World Expeditions has launched a new Patagonian trek – on the World’s southern-most island.
Described by Lonely Planet as one of Patagonia’s best treks, the 6 day Dientes Circuit on Navarino Island offers walkers stunning views of jagged mountain peaks, the Beagle Channel, the Chilean town of Puerto Williams, Nassau Bay, the Wollaston archipelago - and Cape Horn.
The 42km Dientes de Navarino Circuit is a challenging, remote wilderness trek on Navarino Island, during which walkers spend 3 nights camping and 2 nights in lodges. Trekkers carry full-packs, although World Expeditions offers a personal porter service at an additional cost.
Departing Punta Arenas or Ushuaia, the Dientes Circuit on Navarino Island is available between December and March and costs AU$3190 per person, including Punta Arenas - Puerto Willliam return flights, all meals, expert bilingual guides, the use of a gear pack including sleeping bag, mat and hiking poles, group camping equipment, group medical kit and a porter carrying camping equipment and food (not personal equipment).
The company has also added two new treks including the rarely accessed country behind the Fitzoy and Cerro Torre peaks: the 7 day Fitz Roy & Cerro Torre Backcountry Trek reaches remote regions by having walkers cross the Fitz Roy River by highline before traversing sections of glacier to Paso del Viento (pass of the winds) to get amazing views of remote parts of the Southern Patagonia Ice Field and the 11 day Fitz Roy Circuit and Icecap Traverse, which circumnavigates the peaks.
