(SuperYachtWorld) -- Superyacht owner Andres Ergas describes the Patagonian coast of Chile as the most wonderful place on the planet, not just for fishing but for hiking, cruising and exploring.

He likes nothing more than to gather his friends together and set sail from Puerto Montt in Chile, 650 miles south of the capital Santiago, towards Patagonia.

Once there, he flies sorties using one of the two bright red Bell 407 helicopters he keeps aboard his explorer yacht "Atmosphere" to some of the world's most remote spots to explore, and of course, to fish.

There aren't many charters on which you can visit glaciers, explore volcano calderas, discover barely used trails, kayak in streams, drink yerba maté with local fisherman and play tag with killer whales.

But wherever "Atmosphere" cruises, an unexplored wilderness is not far away. Click through the gallery to get an inside look at this stunning landscape.
