PUERTO MONTT -> PUERTO NATALES
Navimag, 4 days / 3 nights, ferry with cabins, from US$ 350
This is one of the most popular ways to get to the southern edge of the country, and approach to the Torres del Paine National Park, since it is impossible to reach this distant region by road through Chile. The travel is considered as a "one way", because people who sail to Puerto Natales usually continue their trip into Argentina and Tierra del Fuego, or prefer to fly back. Nevertheless, this journey is considered an experiencie in itself, due to the slow way of entering this magnificent landscape of narrow channels and solitary islands. It is also possible to do this trip the other way round, from Puerto Natales back to Puerto Montt.
 

There is no passenger transport on this route between June and September 2017.

First trip Puerto Montt > Puerto Natales: 29 September
First trip Puerto Natales > Puerto Montt: 3 October

Itinerary

The ferry leaves Puerto Montt, and sails through the quiet waters of the Ancud Gulf, protected by the numerous islands of the Chiloé's Archipelago. After crossing the Moraleda Channel, the boat sails through the Penas Gulf, the only part of the journey at open seas. After some hours, the navigation continues through protected channels. The journey goes through the channels White, Sarmiento and Concepción, arriving on the morning of the 4th day in Puerto Natales.
