Review: Navimag, Puerto Natales to Puerto Montt, Chile

There are not many options for those wishing to travel from the south of Chile to the centre and so many chose to travel on the Navimag ferry through the Patagonian fjords from Puerto Natales to Puerto Montt. The trip takes 3 nights/2 days and varies in cost depending on what type of cabin you chose.  We paid around £200 for the cheapest option, but were actually upgraded to our own room! (woo!)

During your trip on board there are a variety of interesting talks on the fjords, history and culture of Chile. There was a really interesting session on Chilean Spanish which is quite different to Spanish spoken in other parts of South America.

During our trip the weather was grey and rainy so we were unfortunate and unable to see a lot of the beauty of the areas we travelled through.  We did however stop at a magnificent glacier which was just amazing to see.

On board you are certainly looked after and fed so much food!  With three good meals a day by the time you get off board you are desperate for some kind of exercise to work it all off!  The food was really good, and there was always a vegetarian option which was quite interesting.  I would recommend taking your own drinks on board as it makes the trip much cheaper for you.
