Rio Gallegos image

The city of Rio Gallegos, once a strategic refuelling point on trans-polar flights from Buenos Aires to Australia and New Zealand, is at the mouth of the Gallegos river. A good tarmac road leads west towards Calafate and the Andean glaciers, and the river is well known amongst anglers for both sea trout and steelhead runs.

Otherwise this is sheep country, which until the 1960's had more communication with the Falkland Islands than it did with the capital.
