A voyage through the Strait of Magellan is an exhilarating experience, offering the traveler extraordinary sights of untamed natural beauty. Located on the western side of the strait, Punta Arenas is the capital of the Magallanes Region and the bustling center of one of the world’s largest sheep farming areas. Visitors to this most southern part of the world should keep in mind that this is frontier land; the most attractive features are found in the rugged nature and indigenous wildlife, trying to exist in often harsh and unpredictable weather conditions.
