Dientes de Navarino

Reviewed By Patricia B - Toronto, Canada

I recently completed the most amazing hiking adventure with Off Trail Patagonia. The location is wild and remote, the landscape is breathtaking, and the hike is challenging. Chino and the staff at Off Trail Patagonia specialize in off-the-beaten-track hiking adventures in Patagonia and this is definitely one of their best. We rarely saw another person, there was just the three of us hiking in an incredible landscape and dealing with crazy Patagonian weather.
Off Trail Patagonia’s professionalism and knowledge is only out done by their respect of the land they call “their office”. If you are not interested in fighting the crowds in Torres del Paine contact Chino about the incredible hiking adventures he offers in Patagonia.

In January 2016 we visited Isla Navarino and we made a kayak tour along the coast of the Beagle Channel with Jorge. A wonderful experience. After the tour we got an invitation to come to Puerto Eugenia where we were invited to eat and drink. After this break we visited amongst others a beaver's lodge. All was very interesting and Jorge could explain a lot about flora and fauna at Island Navarino. All was perfectly organized by him and we felt very very save. Thanks a lot for the wonderful hours. You may book a lot of different excursions with Jorge, incl. the Circuito de Dientes Navarino and we definitely recommend these activities.

Cerro Bandera

Reviewed By Tandroy F - Washington DC, District of Columbia

Unless you're a serious hiker/camper, the real purpose of coming to Puerto Williams is to visit the southernmost inhabited town. Since we didn't want to just sit around we decided to spend an afternoon doing this hike. The hike itself was pleasant and had some great views from the top, definitely worthwhile. Once you're past the beginning the trail is well marked.
However, at the beginning of the hike there's a big sign with a few small signs to indicate the trail head. Unfortunately there are arrows pointing to both the left and the right. We went right and got lost for maybe 45 minutes. Definitely go to the left, which is actually the correct trail.

Martin Gusinde Anthropological Museum

Reviewed By Michaël D - Victoria, Canada

This is a free museum at the bottom of the world. Quite large considering how isolated Puerto Williams is. Great information on the inhabitants of the area prior to colonization. There was an exhibit on the Pinochet years in the temporary exhibit when I visited. There is also some buildings around the museum of interest and there is a map to help you find them, as well as information on what they used to be when the city was founded.

This is quite an unusual botanic park. It is recommended that you join a guided tour, to be introduced to the 'micro forest' experience. They will provide you with a lens, and you will discover wonders usually not seen... Highly recommended.

A wonderfully remote and rewarding trek. The wind and weather require proper gear, but if prepared you’ll be fine. Great, thorough prep and planning from Francisco “Chino” – highly recommended as a guide who will make sure you have a great experience.

Un maravilloso parque ubicado a 2 Km al norte de puerto williams ubicado en un laguna hermosa, donde las actividades son simplemente entretenidas, como el canopi, kayak y water ball (con este último uno queda cansadísimo). Ademas el parque posee senderos para poder recorrerlo de extremo a extremo. No se arrepentirán de ir. Muy recomendado.
