Dientes de Navarino: South America’s final trek with Chile Nativo

Chile Nativo invites the boldest travelers to challenge their limits with five days spent trekking through some of Patagonia’s most untouched landscapes.

Navarino Island is one of the last places in the world where hardly anyone goes and there is no infrastructure. And that’s just as it should be.

Located to the south of Puerto Williams, this trek takes hikers on five days immersed in the wilderness, passing forests, snow, rocky hills, lakes, and mountain passes—all with views that make you feel small.

Groups of a maximum of eight guests create a strong bond, dividing and carrying all the equipment required during the five days. In addition, Chile Nativo’s expeditions include a porter who accompanies the group, cooking meals and carrying a portable toilet tent that makes it possible to carry out waste at the end of the trip through an innovative yet discrete non-polluting system. The system is so efficient that CONAF will soon implement its use in other remote hiking areas in Chile’s south.

Only highly-qualified local guides meeting Chile Nativo’s strict criteria lead the Dientes de Navarino program. Given their intimate knowledge of the area, the company is able to carry out a detour allowing groups to climb Cerro Bettinelli and take in the unforgettable views of Cape Horn from its summit, while still keeping the entire program at five days. On the final day, travelers visit Parque Omora and are able to use magnifying glasses to appreciate the microflora that call this remote island home.

Dientes de Navarino is a program that attracts the strongest and most curious hikers, those interested in sustainable tourism and seeking to test their limits through a trekking and camping experience completely removed from the crowds of Patagonia’s well-known tourist trails.
