check in advance for the conditions you should expect and prepare accordingly. The colony of over half a million near-threatened native penguins also attracts other birds – giant petrels, cormorants and even black oystercatchers. Whale-watching is an incredibly popular activity at Puerto Madryn, with the location being a primary breeding ground for the southern right whale from June until about December. This has the potential to offer that dream, once-in-a-lifetime shot that every photographer wants. However, if you want to look for photography tours that offer chances of photography on roads less traveled, it's worth heading to Camarones. This sleepy coastal village offers a relaxed atmosphere with understated scenic backdrops. Finally, there is the Glaciar Perito Moreno to the south of Parque Nacional Los Glaciares. This stunning glacial mass sits 60m high, 30km long and 5km wide – offering a perfect opportunity to capture stunning environmental shots on your trip.
