Punta Arenas

With port and sheep-breeding history, the gateway into Antartica will captivate you with its clean air and sophisticated European architecture.

Take a boat or a kayak along the Magellan Straits and you’ll be surprised by the penguins as they welcome you to Magdalena Island. Go on an adventure to Tierra del Fuego and discover the best kept secrets of the Kawesqar and Selk’nam people, indigenous to the southernmost part of Chile.

Go back in time walking around Punta Arenas’ cementary. Its beautiful gardens bring elegance to the tombs of historical characters of the area. If you like shopping, the duty free area is the ideal location to get souvenirs from your trip.

Stretch your legs walking around the Main Square and take in its traditions. The Statue of the Indian is waiting for you to kiss or touch its feet, which people say means you’ll be back.
