A small taste of Chile

Punta Arenas

We left Puerto Natales on a very quiet Sunday morning in a bus to Punta Arenas. We didn't know that these buses had a stop at the Punta Arenas airport on the way. We could have went straight to the airport instead of spending a couple nights in Punta Arenas.

Hiking the W circuit in Parque Nacional Torres del Paine

First Day: Puerto Natales to Campamento Torres

Puerto Natales being the closest city to Torres del Paine National Park, we decided a good trek was needed to get our land legs back! Because we didn't have a fixed schedule, we were able to wait for a good weather window. We took the bus from Puerto Natales bus station to La Porteria Laguna Amarga, one of the three entry points in the park.

Last moments of sailing : after over 2 months at sea

Cruising along the Chilean Patagonia

We made it to Chile today! In the afternoon, we entered the fjords through the Magellan Straight . It was so nice and different to steer while looking at mountains instead of endless water. We put the sails down and started to motor as the sun was setting.
