Special information

Navimag will take over ferry routes for passengers from November 2021.

  • 4 / 5 Days
  • Groupe : 1-10 people
  • Meeting point : Puerto Montt or Puerto Natales

Sailing along all of Patagonia, between fjords and channels, the new ferry Esperanza invites you to marvel at the beauty of the continent’s untouched southern fjords and forests.

You can reach Patagonia more quickly by plane. But choosing this cruise to do so gives you the time to unwind, to slow down, to appreciate the discovery of fabulous and completely uninhabited settings, along with thriving fauna. It’s to experience Patagonia by discovering its immensity.

The route connecting Puerto Montt to Puerto Natales (or inversely) is an excellent alternative to arrive in or depart from Patagonia and for those of you who also want to visit Torres del Paine National Park. Take your time, you won’t regret it!
