Isla Navarino, Puerto Williams
On the southern shore of the Beagle Channel and about 50 kms from Puerto Williams, lies this hamlet at the end of the world. A humid and cold climate throughout the year, you will find flag trees that grow to the measure of the incessant wind, and mountainous backdrops to the few inhabited places of this corner. Historic houses on the shore of the port with high movie potential speak of the beauty of the silence, the wind and the Patagonian solitude.
