Enjoy the salt breeze on your face as you glide through the cold waters of the strait aboard a zodiac boat, masterfully captained by seasoned professionals.

After you arrive at Cabo Froward, set out on a short, beginner-friendly but steep hike through the temperate rainforest up to the Cruz de los Mares monument. From your vantage point above the water, you’ll marvel at 360 degree views of the peaks and glaciers of the Patagonian and Fuegian Andes. 

Enjoy a picnic lunch of fresh, local ingredients on the beach, keeping your eyes out to spot whales, sea lions, and even the occasional penguin. 

Returning, you’ll explore secret bays and hike along sandy beaches, enjoying the changing scenery as the tide comes in.

On the way back to Punta Arenas, stop off at a historical ranch house for a meal of traditional Patagonian flavours served by a family of legendary Patagonian gauchos.
