More than two thousand kilometers away from Santiago, is located the southernmost city in Chilean Patagonia: Punta Arenas. 

Founded in 1848, the capital of the Region of Magellan and Chilean Antarctica is today catalogued as one of the most beautiful cities in the country thanks to its outstanding architecture and privileged location on the northern shore of the Strait of Magellan.  

We will be surprised with the history of the city and even more with the history of the first inhabitants of Patagonia: aónikenk, kawésqar, selk'nam and yámanas. All this while we stay in the cozy and magical Hotel Haín, inspired by the famous ritual of initiation of young selk'nam people into adult life.

We will perform four yoga practices in the Hindu Temple of Punta Arenas guided by Paola Dalmazzo, a certified Hatha Yoga and Vinyasa Yoga instructor.

In addition, we will participate in a workshop of basketwork in junquillo dictated by a Kawésqar craftswoman and we will visit the Pali Aike National Park, famous for housing archaeological evidence of human populations with more than 11 thousand years of antiquity and for its more than five thousand hectares of forests, volcanoes, caves and pampas inhabited by guanacos, armadillos and rheas. In front of one of the Pali Aike craters, we will have a Hatha Yoga session guided by certified instructor Javiera Martín.

During our free time we can do optional activities such as ayurvedic therapies, excursions to the Magellan National Reserve, trekking to Mount Tarn, kayaking through the Strait of Magellan, trips to Bulnes Fort or visits to Magdalena Island to see its penguins (optional activities are not included in the price of the program).
