Patagonia is one of the most amazing places in the world. A land with a lot of history. A land of mountains, lakes, hills, flora and fauna beautiful with the past of the aborigines known for its huge footprints (that's why it's called Patagonia). A missionary named Father Agostini said: "The Bread Massif is unmatched … In its colors and form it is without doubt one of the most fantastic and spectacular objectives that the human imagination can convince."
To reach the Chilean patagonia you have to reach the city of Punta Arenas. Punta Arenas, in the main city of this area, and has perfect accommodation from hostels to 4-star hotels. Some hotels are housed in historic buildings and still retain their original construction from the early 20th century. There are hotels such as Finis Terrae Hotel, with panoramic views of the city and the Strait of Magellan in its restaurant on the 6th floor. Hotel José Nogueira is located in a historic building that reminds of the ancient history of these regions.
START: There are many direct or one-stop flights from major cities to Santiago de Chile and then at least 3 daily flights to Punta Arenas, which is 4 hours from Santiago de Chile (2000 miles). To travel by water, you can take a cruise to Puerto Natales from Puerto Montt on an amazing 3-day trip on the southern canals.
Travel Tips: Southern weather can be unpredictable. Consider taking with you and wearing more layers of clothing in response to a wide variety of temperatures and weather conditions. Patagonia's experience with a low budget is possible, although it requires planning. From October to March the room prices are higher. Winter months are becoming more and more popular, especially for sports activities. During this time of year, hotel rates fall by up to half. We wish you a pleasant and safe trip!
