    hrs Estimate Duration
  • Meal

Discover the charm of the most southerly city in the world, learn how the natives and the first European settlers lived in this rugged land, and enjoy typical Patagonian hospitality.


A sightseeing drive around this bustling frontier town introduces you to the capital of the Magallanes Region. See the main square and stop at Cerro la Cruz for panoramic views. Visit the Maggiorino Borgatello Museum, founded by the Salesian missionaries, it provides a comprehensive overview of the regional flora and fauna, the habitat of the indigenous people of the region and local history. You’ll see Pioneer Cemetery, lined by tall cypresses and grand mausoleums and the burial place of the last, now extinct Ona Indians.


Head south on a very scenic road, skirting the Strait of Magellan to Fort Bulnes, the first Chilean settlement in Patagonia, founded in 1843, with only 21 inhabitants. This reconstruction will show you how these men and women lived on this rugged land. You’ll have sweeping views from the fort towards the Strait of Magellan. Enjoy a typical Patagonian lunch to complement your southernmost experience.
