Experience the Dientes de Navarino Trek, an awe-inspiring adventure that takes you deep into Patagonia’s untouched wilderness at the southernmost tip of the world. Trek through rugged mountain passes, witnessing nature’s wonders at every step. Immerse yourself in the pristine beauty of Tierra del Fuego in an unforgettable journey through the heart of Patagonia’s last southernmost frontier.
Hiking the southernmost trail in the world is much more than a physical test. It is an experience that challenges all your senses and your sense of wonder. Magellanic clouds, strong winds, snow, and ice will follow you every step of the way, so being prepared is essential to enjoy and immerse yourself in this unique nature. This is a journey through the purest ecosystems in the world, while listening to the silence of the wind and the breathing of the mountains. It is an invitation to rediscover ground zero.
Depending on the arrival route, guests will be collected from the airport, pier or governorate and transported to the ecolodge. After settling into the rooms and enjoying a welcome lunch or dinner, we will have a briefing with the guide and a detailed equipment check.
After enjoying a hearty breakfast at the ecolodge, we will be transported to the Rio Róbalo water intake, where we will start the circuit around 9:30 AM. First, we will cross the forest, ascending up to 600 m.a.s.l. until we reach the top, where a large Chilean flag waves and we can enjoy the beautiful panoramic view of the city and the Beagle Channel and Tierra del Fuego. Then we continue along the edge of the forest, following the valley of the Róbalo River until we reach the Salto Lagoon and set up camp around 19:00.
After breakfast and dismantling the camp, we start our trekking at 9 AM. We return to the trail to reach the Australia Pass, surrounding the Dientes de Navarino massif, where we can see the south of the island and the Wollaston Islands to the north of the Cape Horn archipelago. It is an intense moment as we literally see the edge of the world. We continue walking until we reach an area suitable for camping between Laguna de los Dientes or Laguna Escondida around 19.00.
Breakfast at 8.00 and dismantling of the camp to start walking at 9.00. The trail will take us through fairytale scenery, beautiful lagoons, and forests with the Dientes massif as a backdrop. We will continue until we reach Paso Ventarrón and Paso Guerrico passages, ascending to 700 m.a.s.l., approaching the beautiful Guerrico Valley. We will have a snack at 13h and then continue our route until we find a suitable place to set up camp between Laguna Martillo and Laguna Zeta.
Breakfast at 8.00 and dismantling of camp to start our trekking at 9.00 AM. We start the ascent to Paso Virginia, the highest point of the circuit at 844 m.a.s.l. At the top, an amazing view of the Beagle Channel and Tierra del Fuego awaits us. We descend around the beautiful Laguna Guanaco, and follow the trail to where the forest begins to have a snack around 13h. Then we continue the descent until we arrive near the Mac Lean fishery, an abandoned building next to the main road less than 2 km from the ecolodge, to finally arrive at the refuge around 18.00, to rest and share a well-deserved farewell dinner.
