DETAILED ITINERARY

Day 1: Santiago de Chile

Enjoy the pristine views of the rolling peaks of the bordering Andes Mountains in Santiago, a vibrant capital city of Latin America. The snow-capped summits, scrumptious meals of fresh seafood inside the center hangers, and the hill of San Cristobal are some of the attractions that will take your heart away. Witness the lavish panorama of the rooftops stretching to the foothills of the Andes offered by the hill of San Cristobal which is simply stunning.

Day 2: Entering Torres del Paine

On the second day of your trip, step out on the streets of the city and start exploring it on your own. Take metros to travel long distances and see how paintings - hanged on the stations -  depict a visual history of Chile divided into the past and the present. The remarkable colors brighten the station, telling tales of the Spanish conquest and student protests. Once you are done with this, take a flight to Punta Arenas, Chile’s gateway to Patagonia. Roam around the historic mansions erected during the wool boom continue to encircle Plaza Munoz Gamero. Rest on the flashy tombs occupied by wealthy barons, alongside humble resting places for historical immigrants.

Day 3: Spotting Penguins on Tucker Islet

See how lush grassy hills slope into the sea. Feel the cool air filled with the salty-sweet aroma of the water. Do not miss to spot elephant seals lingering on the coastline. They can grow more than six feet long and weigh more than 6,600 pounds. The ship anchors in view of Tucker Islet. All this you will see while enjoying a breathtaking view of Magellanic penguins roaming on the boulder-clad beach before the boat docks. Cormorants fly overhead, and pebbles fill the shore as you reach the sporadic tufts of grass.

Not only this. Watch the Black plumage covering the Penguins’ backs and bordering their white torsos. You can enjoy all this without letting the penguins know about your presence. The penguins are not bothered by the visitor’s presence and this gives you an all-natural view to witness.

Day 4: Facing the Exciting View of Glaciers

Wake up in the morning and look out your window to see the exquisite landscape of Patagonia outside. See how the deep azure water brushes against the cruise ship. Get marveled by the charismatic view of mountains that are the perfect complement to the sky. While traveling through the Beagle Channel, named after the ship carrying Charles Darwin during his South American exploration in the 19th century, you will get to spot so many water-loving things that can be cherished throughout the life. The moment the ship gets closer to the glacier, you will get to see a detailed view of the ice, floating and forming unique shapes, spikes, valleys, and formations on the surface.

Day 5: Delving into the Mesmerizing Landscape of Cape Horn

Patagonia witness an inspiring landscape with a blend of rugged mountains and pristine ice, opulent waters, and lush forest. Cape Horn is one of the places that allow you witness all the mesmerizing features of this landscape altogether at one place. There are many things that make this place special for all Patagonia visitors. The cliffs of the continent tower above the ocean at 1,394 feet above sea level. A tender monument was erected in tribute to sailors lost to the seas while traveling around the cape. The wind blows strong across the landscape. The greenery brightens the craggy edges of the cliffs. The metal monument was placed at the top of the hillside, crowning a wooden-paved pathway. The Magellanic forests and lenga trees towering over the beaches add more charm to the beauty of Patagonia.
