Róbalo Lagoon

Róbalo Lagoon

Isla Navarino, Puerto Williams

This lagoon, that features Dientes de Navarino as a backdrop, can be accessed about 3 km from Puerto Williams, where you can walk a path of wetland forest and fallen trees with exposed roots that look like carved thrones, with the constant sound of the river that sets a path where it is easy to lose oneself, with few decoys, but full of nooks and the perfect scenery for telling fantastic and timeless stories.
