The Southernmost Hike in the World


(Antarcticans will take issue)

At this latitude the landscape whinges gray for days, a whitish welcome of sharp winds, hail and disappearing trail lines. It's just to tease. If you love mountains, Dientes de Navarino, the world's southernmost hike, is a must-know. The 53-km circuit winds through Austral beech forest, peat bogs and teacup lagoons, but mostly takes place in a theater of rock above tree line.

Carolyn, I would like to contact you cause this year starts the new concession of this circuit. We are going to build a refugio and campsites as in Torres del Paine, our intentions is to learn from this and try to make a better experience.
Un abrazo
Sergio
