Day 1

Punta Arenas – Day at Leisure in Punta Arenas

The city of Punta Arenas overlooks the Strait of Magellan in the southern corners of Chilean Patagonia. The historic port and a tradition of sheep-breeding has supported the sophisticated European architecture wrapping around Plaza Muñoz Gamero. Opulent mansions reminiscent of the regional wool-boom decorate the skyline in view of the statue of Ferdinand Magellan, which was erected to commemorate the voyager’s 400th anniversary. Your flight will land at Presidente Carlos Ibáñez del Campo International Airport, where your private transfer escorts you to the luxurious Hotel Cabo de Hornos.

Your gorgeous accommodations are located in the heart of town near the main square of La Plaza Central. The building harkens back to the days when Punta Arenas stood as the capital of Chile’s “white gold” rush, referring to the quick pace and incredible demand of wool in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The cozy ambiance welcomes you to Chile with views of the stunning cityscape and reflective waters from the Strait of Magellan. The light and cheerful décor of your room effortlessly combines the history of Hotel Cabo de Hornos with the comforts of modern luxury.

Before you explore the charms of Punta Arenas, you will meet with the celebrated photographer and local guide, Justin Hofman, for more insight into the remarkable adventure to come. The acclaimed photographer, scuba diver, and naturalist has a spent a career documenting wildlife acquiring an extensive knowledge of ecology and animal behavior along the way. After meeting Justin and your guide, you will set out to visit Cementerio Municipal, one of the most interesting cemeteries in South America. Elegant and opulent tombs decorate the grounds, which contrasts with the humbler graves of immigrants who often worked the farms. The grand José Menéndez’s tomb is an imitation of the Vittorio Emanuele II monument in Rome, made to scale.
