Tierra Del Fuego

Compartir en

Ferdinand Magellan discovered and gave this place the name Tierra del Fuego because of the bonfires the Selk’nam Indians used to light, and you can see these while sailing. Come visit one of the most extreme landscapes of Chile and be amazed by its steep slopes where the guanaco and wild horses run free and where lonely condors soar above the Darwin Mountain range.

Learn about the history of its ancient inhabitants and of the settlers that risked their fate to work in the southernment tip of the planet. Visit Porvenir and the Fernando Cordero Rusque Museum that have interesting exhibitions of Tierra del Fuego fauna, archaeology and anthropology, and stories from the gold rush of this part of Chile.

Do you want a reward for walking? The Fagnano and Deseado Lakes are good resting points for the long walks and trekking routes available in these pristine landscapes that offer an unforgettable experience for fly fishing lovers.

Get on one of the cruise ships that sail to Puerto Williams and Cabo de Hornos (Cape Horn) and then go deep into the Tierra del Fuego fjords. Don’t forget your camera to capture the spectacular wilderness and ice floes. This destination offers the challenge of trekking around the Dientes de Navarino trail, the southernmost trek in the world, one that’s not for the faint-hearted. Do you dare?
