Patagonia, which is the entire bottom tip of South America (part Argentina and part Chile), has native people as well as researchers, adventurers and tourists.
The name Patagonia comes from a Spanish word that means “big feet.” The native people of Patagonia are much taller than the Spanish who named the area, so the name should really be from a word that means “big people!”
It is also called “The End of the World” because it is at the bottom of S. America.

Patagonia is a rugged and isolated area. Many of the people raise sheep. The girls in Patagonia get to ride horses! There are many beautiful places to hike and ride bikes, too.
