Description

This expedition is an amazing adventure in southernmost Patagonia. Peninsula Mitre has stunning landscapes, wildlife, and a unique story of golddiggers and pioneers. On this 10-day adventure, we will explore this remote region and get to sail back to Ushuaia through the awe-inspiring Beagle Channel.

Peninsula Mitre is about to be declared a protected area. It is a pristine and unique area of the world dotted with mountain ranges, forests, peatland, rocks, and sand beaches. Due to its ecosystems, climate and remoteness, it is one of the only places on Earth where nature is intact.

On this adventure, we will trek through a wide variety of terrains, cross rivers, and camp in unique sites. We will hike without following any trail and then sail back through the mythical Beagle Channel. You can find a detailed day-by-day description of the itinerary below.

On average, we will trek between 10 to 15 km per day. However, the type of terrain will vary greatly.  Since we won’t be following a trail, you should expect a lot of variation and up and down trekking. In order to participate, you should be able to walk 8 hours per day and have experience with multi-day treks.

If you would like to join this unforgettable adventure in Peninsula Mitre then contact me! I will be happy to be your guide in Tierra del Fuego.
