This full-day excursion transports you 60 miles north of Punta Arenas, following an unforgettable drive through the extensive Patagonian pampas. Take advantage of the unique experience of photographing species of wild birds and mammals in their natural habitats. These animals include guanacos, culpeo and gray fox, hares, American ostriches called Ñandu, flamingos, black-necked swans, and more discreet animals like the armadillo piche and peludo, the chingue, and the famous condor and other raptors such as moorish eagles.

You will visit the largest condor colony in Chilean Patagonia, where, after a light walk, you will reach the foot of the rock wall that serves as a refuge for the condors. 

It promises to be an amazing journey through Chilean wildlife with an expert English-speaking guide!

During this unmissable journey you will enjoy unique landscapes surrounded by mountains, glaciers, and lenga and coihue forests. The marine life present in the area will not disappoint due to their proximity and abundance: sea lions, petrels, cormorants, southern dolphins, etc. You will realize that nature is truly a living force here!

We offer this excursion as a full-day tour cruising by boat. Immerse yourself in the stunning beauty of Patagonia from the comfort of your boat. Live the ultimate whale watching experience!

To deepen your adventure, consider a more active alternative. Opt for a full-day tour by kayak. You will reach the Francisco Coloane Marine Park sector, where the kayak experience begins. Get ready to paddle alongside the humpback whales! It is a true mesmerizing experience in nature.
