Designer's notes

The 4-day 'Los Dientes de Navarino' is the world's southernmost trek, a 55km circuit in a remote and magnificent wilderness.

Seasoned Patagonia trekkers hold this route in awe, though it is little known outside the region.

It is not to be undertaken lightly. At any time walkers can be exposed to unstable weather conditions, including high winds, rain and snow-and swooped on by condors!

Favoured months are December to March.
