Itinerary

Day 1: Welcome to Puerto Williams

Puerto Williams, Chile

We’ll start the trip by flying from Punta Arenas to the small town of Puerto Williams, followed by an afternoon outing to the OMORA Ethnobotanical Park to experience “magnifying glass tourism,” a new venture that opens up the world of miniature lichens, moss and bryophyte forests. We will then enjoy a nice meal and have a briefing about the next day’s trekking excursion.

Overnight at Errante Lodge

Day 2: Start the Trekking Adventure

Navarino Island, Chile

Let the adventure begin! Today we'll start the Dientes Circuit and take in amazing views of the Beagle Channel and Puerto Williams as we walk towards the Salto Lagoon. Depending on the weather conditions, we will either tackle the high-end slope of the Robalo Valley or move along the back of the valley. Either way, the landscape is unreal and we'll get to the night’s camping spot in time for a warm dinner.

After passing by several scenic lakes, we'll climb Ventarron path (696 mts) for an incredible view of the Dientes de Navarino mountain peaks and across to Mount Codrington. Get your cameras ready! We will then continue to enjoy the landscape while on the way to Laguna Martillo, our second camping site.
