Punta Arenas

Walking tour Punta Arenas


The unique city of Punta Arenas is formed along the Strait of Magellan and has served as a starting point for many daring expeditions, inspiring famous explorers such as Magellan, Francis Drake, and even Charles Darwin to set out and discover the unknown. It is a melting pot of various cultures, each leaving a valuable historical and cultural legacy that is still preserved to this day. With a population of around 125,000 people, mostly descended from Croatian, Spanish, Italian, German, English immigrants and families from the Isla Grande de Chiloe, Punta Arenas is rich in history and traditions.

Your walking tour starts from your hotel and takes you around the must visit sights of Punta Arenas. One of the stops along the way is the Maggiorino Borgatello Museum, a treasure trove of heritage, with a collection of ethnological and natural history specimens, crafts from the Yaganes, Onas, and Alacalufes peoples, and a record of the first settlers' way of life. From Cerro Mirador, you'll get a panoramic view of the city and the Strait of Magellan, as well as take a stroll through the main streets and avenues, admiring the local architecture.

Finally, you'll end your tour at the city's waterfront at Muelle Loreto where you will be able to see various types of seabirds. Your guide will recommend some great local restaurants for lunch, and then you'll be on your own to grab a delicious bite to eat before making your way back to the hotel.
