Private Panoramic & Fort Bulnes Tour

Your private driver will collect you for insights and a panoramic view of the city of Punta Arenas before seeing the Magellan Strait from the La Cruz Hill. The Salesian Museum, dedicated to Patagonia heritage, is the next point of interest. Thereafter, the Patagonia Institute's vintage automobiles make an appearance, prior to seeing the well preserved tombs of pioneers in the cemetery nearby. Finally, you'll visit historic Fort Bulnes, one of the southernmost forts in the world. The internationally inspired architecture and natural wonders like the Andes Mountains guarantee a delightful tour.

Originally a penal colony enacted to ensure dominance of the Magellan Strait, today Punta Arenas is home to Artisan shops, an Archaeological Museum, and an impressive cathedral. Upon arriving in the town, your private driver will bring you to La Cruz Hill for an outstanding panoramic view of the Magellan Strait.

The Strait is the most vital natural passage between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Visitors enjoy seeing it from land, whereas sailors revere the Strait because of the untamed winds and currents.

Thereafter, you'll proceed to the Salesian Museum. Named for the site's first director, Father Maggiorino Borgatello, the 1,700 square foot museum covers the region's heritage, from the artifacts of the native Yamana, Ona, Tehuelche, and Alacalufe peoples to the impact of the missionaries and colonists.

Next, you'll be escorted to the Patagonia Institute to see a bevy of antique cars and machinery used by pioneering folks in the region. And what trip back in time would be complete without a visit to the local cemetery? You'll see the the tombs, gardens, and cypress stands.

Prior to returning to port, you'll visit the rustic, Fort Bulnes, a replica of the original built in 1843 to colonize the area and guard the The Strait. See the chaplain's quarters, the prison, church, and post office. Book this comprehensive adventure for a day of Chilean beauty and heritage.
