Isla Navarino, Puerto Williams
To approach Dientes de Navarino as a location, you’ll need to trek along some trails. The main one is La Bandera hill, a trail that will bring you closer to an imposing geology carved by glaciations over two million years, a dismembered landscape where sea and land meet at the crossroads between the Pacific, Atlantic and Antarctic oceans. Located about a 10-minute car journey from Puerto Williams, you can access the trail to La Bandera all year round, where you will find wet and wild lenga forests and viewpoints where the mountainous Dientes de Navarino emerge.
Featured in Bandera Hill
The trail is adequately signposted leading to the main viewpoint, which is an ideal film set to capture the immensity of nature, the mountains and views of the city and the Canal Beagle.
Landscape, mountain, forest
From the city center and a 10 minute drive, take Via1 street until you reach the end of the road, at the water intake of the Rio Róbalo. There is a small parking area. During the high season there is a CONAF office where you can register before going up the trail. With light technical equipment, it takes about 2 hours to reach the summit.
This location requires highly coordinated production logistics for any type of audiovisual project, as it is located in the southernmost area of the continent, and it is a trail where all equipment must be carried by hand. This location is recommended for small, light and adventurous teams. The trail signage is reflective, in case it gets dark.
