Dientes de Navarino
Isla Navarino, Puerto Williams
Dientes de Navarino is a mountain range that exceeds 1000 meters in height located south of the Beagle Channel and about 3 km from Puerto Williams, offering several trails to access its impressive beauty and particular geography. Although it is possible to hike the trails all year round, physical and equipment requirements are more demanding in winter, as temperatures are extremely low, snow accumulates in several areas and there are very few hours of daylight.
