Introduction

Chile is a country of extremes. It extends almost 5000 kilometers from North to South while it’s average width is 180 kilometers. This strip of land is bordered by the Pacific Ocean on the West and the Andes mountain range to the East. All this together gives Chile a crazy, unique and contrasting geography. The climate, nature, culture and the people’s way of life are very different and multi-faceted depending on each region. Our trip will take us to the extreme south of Chile. From the port city of Punta Arenas we will fly to Puerto Williams, the southernmost city in the world and the capital of the Navarino Island. Here we start our trek through the “Dientes de Navarino” mountain range lasting four days. This area is located a little north of Cape Horn and is full of the magic and nostalgia of the end if the world. An excursion by kayak on the Beagle Channel and exploring the flora and fauna particular to the “Antarctic Province” complete this trip full of unique nature and wonderful trekking.

Highlights

  • Punta Arenas is the gateway into the Antarctic. Here scientists and nature lovers from all over the world get together. The busy street life of the historic centre invites us to explore and enjoy the streets.
  • Between 30.000 and 40.000 pairs of Magellanic Penguins reproduce each year on the Magdalena Island. Here we will enjoy a magnificent natural show put on by the birds.
  • The world’s most southern trekking circuit of four days around the “Dientes de Navarino” mountain range.
  • We experiment the forces of nature during our intense time spent at the “end of the world”, north of Cape Horn.
  • At the Ethno-Botanical Park “Omora” we will learn about the sub-antarctic ecosystem and using a magnifying glass will explore the micro world of lichen and moss.
  • With kayaks we will navigate the Beagle Channel, following the old routes used by the indigenous people, the Yaghan and learn about their fascinating culture.
