The suthermost trekking in the world…
This trek is an absolutely wonderful place – the views over the Cape Horn archipelago are stunning and the landscapes changes rapidly so it feels as if you’ve covered even more ground than you really do.
Dientes de Navarino is a wonderful, but very demanding 5-6 days trek, only for seasoned trekkers. The challenge: the extremely variable weather (sub Antarctic), you have a sunny day, no wind and in less 10 minutes you can endure a blizzard, or thick fog and so.
