Your private tour begins in the historical centre of Punta Arenas, the place where it all began. Your local guide will talk about the history of the city as they lead you to the first stop of the day, which is perfect if you’ve not had breakfast yet. Choriqueso and banana milk is the breakfast of choice for local Patagonians and you’ll see why as we taste them both at one of our favourite local spots.
After filling up with a traditional breakfast, we’ll walk it off with a gentle stroll along the coast, admiring spectacular sea views. Make sure you keep an eye open for dolphins and albatross. We’ll pass by some beautiful street art murals and stop to take plenty of photos.
Next up is the iconic Maggiorino Burgatello museum where all your question’s about the region’s past and its stunning wildlife will be answered.
Our walk continues to one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the world. We’ll introduce you to some of the residents and give you plenty of time to explore this peaceful hidden gem.
We’ll head back to the city centre next, either on foot or via public transport — you choose, it’s your day! Along the way we´ll stop to visit the viewpoint on La Cruz Hill, where we’ll enjoy fabulous views across the colourful city of Punta Arenas with the Strait of Magellan as a backdrop.
Our tour will end with even more delicious local food, this time we’re hitting up the seafood market where quality handicrafts and mouth-watering street food go hand in hand. We’ll take you to a special spot where you will try the best king crab empanada and calafate sour cocktail of your life!
Local legend suggests that if you try the calafate sour, you will definitely come back to Patagonia. We hope this is true so that we can welcome you back again! Before you go, don’t forget to ask your local guide for more tips and on what else to see, do and eat during your stay.

Local tip: If is raining, don't bother to bring an umbrella, as the wind usually breaks them. We recommend a waterproof jacket with hood instead.

In the unlikely event of an emergency situation, natural disaster or natural event, they can order park, road and maritime crossing closures. Therefore in cases of emergencies in the region of Magellan and the Chilean Antarctic, we are governed by what ONEMI says. We will notify you of any tour cancellations with as much notice as we can.
