Getting There & Away

It's possible to book overflights with Aerovías DAP in Punta Arenas.

Landings at Cape Horn are very infrequent. They are expensive to attempt (ships must have a Chilean pilot for navigation in the shoal-filled offshore waters) and the weather seldom cooperates. Chilean authorities routinely refuse requests to make landings – or even to approach closely. When permission is granted, landings are usually made in the westward of the two bays located east of the cape. A steep wooden staircase of about 110 steps leads to high ground above the beach.
