Most tours of Chilean Patagonia are based out of Punta Arenas as this quaint, frigid, small city has southern Chile's largest airport and is used to access Torres del Paine, flight-cruises to Antarctica, the Straits of Magellan and even several penguin colonies including the Magdelena Penguin Colony and the King Penguin colony.  One of our favorite cruises explores the fjords & glaciers of the Chilean coast sails between Punta Arenas and Usuaia, Argentina. There are several excellent hotels in Punta Arenas, and many tours of Patagonia stay a night or more here. The downtown & central plaza are charming and worth a stroll, but travelers really come for the expansive Patagonian wilderness surrounding Punta Arenas. Contact one of our Chile travel specialists for help designing the perfect tour to Punta Arenas today.
