Tierra del Fuego embraces the romantic wilderness of Patagonia, a land of glaciers, immense granite massifs, and the barren, windswept southern tip where the Pacific and Atlantic oceans meet with the Antarctic seas.

The small town of Punta Arenas is the gateway to Chilean Tierra del Fuego and the Torres del Paine National Park, a three hour drive north.

The Land of Fire represents the last vestiges of civilisation, before the Andes break up and disappear into the sea and the open waters of the Drake Passage lead to the great abyss of Antarctica. Tierra del Fuego is a barren region of isolated bays, remote penguin and elephant seal colonies and dense Patagonian forests, and where huge glaciers tumble down snow-capped mountains and into the vast Chilean fjords. Specialist boat trips allow you to follow in the footsteps of the early intrepid explorers, traversing the mythical Beagle Channel and Magellan Straits and reaching the Cape Horn national park, where the Atlantic and Pacific oceans meet at the very end of the world.
