Throughout the pandemic, we'll keep publishing news to help you navigate the state of travel today (like whether travel insurance covers the coronavirus), as well as stories about places for you to put on your bucket list once it's safe to start going more far-flung.

Patagonia has dozens of famous rivers, but none more breathtaking than the Futaleufú. Located in the Trevelin area on the Argentine side of Patagonia, I try to visit whenever I can to take pictures and fish. The only challenge is not getting distracted by the scenery.
