Chilean Antarctica

Parque Nacional Alberto de Agostini – Parque Nacional Cabo de Hornos – Parque Nacional Yendegaia

It is the southernmost city in the world, located on the north shore of Navarino Island, on the shores of the Beagle Channel at the foot of the impressive granite spiers of the Dientes de Navarino. There is a trekking circuit around this massif lasting around 4 days, which is undoubtedly one of the must-sees in Chile due to its incredible beauty.

This is the ancestral territory of the Yaganes, fishermen and gatherers who sailed to Cape Horn in canoes made from the bark of Coigüe, within which they always kept the fire burning and which could even have a sea lion skin sail. Women dived into the cold waters to shell hedgehogs and spider crabs. Puerto Williams, or Upushwea in the Yagán language, continues to host descendants of this ethnic group to this day. It was founded in 1953 with the name of Puerto Luisa and renamed 3 years later in commemoration of the English navigator Juan Williams, who took possession of the Strait of Magellan on behalf of Chile in 1843.
