Punta Arenas Travel

“Overlooking the Straits of Magellan, the southernmost city of Punta Arenas thrives amidst some of nature’s most extreme elements. Despite rapid growth, the city remains tranquil and pleasant, and is an excellent starting point to begin exploring the truly spectacular surrounding scenery.”

Punta Arenas Tour Pictures, Chile Travel, Chile For Less

Punta Arenas is the gateway to the grandiose nature found in the Chilean southern Patagonia, including Torres del Paine National Park (see Puerto Natales) and Tierra del Fuego, as well as numerous lakes, fjords, and glaciers. In these stunning landscapes, among fragmenting glaciers and teetering peaks, travelers can also spot flamingos, penguins, and ñandus (local ostrich).

Unique in Chile for its European architecture and dramatic climate, Punta Arenas is small enough to explore on foot while offering numerous attractions for visitors.

Punta Arenas is often referred to as the gateway city to Antarctica. Originally established as a penal colony, Punta Arenas soon became an important supply station for ships prior to the completion of the Panama Canal. Today, with its population of 115,000, the city remains a pleasant place sprinkled with interesting, painted wooden buildings as well as excellent seafood restaurants.

Our trip was incredibly successful in three different countries: Chile, Brazil and Peru. And in every instance, the coordination of details and execution were impeccably accurate regardless of the country visited. Success at every stage was achieved regardless of location, the weather, the country and/or the time of day or night we traveled and were sight-seeing.

What to do in Punta Arenas

Punta Arenas Tour: The best way to get to know this fascinating city and its interesting history is to take a walking tour. From the Mirador there is a brilliant view of the Straits of Magellan and Tierra del Fuego, as well as the city and its main neighborhoods and avenues.

This city is home to one of the finest regional museums in the country, Museo Regional Salesiano Mayorino Borgatello, which offers a fascinating introduction to the history of Patagonia’s indigenous people. Visitors can also tour the maritime museum and learn about shipwrecks and pirates, walk through an opulent mansion and a fascinating cemetery, or hike to the Devil’s Throat, a gorge with sweeping views of Punta Arenas and Tierra del Fuego.

Penguin Tour: Just 40 miles from Punta Arenas, in the northeastern part of the Brunswick peninsula stands the Monumento Natural los Pinguinos on Isla Magdalena. From November to early February, about 60,000 specimens of the Magallanes species (Spheniscus magellanicus) use this place to nest. This is a great opportunity to witness a slice of the charming life-cycle of these penguins as they lay their eggs and wait for them to incubate, and eventually hatch. The adults leave the colony and go to the sea in the middle of March, but return to the same colony year after year.

Reserva Forestal Magallanes: Located just over four miles west of Punta Arenas, this 52 square mile (13,500 ha) reservation known as the Parque Japones offers nature trails with paths that take from 45 minutes to two days to hike. The trails will take you through lenga and coigue trees before reaching a lookout point over the Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Throat), a gorge with superb views over Punta Arenas and Tierra del Fuego.

When to visit Punta Arenas

The Punta Arenas climate is greatly moderated due to its proximity to the ocean. Still, a warm shell and thick layers are necessary no matter when you travel to this southern port.

The snowy season is from June to September while the warmer season is from November to March. No matter which season you travel through, keep your jacket close to protect yourselves from the cold, piercing winds.

If your Chile travel happens to fall in the month of February, you can take part in the Muestra custumbrista de Chiloe, when the local Chilote Community celebrates its culture. Around June 21st is the Carnaval de Invierno, with celebrations marking the winter solstice on the weekend closest to the 21st.
