The fort itself is very nice with a good detailed historical display of the context during the time it was built.

Nevertheless, what I would recommend without hesitation are the trails and viewpoints around the fort. They are simply breathtaking.

As to the price, it is quite expensive considering there Is no investment in audio tour guides.

The entrance fee to this privately administrated attraction is too high for what they promise. Better do some trekking on your own in the nearby reserves, walk to the San Isidro lighthouse, or even visit Famine Port, which tells you a little bit of the history of the place.

The drive down was beautiful. We passed sea lions and dolphins along the shore. To know that you drive off the last bit of paved road on the South American continent, was kind of fun as well. The fort has been reconstructed using historical records. It is certainly interesting in understanding the settling of these very remote lands. The walks along the Straits were very informative as well, explaining how the Straits were formed. The views were also breathtaking. There was a gift shop and a cafe as well. Definitely worth a visit if you have the time.

Fort Bulnes was an interesting place to visit as it gave us a lot of information about early Chilean settlers in the South of Chile.

It was very cold and windy but nevertheless we enjoyed having a look inside all the reconstructed buildings that make up the fort.

The trip was organised by our hostel,, I think the company was called "Blue Laguna" or something similar.

About a 30 minute drive south of Punta Arenas brings you to Fort Bulnes. The fort itself is built of wood and mud-brick. The coolest part to me was seeing the craftsmanship that the settlers of Punta Arenas had in building this place. Overall, its not a very big place so its a way to kill a few hours or the afternoon if you get bored which is easy to do in Punta Arenas. Again, nothing special but if your bored its worth the short drive to spend the afternoon.
