Visit Magallanes


The Magallanes region of Chile is a sparsely populated area at the southern tip of South America. Its rugged landscape is dominated by the towering snow-capped peaks of the Andes and the vast arid expanse of Patagonia. The region has been a traditional home to various Chilean indigenous groups, including the Selk'nam people who first inhabited this land thousands of years ago.

This unique area offers stunning views, breathtaking glaciers and unforgettable sunsets over vast plains that make it an ideal place for outdoor enthusiasts in search of adventure. Popular tourist activities include hiking, camping and horseback riding through Torres del Paine National Park or visiting Cueva del Milodon Natural Monument to learn about its fascinating natural history.

One interesting historical fact about Magallanes is that it was once part of Argentina until 1973 when it was annexed by Chile as part of the Treaty of Peace and Friendship between both countries. This treaty ended decades-long border disputes in Patagonia and officially established their current international boundaries today.
