Full day Tour in Punta Arenas and the surroundings

City Tour in Punta Arenas (2 1/2 hours)
Punta Arenas with a population of 135. 000 inhabitants is the capital city of the Region known as Magallanes after the Strait. The most spectacular places to visit are doubtless the Mirador Cross Hill, the Museums, the cementery of the city where we can find perfect avenues of cipress trees and also mausoleums showing part of the history of Punta Arenas, which was the first city in Chile to have electricity as well as telephone service due to all the European inmigrants who migrated to this, the southernmost city in the world, attracted by the wide range of economic activities once offered by the chilean government.

Penguin colony at Magdalena Island (4 hours)
Every year, thousands of Magellanic Penguins return to this colony in Magdalena Island, to nest and breed their chicks until the end of the summer season when the young ones are ready to swim on their own and mature enough to start the long journey back to northern areas with their parents

A Recent Review of this tour

Maritza was a great tour guide. As I was preparing to book this excursion, she was willing to answer all my questions in a quick and timely manner. Once she picked us up, she gave us a great tour of the Punta Arenas and told us lots about the city. She explained everything about the day and so we were well prepared. We wanted to purchase some very specific items and Maritza helped us to find them.
