Description

Join me on this 6-day challenging Sierra de Navarino (Dientes de Navarino) circuit trek and discover an absolutely wonderful place in Tierra del Fuego, with one of the most southernmost trekking adventures in the world!

Starting from the city of Ushuaia, in Argentina, we will be walking on wild trails, surrounded by untouched and rugged nature, on a round circuit, crossing to Chile and finishing back in Ushuaia. The views over the Cape Horn archipelago are amazing and the scenery changes along the way, so you will feel that you have covered even more kilometers than you really do.

From Ushuaia, we will trek to Puerto Williams (Chile), crossing the Beagle Channel. Then, from Puerto Williams , we will head to the Dientes de Navarino peaks. On the next days, we will trek to Laguna Martillo and on the fourth day we will reach Paso Virginia (859m), the highest point of the circuit.

You will be amazed by the moon-like scenery the wind has created here. From Paso Virginia we will enjoy incredible views to Cordillera Darwin and Ushuaia. We will pass by Puerto Williams on our way back, until we get to Ushuaia again. You can check the day-by-day itinerary below.

Every day, we will be walking for about 5 to 6 hours. Along these days, we willbe camping in wild places, surrounded by pristine landscapes, away from civilization.

Bear in mind this is a very demanding trek, only for experienced trekkers. The main challenge in Tierra del Fuego is the extremely variable weather: you can have lots of sun and no wind in the morning and 10 minutes later the landscape is covered with a thick fog.

So if you want to enjoy an unforgettable trekking experience, just send me a request and book your trip! Come join me for the southernmost trekking adventure in the world!
