Punta Arenas, Chile Port

Punta Arenas is a hilltop town that overlooks the impressive Strait of Magellan. It used to be a major port in the world, serving as the final gateway before ships traversed Cape Horn, before the creation of the Panama Canal which saw a decline in vessels making that journey. It remains popular today thanks to its proximity to Antarctica, whilst it also acts as the entry point to Chilean Patagonia. Here you’ll find a wealth of breath-taking fjords, impressive mountains and winding rivers that create sensational landscapes for you to explore.

Within the town itself there are numerous exciting landmarks to enjoy, including the Sara Braun Museum, dedicated to one of the most powerful women in the 19th Century. The City Cemetery is unique in its design, acting almost as a micro-city with avenues that connect the impressive tombs of the founding families and colonies of the region. And on nearby Magdalena Island, you have the chance to visit to a colony of Magellanic penguins in their natural habitat, offering a thrilling opportunity to see these majestic birds up close.

The currency in Punta Arenas is the Chilean Peso. Punta Arenas is 3 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT -3).
