Southern Patagonia & Tierra del Fuego Highlights

Parque Nacional Torres del Paine – The major goal of most visitors to Chile's Southern Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego is to do the “W” trek through the windy wilds of this national park near Puerto Natales


Navigate the Patagonian channels and fjords – Whether a short ride across Seno de Última Esperanza, from Puerto Natales to Parque Nacional Bernardo O'Higgins or on the grand-daddy of them all, Navimag's Canales Patagónicos ferry from Puerto Montt to Puerto Natales, this is the way to get up-close to dolphins, sea lions, glaciers and a cornucopia of sea birds. If southern horizons are calling to you, wend through the channels from Punta Arenas to Isla Navarino and Cabo de Hornos (Cape Horn).


Penguins – Who could refuse an afternoon outing with these tuxedoed birds? Catch them at Monumento Natural Isla de Magdalena in the strait of Magellan or at the pingüinera at Seno Otway, both accessible from Punta Arenas


Parque Nacional Pali Aike – In the lunar landscape of volcanic slag, guanaco, nandú (lesser rhea) and armadillos roam. Also marvel at the rock paintings by ancient people.


Steam across the Straits of Magellan from Punta Arenas to Porvenir, where you can enjoy premier birdwatching and trout fishing, pass an afternoon chatting with a real-live, modern-day gold prospector, or trek the Cordillera Darwin
