Punta Arenas, Patagonia, Chile
This part and Sound of Patagonia is literally where Magellan discovered that the World is in fact round! After looking for a way to get through to the Pacific Ocean several times without any success, The Sound of Last Hope was just that…his last hope and from here, came the straits of Magellan and the World as we know it today. To be able to be in a small Zodiac boat in this Sound, and see and hear these fascinating historical facts was truly an unforgettable moment that we will never forget. The water is a green color with the mountains, lush landscape and glaciers surrounding it and feeding into it. It is a place that we look forward to returning to in the near future.
