Like the Paine Circuit 20 years ago, the Dientes de Navarino Mountains on Chile's Isla Navarino let you experience wild nature on some of the least-explored trails on earth. You won't find shops, hotels, or amenities along the way — just raw nature at its most beautiful. Hike through mystical beech forests, cross vast snowfields, and take in amazing views over the Beagle Channel. You will definitely push yourself, and you should be prepared for extreme changes in weather conditions. But for the adventurous traveler, the rewards of this spectacular journey will be well worth it.

Itinerary

Arrive in Punta Arenas

Meet an MT Sobek representative at the airport and transfer to your hotel. Meet with your group and guide at 7pm for a briefing followed by a welcome dinner.

Fly to Puerto Williams

Fly over the Strait of Magellan and the Darwin Range — a truly spectacular and a worthwhile experience in itself — to Puerto Williams.

Hike to Laguna del Salto

Set out on your first day of hiking, enjoying amazing views of Puerto Williams, the Beagle Channel, and Tierra del Fuego along the way. Make a steep descent to Laguna del Salto and set up camp on the shore of the lake.

Climb to Paso Australis

Climb from Laguna Salto to Paso Primero, a small rocky pass, then continue on to
Paso Australis, the highest point of the day at 2,624 feet. After crossing the lower Paso los Dientes, continue downhill to Laguna Escondida, your camp for the night.

Hike to Laguna Martillo

Gear up for a day of hiking in the wildest and most untouched portion of the circuit. Pause at Paso Ventarron (2,300' elevation) to take in views of the jagged peaks of the Lindenmayer range, then continue on to Laguna Martillo, your final destination of the day.

Continue to Los Guanacos Lagoon

Ascend to Paso Virginia to reach the highest point of the hike at 2,788 feet. Take your time to descend on the steep downhill to Laguna Los Guanacos, named after the camelid species native to South America.

Descend to Bahía Virginia

On your final day of hiking, descend to Bahía Virginia and Puerto Williams. Spend the afternoon at your leisure, exploring the town and perhaps visiting the local museum to learn more about the original peoples from Tierra Del Fuego. Gather for dinner at a local restaurant.

Fly back to Punta Arenas

Say goodbye to Isla Navarino, taking the flight back to Punta Arenas through the Beagle Channel. Transfer back to the center of Punta Arenas, and gather in the evening for a farewell dinner.

Depart from Chile

Transfer to Punta Arenas Airport for your flight to Santiago and continue to your next destination.
