Channel of Last Hope (Ultima Esperanza), Puerto Natales

(170+ reviews on the web)
Geologic Formation Nature / Park
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.

  • Rich and abundant, food good. Missing a bit of atmosphere, improve music and decor to make it more warm and pleasant.
