The reserva nacional magellanes lies just outside of downtown Punta Arenas and especially if you have your iwn wheels, it offer a few nice walks with beautiful vistas. The park rangres charge an entry fee (cash only), but fee is well worth it.

If you've ever hiked Barometer in Kodiak, or similar mountains, then this is very similar. I biked (mostly walked) up from the pier to the Reserve. No road signs, no macadam, and what roads are there are under construction, or appear that way. That said, it was worth it. Well run and well care for by the Chilean Corps of... More

Low level of difficulty hiking through the forest up to a great viewpoint overlooking Punta Arenas to the Strait of Magellan. Lots of wild rabbits everywhere, but no fox or puma sighting :-(

We arrived to the park by car. Free entrance. CONAF does not authorise excursions but we climbed the hill anyway, in time of year is not difficult. There is a sign saying to talk to the park guard to ask for authorised activities if you want to. We climbed the hill to find a panoramic view of Punta Arenas with... More

The instructions in their brochure for getting to the reserva are COMPLETELY wrong. At some unmarked street, you need to take a right and continue on for a couple miles. The ranger said they ären´t allowed¨ to put up signs, but couldn´t explain the incorrect instructions in the brochure. If you do make it, you will have all 7 kilometers... More

We had a long day in town from our cruise ship so opted to come hiking up here. Took a cab up and then did a pretty great hike through the forest to a lookout. It was sunny and cold the day we were there, but totally worth it. It did warm up as the day went on and the... More

This place is really close to town and gives you the chance of a few hours walking. There is nothing too outstanding about it but you do get nice views over Punta Arenas.

So I biked up (mountain bike necessary, rentals in town). The road is not really marked to the reserve, but I looked it up on Google maps before heading up, and pretty much had to guess when to turn right. Before that, follow the signed for Anden ski area. You go through the poor section of town, which was interesting... More

If you have a spare day while in Punta Arenas and the weather is good I would recommend going here. There are a couple of short hikes through pretty forest that opens up to some views over the city. Without rushing you could do both hikes that are currently open in under 3 hours. A taxi will set you back... More

I would not miss this place, we saw lots of penguins close to there. The roads were deserted (it was around Xmas).
