From the 23rd to the 30th of March 2015 Dragón de la Patagonia organizes a multi-day hike around the impressive Dientes Range on Navarino island, Tierra del Fuego. Far away from civilization this hike leads through the unspoiled nature of the Cape Horn Biosphere Reserve with its rough mountainous landscape, swamplands, forests and amazing views over the Beagle channel and the Cape Horn archipelago. One of the last true hiking adventures on the planet!
The voyage starts in Punta Arenas. With a sturdy Twin Otter, a spectacular flight over the Darwin Range takes you to Isla Navarino. Upon arrival at the main town of Puerto Williams, the last preparations will be made before starting the hike. During the next four days participants will, accompanied by an experienced hiking guide, hike around the central mountain chain of the island; the Dientes de Navarino.
The trail leads the hikers through mystical southern beeches forests, over eternal snow fields, along deep-blue lagoons where a unique flora and fauna accompanies them along the way. The area of the circuit is protected by Unesco under the name of Cabo de Hornos Biosphere reserve and protects one of the 37 last wilderness areas currently existing in the world. The area has been and still is home to the indigenous Yaghan people who roamed the waters with their canoes, bringing their fires along with them.
The next trip will take place from 23 to 30 March 2015. More dates will be published soon on www.dragondelapatagonia.com. The price of this trip is USD 2060,- per person. Due to unstable weather conditions in the area, overnights in tents and long hiking days this tour can be challenging, but the reward is very high. To have a good time and be safe, having some hiking experience and being in good shape are a necessity.
Dragón de la Patagonia is a local Tour Operator in the South of Chile specializing in extraordinary experiences for active travelers.
