Description of Fjordland

Fjordland in Chile is one of the most beautiful regions in the country and all of South America. Fjordland is famous for its fjords or deep ocean islets carved by glaciers over a course of thousands of years. The height of the glacier in this are reach a height of 200 feet or 61 meters. The shores are are steep and high. The best way to explore these lands is by renting a boat or a ship that are commonly touring these areas. The tides in the Fjordland are regular and not very strong, except in the English Narrows, where they can create a significant drop in sea level.

 

Fjordland was used mostly by vessels desiring to avoid the heavy seas and bad weather that is commonly experienced on passing into the Pacific Ocean from the western end of the Strait of Magellan. Large steamers hid in the Fjordland and resumed their journey once the storm has passed.
