The greatness of Patagonia, with a famous changeable and windy weather, as well as its legendary landscapes, attracts many people to this huge region of South America. However, Eñaut has had the opportunity to explore and do expeditions to less known glaciers and remote mountain ranges, experiencing a personal journey to the most unknown Patagonia. Some of the glaciers are melting 100 times faster today than anytime in the past 350 years, and indeed faster than any major glacier area in the world. 

Eñaut Izagirre is from the Basque Country and a ski-mountaineering specialist with ski and climbing experience in the Pyrenees, Norway and the Alps, and recently in Patagonia. Now he lives in Punta Arenas (Chilean Patagonia), studying a MS in Glaciology and working at the University of Magallanes. He has participated in numerous sailing and kayaking expeditions into the Darwin Range and the Patagonian channels. In 2016 г. he headed the “Incognita Patagonia” project of the National Geographic Society.
