ITINERARY

Detailed Itinerary and Activities

 

Note: This trip starts from Punta Arenas, Chile. We recommend you arrive the day before the trip starts. Our Operations Department can make all your flight arrangements (international and domestic) from Santiago de Chile or other routes as well as to arrange private ground transfers either from El Calafate or Ushuaia, in Argentina.


Day 1 • Punta Arenas –• Torres del Paine National Park

Today we will have an exciting and productive drive towards Torres del Paine National Park; we will be fascinated by the changing landscapes and vegetation comprising the Patagonian steppes, the Chilean Fjords and the southern Andes. On route, we will check at some alkaline ponds to attempt to find one of the world’s most sought-after waders, Magellanic Plover. We will also look for other Patagonian specialties including Lesser Rhea, Least Seedsnipe, Band-tailed Earthcreeper, Chocolate-vented Tyrant and White-bridled (Canary-winged) Finch. Large herds of camel-relative Guanaco will be a common sight along the entire drive towards Puerto Natales and other mammals potentially include Southern Grey Fox, Patagonian Hairy Armadillo and Patagonian Hog-nosed Skunk. The scenic town of Puerto Natales will be a delightful stop to study the abundance of waterfowl occurring along the coast of the Last Hope Fjord. Lots of Black-necked and Coscoroba Swans, together Chiloe Wigeon, Yellow-billed Teal, Yellow-billed Pintail and Crested Duck breed and feed here. This coast, influenced by the Pacific Ocean, is also frequented by Imperial Cormorant, Chilean Skua, Dolphin Gull and South American Tern. Occasionally pods of the endemic Chilean Dolphin are found in these waters.We will continue heading northwards to reach one of the most scenic places on Earth, Torres del Paine. The Andean foothills and scrub are home of Black-chested Buzzard, Southern and Chimango Caracaras, but surely our group will be impressed at the moment our first Andean Condor is spotted. Our lodge is located in the southern fringes of the park and has good access to productive habitats where we expect to find Ashy-headed and Upland Geese, Spectacled Duck, South American Snipe, Austral Parakeet, Austral Pygmy Owl and Dark-bellied Cinclodes.

Overnight at Hotel Rio Serrano, Torres del Paine (Lunch, Dinner)(Guide).

Day 2 • Torres del Paine National Park

We will have an early start to explore this vast national park and its many birding habitats. We will commence by exploring its western flank and bird the sub-Antarctic Beech (Nothofagus) forests. Here we will look for Austral Parakeet, Striped Woodpecker, Chilean Flicker, the striking Magellanic Woodpecker, Thorn-tailed Rayadito, White-throated Treerunner and Austral Blackbird. Occasionally Chilean Hawk is seen here stalking the flocking parakeets. The scenery around Grey Lake and its homonymous glacier is simply breathtaking. During the rest of the day we will explore the lakes in the eastern side of the park searching for a wealth of waterfowl including Great, Silvery and White-tufted grebes, Andean Duck, Silver Teal plus Red-gartered and White-winged Coots. The reed-fringed lagoons can be very interesting; with some luck, the elusive and recently re-discovered Austral Rail might show up. We also expect to see Cinereous Harrier and Black-chested Buzzard-Eagle hovering about in search for prey. We will scan the fast-flowing rivers hoping to find the remarkable Torrent Duck. Although our time in the park is limited, there is always the chance of watching Puma, especially in the eastern side of the park.

Overnight at Hotel Rio Serrano, Torres del Paine. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner) (Guide).

Day 3 • Torres del Paine •– Sierra Baguales •– Drive back to Punta Arenas

Early in the morning we will explore Sierra Baguales range, located northeast of Torres del Paine. Along the road, in the scrubby gullies, we will look for interesting passerines such as Patagonian Mockingbird and Grey-bellied Shrike-Tyrant. As we continue exploring this montane habitat we might find the local White-throated Caracara, Grey-breasted Seedsnipe, Rufous-banded Miner, Cinnamon-bellied and Ochre-naped ground-tyrants, Patagonian and Greater yellow finches and the stunning Yellow-bridled Finch. During the afternoon you will be transferred to your lodging in Punta Arenas.

Day 4 •• Magdalena Island • Drive to Tierra del Fuego

Early in the morning, we will sail out bound for Magdalena Island, in the waters of the mythical Straits of Magellan, in Patagonia. This protected area holds a huge Magellanic Penguin colony of more than 150,000 individuals. Besides the penguins. We will be overwhelmed by the large numbers of penguins inhabiting every available spot of the island’s surface and by their raucous braying calls. Some of the penguins will be busy while landing, coming ashore from their feeding trips, taking a bath or preening and resting peacefully at the shoreline while others will be walking with its characteristic gait towards their burrows to incubate the eggs or attend their chicks. Several other seabird species breed in the island including Imperial and Rock Cormorants, Dolphin and Kelp Gulls, Chilean Skua and South American Tern. In the nearby Marta Island there is a fairly large colony of South American Sea Lions and occasionally Snowy Sheathbill can be spotted there. Back from Magdalena Island, we will head along the Magellan Straits shores and check patches of scrub where recently Patagonian Tinamou have been recorded.  A short ferry ride will take us to the mythic island of Tierra del Fuego and we hope to see the striking Commerson’’s Dolphin following the wake during our crossing. Once in the island, Chilean Flamingo, Upland and Ashy-headed geese, Coscoroba and Black-necked swans and Silver Teal are all possible sightings along with waders such as Baird’s and White-rumped sandpipers and Wilson’’s Phalarope at the roadside wetlands. We will truly enjoy our day exploring the beauty of this ‘big sky’ open country.

Overnight at Yendegaia House, Porvenir. (Lunch, Dinner) (Guide).

Day 5 •• Tierra del Fuego: Useless Bay for King penguins •– Baquedano Hills

Today we will explore the huge embayment of Bahía Inútil -Spanish for Useless Bay- for a wealth of seabirds, waterfowl and other shorebirds. We will concentrate in finding Flightless and Flying Steamer-Ducks and Kelp Goose as well as King, Imperial and Rock cormorants. En route, we’ll be checking the meadows and fields for the endangered Ruddy-headed Goose as well as for potential raptors including Variable Hawk, Aplomado and Peregrine falcons. Great Horned Owl nests in some ravines we will pass by, and there might be a chance of spotting this largest of Central and South American owls, second largest in the Americas. The main target of our visit to this scenic part of the island is the only continental King Penguin breeding colony. This splendid species congregates year-round on this site and in the past few years they have successfully re-started to breed here.On our way back to Porvenir, we will explore the shrubby slopes and moorlands of the Baquedano Hills, searching for specialties such as Rufous-chested Dotterel, Austral Canastero, and the stunning White-bridled Finch.

Overnight at Yendegaia House, Porvenir. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner) (Guide).

Day 6 •• Tierra del Fuego • Ferry to mainland

During the morning we will visit some alkaline lagoons and ponds east of the village. Our target here will be the local and rare Magellanic Plover. This enigmatic wader looks more similar to a little dove rather than to any shorebird, and is often seen feeding ‘scratching’ the mud with its bright pink legs. Other birds of the area will include Two-banded Plover, Wilson’’s Phalarope, the abundant White-rumped Sandpiper, Short-billed Miner and the ubiquitous Austral Negrito. Later we will take a 2-hour ferry journey back towards Punta Arenas; while crossing the mythic Straits of Magellan, we will see a variety of tubenoses such as Black-browed Albatross, Southern Giant Petrel, Cape and White-chinned petrels, Sooty Shearwater, Wilson’s Storm-Petrel and Magellanic Diving Petrel. We will see other seabirds including Chilean Skua, Kelp, Dolphin and Brown-hooded gulls and South American Tern. Possible marine mammals will include the common South American Sea Lion, Sei Whale and playful pods of Peale’s Dolphin.
