Channel of Last Hope (Ultima Esperanza), Puerto Natales

(4.3/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Not as intimidating as it sounds, Channel of Last Hope (Ultima Esperanza) is a glacier-carved inlet filled with blue waters. The channel was named by the 16th-century Spanish explorer Juan Ladrillero, who felt the inlet was his last chance to reach the Strait of Magellan. Take a boat tour to see small glaciers, sea lions, and local birds. Note that a boat trip will take up most of your day and unpredictable weather may cause cancellations. Put Channel of Last Hope (Ultima Esperanza) into our Puerto Natales travel itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Be prepared for the cold since the area of glaciers has wind, fog and moisture. I recommend making it with Agunsa, very good service on board and comfortable boat.

  • Rich food, well served and fast. When you enter the restaurant, the atmosphere feels smell of fish and sea things. When we went the clothes had impregnated with the smell.
