「身在IG遊世界.18」~ 智利篇2~ 麥哲倫海峽

麥哲倫海峽(英語:Strait of Magellan;西班牙語:Estrecho de Magallanes)是位於南美洲智利南部的一個海峽,處在南側的火地群島和北側的南美洲大陸之間。

麥哲倫海峽較德雷克海峽平靜,被認為是太平洋與大西洋之間最重要的天然航道,但由於長期難以預測的風向和海流,加上海峽狹窄,所以船隻航行仍較為困難。

在1914年巴拿馬運河落成之前,除了非常狹窄的比格爾海峽,麥哲倫海峽是太平洋與大西洋之間唯一的安全航行通道;

蓬塔阿雷納斯是麥哲倫海峽西岸的主要港口城市。

Conquered #Magellanstrait!

498 years ago, Ferdinand Magellan discovered and passed through this strait and became the first European to cross the Pacific. The view might be beautiful, with snow-capped mountains, blue skies and sunrise commencing later than 9am, but this was a bitter ordeal during their time having to deal with temperatures less than 7 degrees Celsius and rough seas on both ends of the strait with the technology and equipment that they have in their time.

PS: #Skyrim players will know that somewhere around these mountains there are words of power waiting to be learned. 😂

Where in the world shall we go next?!
I loved stumbling across these signposts in Chile’s most southerly town, Punta Arenas.

The SS Amadeo was a Chilean steam transport ship built in 1892. Known for the heroic rescue of the Norwegian Vigo's crew in the 1923 in the strait of Megellan, the ship was intentionally ran aground in 1932.

Hiking tour at the Strait of Magellan. It’s hard to imagine, but I had one of the best views of my life. Especially at the last pic. #chile #magellan #straitofmagellan #southern #nature #naturelovers #roadtrip #travel #vacation #🇨🇱 #patagonia #puntaarenas #farosanisidro #fuertebulnes #livetoexplore #earthporn

This was one of the best experiences of my life. Sailing through the Strait of Magellan on a warship with a cruiser from Chile beside us.
