The reserva nacional magellanes lies just outside of downtown Punta Arenas and especially if you have your iwn wheels, it offer a few nice walks with beautiful vistas. The park rangres charge an entry fee (cash only), but fee is well worth it.

If you've ever hiked Barometer in Kodiak, or similar mountains, then this is very similar. I biked (mostly walked) up from the pier to the Reserve. No road signs, no macadam, and what roads are there are under construction, or appear that way. That said,...More

Low level of difficulty hiking through the forest up to a great viewpoint overlooking Punta Arenas to the Strait of Magellan. Lots of wild rabbits everywhere, but no fox or puma sighting :-(

This place is really close to town and gives you the chance of a few hours walking. There is nothing too outstanding about it but you do get nice views over Punta Arenas.

So I biked up (mountain bike necessary, rentals in town). The road is not really marked to the reserve, but I looked it up on Google maps before heading up, and pretty much had to guess when to turn right. Before that, follow the signed...More

If you have a spare day while in Punta Arenas and the weather is good I would recommend going here. There are a couple of short hikes through pretty forest that opens up to some views over the city. Without rushing you could do both...More

I would not miss this place, we saw lots of penguins close to there. The roads were deserted (it was around Xmas).
