Torres del Paine: Located in the southern park of the Patagonia, this one includes mountains, glaciers, lakes, and rivers. It’s also home to pumas and the guanaco, a close relative of the llama.

Cerro Castillo National Park: Found in the Aysén Region, this environment is home to the Andean condor, which is largely considered to be the largest bird of prey in the world. The species was classified as endangered, but in recent years it has been making a comeback.

Conguillío National Park: Part of the Andes, this park is home to the Llaima volcano as well as the endangered Araucaria, better known as the monkey puzzle tree.

Laguna San Rafael National Park: On the Pacific coast of southern Chile sits this park that is home to the San Rafael Glacier. The series follows the leopard seals that can be found here.

Diego Ramirez Islands: A group of subantarctic islands, this region is in the middle of some of the most precarious waters on the planet. They’re also home to grey-headed and black-browed albatrosses as well as southern rockhopper penguins.
