Highlights of Ferry along the Patagonian Fjords Route from Puerto Montt to Puerto Natales

Discover the beauty of the  virgin parks   and travel the  Southern Route  of the  Patagonian Channels   from  Puerto Montt  to  Puerto Natales

We invite you to leave behind the noise of the city and let yourself be seduced by the outstanding abundance of one of the purest settings:  the Patagonian canals

From the heart of  Reloncaví , the  Gulf of Ancud , the  Corcovado   or the  canal from Moraleda   to the beautiful spectacle of the descent of the  Costa mountain range on the Taitao peninsula .
A route in which the  Gulf of Penas   recalls the eternal route of the ancient aborigines, where the remains of the dismemberment of the  Cordillera de los Andes  give rise to small islands covered with  coihues, lengas and cypresses   of low height. A living testimony that is immersed in the  Southern Ice Fields  where the multi-colored waters that surround  Puerto Edén  greet passengers and host the last kawéskar of the area. 
Everything to end in  Puerto Natales , the gateway city to monumental natural landscapes such as the  Torres del Paine National Park , the Milodon Natural Monument and the  Los Glaciares National Park  in  Argentina .

How is the experience on board?
We are not a cruise ship, but a Ferry, that is, a ship that transports cargo and  passengers. Traveling in Navimag is like being in a Hostel that sails through Patagonia, since you can choose between sharing your cabin with other travelers or closing it for yourself if you want more privacy. Our journey is rather contemplative, without great luxuries but authentic. In which you can enjoy a moment of disconnection at the end of the world, you will share with a variety of people, you will have time to rest and recharge for your next trekking or adventure that you have programmed in Patagonia. 

Who travels in Navimag?
On our routes you will be able to meet a wide variety of people: travelers of different nationalities, local and transporters. The age range of our passengers is usually from 30 to 60 years old.

For whom is it recommended to travel with Navimag?
Our trip is ideal for slow travelers and backpackers. For those who experience the journey is as important as reaching the destination. For those who want to arrive or return from Patagonia in a different way from the traditional trips by plane or by land, to enjoy the beauty of the Patagonian fjords and the comfort and rest that a boat trip offers . For those who want to travel to the old. Those who want to meet and share with more people in a conversation or a board game. For those who are traveling by car, motorhome, bicycle or motorcycle. For those looking to disconnect and/or recharge. And for those who have a flexible itinerary, since the weather in Patagonia is unpredictable.
