The conference will take place at the hotel Costaustralis which is nicely located at the sea in Puerto Natales in Patagonia.
Puerto Natales is a little touristic town located at the opening of the Inlet of last Hope and known as a base point for daily tours into the NAtional Park Torres del Paine. There are dalso daily tours to impresive glaciers in Patagonia and places populate by the king-penguin.
There are flights from Santiago directly to Puerto Natales, however, they are very expensive and only run in high season twice a week, Tuesdays and Saturdays. But Puerto Natales is well connected by Bus to Punta Arenas with daily flights to and from Santiago.
If enough people are interested we will be trying to organize some tours with better group prices for the free day on Thursday. More information will be posted later.
